The Galloway Pie is from The Little Bakery, Dumfries and is the first Galloway Cattle Society accredited product developed in connection with Real Galloway Beef quality assurance scheme.
Thousands of visitors are expect to descend on the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle for this years Galloway Country Fair during August 17-18.
