Wild Goat Park
Have a close encounter with Galloway's wild goats
These hairy, long-horned animals are British Primitive Goats. Goats like these were kept by our ancestors, who valued them for their milk, meat and skins.
Around 50 live in the Park while several hundred more live in the surrounding hills.

You'll find parking, toilets (including accessible facilities), a café and a shop at Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre or Kirroughtree Visitor Centre at each end of the Queen's Way.
