Far from the maddening crowd...Dumfries & Galloway is often by-passed by tourists in their desperation to see the 'real' Scotland. That's GOOD NEWS! because it means there are literally thousands of square miles of woodlands, hills, coast and moorlands to be explored in comparative solitude, whether on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or by car.
The Ellangowan Hotel in historic Creetown, is centrally located to take advantage of these opportunities in a 'miniature' Scotland - activity centres, sheltered coves, sandy beaches, forest trails & glorious hill walking.
The region is rich in quality golf courses, ideal for golfers of every standard, and all set in glorious countryside.
CYCLING & MOUNTAIN BIKING BREAKS
The Ellangowan Hotel is located a short distance from the Galloway Forest Park and popular 7 Stanes Mountain Bike Trails.
The surrounding countryside offers attractions for every walker. You can amble, ramble, scramble, walk or hike - select the terrain to suit your capabilities.
There are 5 RSPB Reserves within 1 hour's drive, a Red Kite Trail, and countless other sites where a huge variety of birdlife can be seen.
