The Lamachan area lies approximately 5km north east of Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway.

We are developing a land management plan for Lamachan that details our proposals for management of the area over the next ten years. Draft versions of the plan will be published here and we invite comments and feedback from the public on the proposals.
