The UNESCO Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere

UNESCO Galloway and South Ayrshire Biosphere
Biosphere are places with World Class environments that are designated by the UNESCO to promote and demonstrate a balanced relationship between people and nature.

Our UNESCO Biosphere designation which was a first for Scotland, is recognition of the fantastic array of landscapes, wildlife, cultural heritage and learning opportunities that SW Scotland offers for communities, businesses and visitors to experience and celebrate in a sustainable way.

The Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere has the Galloway Hills at its core and a rich and diverse landscape, rivers and lochs and a fabulous rugged coastline, it covers about 5000 square kilometres, and Brookford B & B are a Proud Supporter of it.
