Galloway,

region, Dumfries and Galloway, SW Scotland. It formerly was divided between the now abolished counties of Wigtownshire and Kirkcudbrightshire. The Rhinns, or Rinns, of Galloway is a rocky double peninsula that juts into the North Channel of the Irish Sea; its southern extremity is called the Mull of Galloway and is the southernmost point in Scotland. The black, hornless Galloway cattle have long been bred in this region. Dairying is the primary industry. The region has been suggested as a likely site for the kingdom of Rheged (A.D. 6th–7th cent.).
