Drumroamin Farm Camping & Caravan Site
Kirkinner, Newton Stewart, DG8 9DB
The twice annual Galloway Star Camp is a popular event among astronomers — it’s remote location away from light pollution affords some of the very best views of the darkest of skies. You’ll find a very friendly welcome by the staff at Drumroamin Farm who will make your stay comfortable with excellent on site facilities. The local area is a delight to explore by day and when the skies darken a whole Universe to explore above!
