A trip to Galloway

Join Mark Stephen and Euan McIlwraith in the Dumfries and Galloway region as they visit Scotland's first Dark Skies park, meet a willow sculptor and explore the region's rock art.

Mark Stephen and Euan McIlwraith visit Dumfries and Galloway. They find out the history behind Belted Galloways, the cattle synonomous with the area; take a trip through Kirkcudbright on an electric bike, and meet a couple of Russian Orthodox priests who are restoring a castle in the area and running a printing press. They visit Scotland's first Dark Skies park and a willow sculptor whose work has featured in Outlander. Threave Garden is also on their itinerary, not just the garden itself but the bats and osprey who make a home there
