Newton Stewart is a picturesque market town founded in the mid 17th Century by William Stewart, youngest son of the 2nd Earl of Galloway. The "New Town of Stewart" was granted Burgh status by charter from King Charles II allowing a weekly market and two annual fairs to be held. Sited on the banks of the River Cree, the town has prospered and may be regarded as the gateway to the Galloway Hills. Newton Stewart offers hillwalking with large unspoiled areas of great natural beauty and tranquility. Ornithologists flock to the area together with the geese and other migrant birds during the winter and spring. Trails, developed by Forest Enterprise, for walkers and cyclists and unlimited coastal pathways complete the picture.
