Forests all across Scotland have been seriously affected by recent storms. We are doing everything we can to make our forests safe for visitors, communities, forest businesses and our staff. However, many of our forests remain closed while others have significant diversions and access restrictions for the foreseeable future. Please keep safe and follow all closure notices and safety signage.
Take care on or around open water. Find out more on our Water Safety page.
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.
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.
