Glen Trool is located in Galloway, about ten miles north of the attractive little town of Newton Stewart. It is a deservedly popular beauty spot in mainly lovely high hill country. It is pleasantly approached from Newton Stewart by following the road, which runs close by the river Cree, as far as Bargrennan. Fork right here and another right turn across the Minnoch Water brings a first glimpse of Loch Trool in its magnificent setting of heather clad hills. Galloway Forest Park North (Explorer Maps).
