The Rhins of Galloway is an undiscovered part of Dumfries and Galloway, situated only two hours drive from Glasgow. Elaine the owner of Dundream holistic retreat in the North Rhins of Galloway, is passionate about the area she grew up in and now enjoys promoting it as a relaxing hideaway destination for UK and overseas visitors. The hammerhead peninsula called the Rhins stretches 25 miles from north to south. With its breathtaking scenery and fresh sea breezes the Rhins of Galloway proudly hosts the following accolades:
The most southerly point of Scotland is found at the Mull of Galloway, with views on a clear day to the Isle of Man and the Lake District. It also has a RSPB reserve and coffee-house perched on the cliff face called the Gallie Craig.
Abundant flora and fauna are found around the Rhins rocky shores: seals; dolphins; basking sharks; sea birds; birds of prey; deer; foxes; badgers and hares. Corsewall point and the shores of Loch Ryan are renowned for bird watching.
The Southern Upland Way which stretched 212 miles from the pretty village of Portpatrick in the south west of Scotland to Cockburnspath in the east.
Amazing unspoiled and uncrowded beaches for a fun family day out. Killantringan bay is one of Elaine’s favourites. Great for bracing dips in the refreshing Irish sea, picnics and finishing with a game of rounders!
