Galloway Bullock

An area of SW Scotland now forming part of Dumfries and Galloway, Galloway until 1974 comprised the former counties of Wigtownshire and Kirkcudbrightshire stretching northwards from the Solway Firth into the Galloway Hills and including the 'hammerhead' shaped Rhins of Galloway. Its much forested uplands are a source of hydro-electric power and its lowlands are noted for farming, in particular dairy produce and cattle.
