Have a close encounter with Galloway's wild goats

A great opportunity to get close to the goats that have been roaming this area since the 1970s. Around 50 live in the Park while several hundred more live in the surrounding hills.

These hairy, long-horned beasts are British Primitive Goats. Goats like these were kept by our ancestors, who valued them for their milk, meat and skins.
