The Dumfries and Galloway region

Galloway is an ideal destination for an energetic or relaxing break with stunning countryside and Britain's largest forest park. The Galloway Forest Park boasts 300 square miles of natural beauty to be explored and with the park recently receiving the status of being one of only four 'Dark Sky Parks' in the western world. Also in Galloway are 5 of the famous '7 Stanes' mountain biking trails, fishing, hill walking, bird watching, water sports, golfing and plenty of family activities to be enjoyed.

The area has an array of natural heritage sites, gardens and places of historical interest with Castle Douglas having its own picturesque gardens and country house, with historic castle. Threave House and Gardens are located only 1/2 mile outside of the town and Threave Castle is located about 2 miles away - both are well worth a visit.

Castle Douglas

Castle Douglas boasts an array of independently run shops which have a wide selection of local arts and crafts, clothing and footware, hand-made jewellery and gifts galore. There are also plenty of cafes and restaurants to tempt the taste buds if you would like to eat out, many serving local produce. For the sweeter tooth there is a selection of locally made food, from ice cream to hand-made chocolates.

The town has several pubs and even its own brewery for those who like a tipple. All this gives the town its own unique charm, not found in many other high streets nowadays, with something for every visitor.

"First class Apartments"

Stayed here with our 3yo daughter along with our friends and their 2yo daughter. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with home baking. The apartment is very modern with high spec fixtures and fittings. Plenty of space for us and the kids and with the park and swing park directly behind us was great. In short walking distance to castle Douglas main street. Cannot fault anything on our stay here.
