  • Quiet and remote wee site - the only campsite in Galloway Forest Park
  • In the UK's first Dark Sky Park, an area very popular with stargazers
  • Great local pub just eight minutes away

Glentrool Camping and Caravan Site is a quiet campsite and the only campsite within Galloway Forest Park - the UK's first Dark Sky Park, which makes it very popular with stargazers. It is also the perfect base to explore the 300 square miles of spectacular landscapes which are home to a wide variety of wildlife including birds of prey.

In a picturesque setting complete with a pond and the site's own lovely Shetland ponies, Glentrool has a motorhome service point, dog-walking area, a small shop on site, and free shower block facilities.

After a day of sightseeing, hiking or mountain biking you can head to the great local pub a mere eight minutes away that serves excellent food - have a meal then head back and enjoy the stars!
