The Byre description

Barncrosh nestles in the rolling Galloway Hills and is the gateway to Galloway where the very best of Scotland’s countryside is on your doorstep, from fine forests and lochs, to sandy beaches and a spectacular coastline. There are 110 acres of natural grounds and woodland for you to enjoy; red kites have made their nests on site, and guests should be able to see them everyday. There are also deers and some free roaming llamas.
Gardens here are special, with gems such as nearby Threave and the Logan Botanic Gardens near Stranraer. Palm trees and many other exotic plants thrive under the warming influence of the Gulf Stream.
The Galloway Forest Park is close by with an abundance of wildlife including a red deer range, wild goat park and red squirrel feeding stations. Buzzards are a common sight and you may be lucky enough to see golden eagles and red kites too. The park has been awarded status as the first Dark Sky Park in the UK. With thousands of stars to look at, you are spoilt for choice.
Dumfries and Galloway offers many picturesque towns and villages to explore. Castle Douglas, the food town is only 4 miles away with galleries, independent shops, cafes and pubs. Kirkcudbright, 5 miles, locally known as the artists town, offers many festivals throughout the year, including Scottish nights, classic car rallies, historic walks, a medieval fayre, a jazz festival and a spectacular Tattoo, as well as a good selection of pubs and restaurants. Wigtown, known as the book town, is within easy reach, as is the sleepy coastal town of Garlieston with a small harbour at one end of town, and a lovely beach at the other.
With a large variety of outdoor pursuits on offer, including fishing, horse riding, cycling, golf and water sports, the whole family will be well catered for. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
