Welcome

Welcome to the Place-Names of the Galloway Glens project. This project is part of the Heritage Lottery-funded Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership. Over the next few years, we will be surveying the place-names of seven historical parishes in Kirkcudbrightshire, making these names and explanations about their meaning and historical context available through this website, and, in due course, through a published volume of The Survey of Scottish Place-Names. In the course of 2019 and 2020 we hope also to have a number of events exploring and exchanging information on the place-names of the area.
