The park is producing 500,000 tons of timber per year. But it is also a recreational park.

Galloway Forest Park receives over 800,000 visitors per year. There is good but rough hillwalking, also some rock climbing, ice-climbing and several well developed mountain bike tracks, forming part of the 7stanes project.

Galloway Forest Park is a Dark Sky Park.

To find dark places to observe the sky is very hard with all the light polution.
That’s why the organisation Dark-Sky Association created the Branded Dark Sky Parks or DSPs.

This location rates a 2/9 on the Bortle dark-sky scale. This is a measure of light pollution. 1 is a value for the middle of the ocean. 9 is a value for the inner-city.
