Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership Scheme

The Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership Scheme is  an initiative led by Dumfries and Galloway Council, developed in partnership with the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere and other local organisations.

Focused on the Ken Dee River catchment, and running from the core of the Biosphere at Silver Flow down to its outer edges on the Solway coast, the Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership has galvanized local people and organisations with an interest in the area and a wish to better understand the heritage contained therein into making better use of the unique natural and built heritage of the area to encourage sustainable communities now and into the future.

The Partnership consists of a range of organisations including, amongst others, Dumfries & Galloway Council, local community organisations, The Galloway & Southern Ayrshire Biosphere, Forestry Commission Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland. The Partnership is ably supported by working groups consisting of a whole range of skills and interest.

“The Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership is connecting the people living and working in the area with its heritage and landscape in a drive to secure a prosperous future for the communities around the Water of Ken and River Dee, right from their source to the sea.”

The £5M project formally went live in Spring 2018 and will run until Spring 2023. More information can be found here.
