New Deer Hide

The next time you visit the Galloway Forest Park check out our new Red Deer Range hide. It's not brand new we have recycled it from an old storage shed we had at Glentrool that wasn't needed for storage anymore. We couldn't bring ourselves to demolish the shed because although it's been a storage shed for years it was still a really good shed.

So we moved it up to the deer range, put windows in it, some chairs and now we have a hide that can be used to watch the deer whilst sheltering from the rain! Recycling at its best!

We are currently busy writing up some information about the stags that will be displayed in the hide to help you spot the different characters we have in the Deer Range.

So next time you're in the area pop in and say hello, we would love to know what you think of our new hide.
