Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre and Café

Galloway Tourist Route

Enjoy panoramic loch-side views over the Galloway hills from Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre and Café. From here you can wander alongside the loch to Bruce's Stone, which is dedicated to the Scottish king, Robert the Bruce, who took refuge in Galloway during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

For a longer walk head to the south of Clatteringshaws Loch where you can join the top of the Raiders Road Forest Drive, a 10 mile walking route. Part of Galloway Forest Park, which is a recognised Dark Sky Park, this area is excellent for stargazing. To find out more about the dark skies visit the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory at Craigengillan near Dalmellington.
