Welcome to the Garlieston Lodge web site. Garlieston Lodge is situated in the village of Garlieston. The Lodge was originally built in the 1800's as a Gate Lodge for Galloway House, the seat of the Earl of Galloway and sits in its own 5 acres of woodland with a small river running through it. The river feeds into our small ¾ acre trout fishery populated with rainbow, brown and brook trout, we also have a small breeding herd of rare breed Large Blacks Britain’s only all black pigs. On the rest of the small holding we have free range hens, geese and ducks. Wild deer can often be seen in the morning drinking from our fishery.
Garlieston Harbour is steeped in maritime history and is the birth place of the famous floating Mulberry Harbours. The coastline at Wigtown Bay is home to an internationally recognised conservation reserve, important for wintering whooper swans, pink-footed geese, pintail and curlew.
Garlieston is the ideal place to spend a holiday or weekend break. The harbour village has a grocery and general dealer with a post office, a bowling green, tennis courts, a pub serving food and a tea room.
The Harbour, which is less than a minutes walk away from the Lodge, provides an excellent slipway to launch from and enjoy the Wigtown Bay estuary..
