Craigview occupies level ground on the west side of a broadleaf woodland about 3 miles west of Castle Douglas. The main A75 trunk route is just five minutes to the south giving easy access to Galloway and Carlisle.
Craigview was planted with conifers about ten years ago. It was not maintained and most of the trees failed with the result that it is now primarily unimproved grassland punctuated with a few small thickets of young spruce. The trees were planted without grant aid and there is no obligation regarding their establishment. There are some wonderful panoramic views to the north-west of the Galloway Hills.
Thanks to the adjacent woodland and the lack of disturbance the area is rich in wildlife. Both red and roe deer are present, as are badgers, foxes and stoats. Kites, sparrow-hawks and buzzards are also resident along with a variety of songsters and moorland birds in the fields and woods adjacent.
The amenity and conservation potential of Craigview will be immediately evident to any who view.
If It Were Mine
Craigview presents a wonderful blank canvas on which to create a rich habitat of new native woodland and shrubs in conjunction with a superb locus for camping and recreation. I’m not going to say more – paint your own picture of what you might do here!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
