Galloway Red Deer Range

Just a quick post to let you know that our Red Deer Range is now open Tuesdays and Thursdays during June and we lead guided walks on these days at 11am - 12.30pm. In July we run the guided walks Sunday - Thursdays, same time, so there is even more opportunity to see these fantastic animals in their natural habitat! Costs and directions can be found in our events guide or call us on 01671 402420.

Quite a few of the female deer have given birth recently and so there are some very cute looking baby deers walking around at the moment! Some baby pictures will be posted on our slideshow shortly!


We are currently making some changes to our website and so there maybe some technical issues that come up during that process. We aim to get this done asap but please be patient with us!

Thats all for now


  1. We will be on holiday near here at the end of September/beginning of October and would love to visit the Red Deer Range. Can you tell us what the opening hours are please?

  2. Hi there

    The Deer Range has tours until the 3rd September (today). After this you can still go up to the fence and view the deer, but you can't get in to the range, until our Roaring Stags event from the 4th to the 9th October. Contact Galloway District on 01671 402420 for details.
    The Wild Goat Park is always open for visits though.
