Galloway-House, p.602.

[Gazetteer of Scotland Contents]

   GALLOWAY-HOUSE, the family-seat of the Earls of Galloway on the coast of Sorbie parish, in Wigtonshire. It was built about 80 years ago [1770]; and though not remarkable for architectural magnificence, ” forms part of a landscape truly beautiful and grand. Garlieston bay is on the north; and Rigg, or Hunter’s bay, is on the south of it. From its windows are seen the richest fields; an indented coast, adorned with growing improvements; a cluster of isles, and the lofty mountains of Cumberland and Man, appearing at a proper distance. The principal rooms are spacious, and the library is stored with many thousand valuable volumes.”
