Should be ok there if not go to the deer centre a few miles passed Clatteringshaws heading west, we normally stay in the top car park.

Over 6000 miles between 3 March to 26 September 2017.
If you head away from the visitor centre with the loch on your right, there is shortly a left turn onto the Raider''s Road. As you turn into it there is a car park on your right. We overnighted there once.

Since 1964 Gosh that makes me feel old.
No midges at all at this time of year.
There is a dark skies observatory at Craigengillan estate
, http://www.ahss.org.uk/events/craigengillan-estate-scottish-dark-sky-observatory-coach-tour/

You enter the observatory from the small road leading to Loch Doon, wild camping at the far end of the Loch near the castle is perfect & at this time of year the amount of stars you can see is mind blowing.

Nice wee campsite next to House O The Hill pub. There are some weight restrictions about 1.1miles from Bruce's Stone & I for one wouldn't risk crossing it in a heavy motorhome.

You wanna bet!
Eaten alive at New England Bay earlier this week!:eek:
G** knows what it would have been like in the trees!

Ah we posted all of our midges down to The Mull of Galloway especially for you, we thought you might be missing them? ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:::bigsmile::pinocchio:

We've already had a few hard frosts in the Galloway Forest Park & it seems to have killed em all off here
