Carrick is a very welcoming wood, with facilities to help you enjoy its unique atmosphere even more. These facilities allow you to picnic in the open air, to relax beside its tranquil lochs and view its remote hills.
The forest is home to the scarce Black Grouse, Roe Deer, Badgers, and many different types of woodland birds. The wild and secluded moorlands beyond the forest are the haunt of Golden Eagles, Red Deer and Feral Goats.
Carrick is also part of The Galloway Forest Park. Straiton is the nearest town or village.
