The Queen's Way

The Queen's Way is the name given to a 17-mile (27-km) scenic stretch of the A 712 road between New Galloway and Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway. It was designated in 1977 by the Forestry Commission as part of the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations, and a marker stone was unveiled by Princess Anne on the 27th July of that year. The Way passes Clatteringshaws Loch, Bruce's Stone, a Wild Goat Park and the hilltop monument to oriental linguist Alexander Murray (1775 - 1813).
