Often pop in for a lunch and it is always quite busy. Good food at very reasonable prices. Really good local information available to people for walks and general visitor attractions. Highly recommend.

This is an ideal place for a coffee or a snack, being right on the main carpark. Close to the shops, including Sainsbury and Co-0p and Boots.

Description
The Belted Galloway Visitor Centre offers Newton Stewart and area a facility for both visitors and locals. Situated in the main town car park directly behind the main street, the facility has its own 12 space car park, full disabled access with toilets and it is all on one level. The facility is privately owned and receives no public money so has to operate at a profit, despite this we offer free information and stage community events on an ongoing basis. In addition to Tourist Information the facility also provides heritage, historical and community information by wall boards, video and our "tartan history" on the roof and walls.
