With its easy rolling hills and beautiful coastline, the lovely country in the far western reaches of the ancient district of Galloway is perfect for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers who choose our holiday parks in Wigtownshire.
This is a landscape steeped in ancient religion and early Christianity – make time to visit the mystical Torhouse Bronze Age stone circle and the ‘Wren’s Egg’ standing stones near Monreith – easily accessible from our holiday parks in Wigtownshire. And the bay where the saint is said to have first set foot in Scotland is where you’ll find St Ninian’s Cave. The chapel dedicated to the saint lies in the Isle of Whithorn, a gorgeous little village lying at the southern tip of The Machars. No longer an island, it still boasts a very picturesque working harbour.
But no caravan holidays in Wigtownshire would be complete without a trip to Wigtown itself. Known as Scotland’s Book Town, it is a paradise for book lovers, boasting around 20 bookshops including the largest secondhand bookstore in Scotland. And when you tire of the written word, head just south of town to the little village of Bladnoch for a wee dram of single malt – there’s been a distillery here since 1817.
