It is a very peaceful area of the cemetery, and I was glad to go and give my respect to those lies that were cut so short The Scottish swell as the Americans.A walk through the nature reserve opposite is lovely too.
The Center , at the Cemetery gate , had a lot of extra details about the victims , the fire & damage to Lockerbie town , plus a local nature & wildlife display .

Beautiful surroundings, the well kept car park and info area is a super starting point, the view looking up to the 5th longest falls in the UK, is stunning!
This was topped up by the wonderful scenery at Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve, especially the views of the waterfall.

The walk to the admission desk and spacious shop (selling a range of local crafts, gifts and plants—apparently, some of which can be seen growing in the garden) is only a very short distance from the car park.
Car park with plenty spaces , family ticket £11 the young lass on reception was very informative, helpful and friendly.

An absolute delight for plant lovers and nature lovers in general.

#6 of 71 Nature & Parks in Dumfries and Galloway
We arrived to find ranger Elizabeth hosting activities for the kids, bird feeders in the morning and nature weaving in the afternoon, both of which we all really enjoyed.
The small shop where you buy your entrance ticket is worth browsing as is the plant sales section and there are some loos across the other side of the car park, which we’ve always found clean and tidy.

So worth a visit, you can park at the fish pond itself, or down the road and walk the beach or road for a few minutes.
Then bring a packed lunch and enjoy the brilliant view from the car park

Mossyard Beach Castle Douglas
#10 of 71 Nature & Parks in Dumfries and Galloway
Clean, sheltered secluded perfect for familys, car park then short walk to the beaches, rocks and tides are to be watched with small children but if your sensible a day spent with a picnic here would be a perfect day
There's an honesty box for the little car park.Then there's just the most gorgeous beach and little island (depending on the tide).If you have good weather it's better than being on the Mediterranean.

A nice walk from the car park through a wooded area brings you out to a rough pebbled beach, to the right is the cave that you could say is a visitors shrine to loved ones who have passed.
Beautiful walk from the (honesty box) car park down the wooded Physgill Glen, with bluebells in flower and the bubbling stream for company.

A great chance for the young to be introduced to these animals and be encouraged to see nature at its best rather than the tabs and mobiles.
We weren't quite sure what to expect at The Galloway Forest Park Red Deer Range, having Googled the area and deciding to have a look on the off-chance.

come out of the car park and head down towards the village and you are greeted with such beauty, the bay on your left, houses/cottages on your right and peaceful tranquility around you.
There is also a nature reserve on an island near Kipford with a coastal road to visit if you get the tides right.

Take their advice - take sensible footwear (eg walking boots), a picnic and use the toilets in the car park (which were clean and cleaned during the day - brilliant!).
An excellent visit, arrived at 10:50 joined a short moving queue for the car park which was well managed by the attendants, the garden was busy but large enough to cope and There were plenty of port a loos.
