The Dumfries and Galloway region
There's a surprise at every turn in Dumfries & Galloway, from discovering inspirational art on a forest walk to getting surprisingly close to red kites and red deer as you explore.
The rugged coastline, sandy beaches and tranquil lochs all look even more stunning as the region basks in glorious sunshine, and the longer days give more time for exploring this wonderful corner of Scotland.
Picture yourself with a loved one, sharing a glorious walk along a quiet beach or sharing a tranquil stroll through a forest. Let the stresses of life melt away as you wander through sweet scented gardens full of exotic plants or cycle along quiet country lanes admiring our glorious scenery.
The Royal Burgh of Annan has a population of approximately 10,000.It is situated on the coast line and is the principal town of Annandale & Eskdale and the third largest in Dumfries & Galloway.
