Opening up Scotland's last true wilderness - the ancient Kingdom of Galloway


The ancient kingdom of Galloway is now part of Dumfries and Galloway, one of the UK’s least populated administrative areas. Stretching more than 110 miles from end to end, Dumfries and Galloway has a population of just 148,000 people, mostly concentrated in the towns of Dumfries, Lockerbie, Castle Douglas, Newton Stewart and Stranraer. 

For this reason, Dumfries and Galloway is home to tens of thousands of square miles of wilderness with stunning landscapes, mountains and rugged coastline. 

Despite the fact that part of the region shares a border with England, Dumfries and Galloway is one of the least discovered parts of Scotland, making it perfect for those who wish to experience the outstanding and remote landscapes and the wide variety of wildlife on offer. 

Of course, some of this beautiful area can be visited from public roads. But huge tracts of the area’s true wilderness cannot, unless you are literally prepared to hike for miles. 

Now, 4x4 Treks Scotland is opening up this last wilderness to allow visitors to the region to really see a Scotland that many will not have previously experienced. 

4x4 Treks Scotland's off-road adventure tours will take you into the heart of some of the area’s most remote and breathtaking wilderness. The dominant feature of our routes is the huge Galloway Forest Park:

  • designated the UK’s first Dark Skies Park
  • 193,000 acres in area
  • more than 500 miles of dirt roads which snake over its hills
  • 300 miles of rivers flow through its glens
  • over 150 lochs are to be found amid the wild moorland and mountain crags
  • home to iconic species such as hen harriers, red kites, golden eagles, red deer and otters.
