High Park Farm :

There is always a warm welcome awaiting guests at High Park, a comfortable stone-built farmhouse built in 1838. This 171-acre family-run Dairy, Sheep and Stock-Rearing Farm, is beside lovely Loch Ken, a popular spot for fishing and boating. High Park is 12 miles north of Castle Douglas on the A713 to Ayr. High Park is only 2 miles away from the small and picturesque town of New Galloway, an ideal centre for touring the area. Besides its beautiful setting in the Galloway Hills, the town has its own 9-hole Golf Course.

All bedrooms have wash hand basins, shaver points, central heating, tea and coffee making facilities, and a colour TV.

Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m.

There are a wide variety of good eating places in the surrounding area. The Smithy Restaurant in New Galloway, the Clachan Inn in Dalry, and the Cross Keys Hotel, are well-spoken-of by our guests.
