Birdwatching / Galloway Red Kite Trail

Park Facilities Image

Loch Ken Holiday Park is home of the Parton Walk and viewpoint, part of the Galloway Red Kite Trail, where you can see the Red Kites in all their glory. It is a 1km walk along the edge of pasture and woodland to reach an elevated viewpoint overlooking Loch Ken and the surrounding area. Kites can be seen from any part of this walk at any time of year. Just a short drive away is the Ballymack Hill Farm (feeding station), where you can see these majestic birds feeding.

Other birds to look out for around and about include the nuthatch, willow tit, great-spotted woodpecker, goldcrest, sparrowhawk, barn owl, buzzard, red grouse, black grouse, oyster catcher, greylag, & heron etc...

    The location is amazing with the touring site overlooking the banks of Loch Ken. The staff are friendly & could not be more helpful. A totally relaxing place to visit.

    Stayed here for a week two adults & two kids, absolutely loved it. Beautiful location right on the shores of Loch Ken with fantastic views. The tent pitches were massive & the site was kept very clean and tidy

    Great stay in our motor home, friendly staff, modern, clean facilities, plenty to do on site, play parks, fishing, boat hire, and a well stocked shop. An ideal base for touring the Galloway Forrest Park. We'll definitely return!

    First stop on our motor home trip around Scotland and it set the standard for the rest of our camp site visits. A beautifully laid out site, quality amenities and great hosts, with a Loch-side position, it can't get much better!
