Heritage Hubs of the Galloway Glens
The Built Heritage of the GGLP area is unique. Some of it's most visible and iconic buildings are in community ownership but are struggling to attract enough visitors and use to remain sustainable. Recently, a number of informal heritage days have been held that identified a demand from visitors and locals to better understand the local cultural and natural heritage.
The Heritage Hubs programme therefore aims to support four much-loved buildings in the valley, as well as exploiting opportunities for joint working with other existing facilities in New Galloway and Carsphairn. Branding and alignment of opening hours will be used to create a ‘Heritage Trail’, hoping to draw footfall up the valley from the more populated south of the area..
