Accessing the Galloway Glens

Access to the natural heritage of the Galloway Glens area is influenced by a number of factors, including legislation, the interest of access takers, land owner approaches and statutory considerations in relation to the use of the river by the hydro scheme.

Despite these often conflicting background challenges, a suite of exciting, innovative and beneficial projects has been developed that will improve the access provision across the area and allow more people to engage with the natural environment and heritage.

The projects have been developed with a range of partners and wil create a number of related benefits such as volunteer activities, health & wellbeing benefits and support to the local economy.
