Walking in Dumfries & Galloway

Newark Farm, an ideal base for walking around Sanquhar, Upper Nithsdale, Dumfries and Galloway and the Southern Upland Way

Walking on the Southern Upland Way at Newark Farm, Sanquhar

The Southern Upland Way actually passes through the farm, so there are few better places to stop and relax when walking across Southern Scotland. There are also numerous local short walks available for walkers to readily enjoy the beautiful scenery of Upper Nithsdale, the Lowther Hills and the wider Dumfries and Galloway Region.
