The low stone walls and earthen banks of a post-medieval township were recently discovered in Glen Brittle Forest on the Isle of Skye during an environmental check ahead of harvest...
These hairy, long-horned animals are British Primitive Goats. Hardy goats like these were kept by our ancestors, who valued them for their milk, meat and skins.
Several hundred live in the surrounding hills, while about 50 are based in our large enclosure.
The Wild Goat Park aims to recreate a natural environment where they have plenty of space to roam. At any time, but especially in summer, they can disappear among the rocky heights to graze.
If you don’t see them, then head over to the Red Deer Range to look for these beautiful animals and try again later: the goats move around a lot during the day.
There is no charge to park in this car park. Please park with care and consideration. In particular please park in designated parking areas only and do not block entrances or gates.
The car park for Wild Goat Park is on the north side of A712 (also known as The Queen's Way) between Newton Stewart and New Galloway.
