Galloway House
Front view of this George II mansion house described as an immense classical pile located a half-mile south of Garlieston. Started in 1740-42 it has had several extensions, been remodelled and changed from private to public ownership, but is now in private hands. LinkExternal link

Galloway House Gardens also date back to 1740 and are set in over fifty acres of designed parkland. There is a mature Handkerchief Tree (Davidia Involucrata) that flowers in late spring sharing impressive company with the Eucryphia and Magnolias. Three Davidia's have been planted in the last ten years, two of which flowered in Spring 2011. LinkExternal link

Nearby, Historic Scotland have scheduled the Mulberry Harbour remains at Rigg Bay as a monument of national importance in recognition of the role it played during the preparations for the D-Day landings in World War II. LinkExternal link

Galloway House is currently on the open market for 1.5m. LinkExternal link.
