the River Cree and at the foot of the Galloway Hills in Dumfries and Galloway, South-west Scotland.

is known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills and the Galloway Forest Park is the only official dark skies park outside North
America, perfect for star-gazing, and also boasts one of the most challenging mountain bike trails in the world.

due to very low population density.
