The Dumfries and Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway is one of the most natural and unspoilt areas of the British Isles. Sitting deep in south west Scotland with an extensive coastline backing on to the Galloway and Border Hills, our region is sometimes known as Scotland in miniature as it embraces every type of scenery to be found across Scotland. Despite this, we are relatively undiscovered and the natural landscape provides the perfect place for inspiring activities where people of all ages and stages can relax and enjoy themselves.

We have a great variety of wildlife both furred and feathered, some of it rare or unusual.

Over the centuries Dumfries and Galloway has provided a stimulus for artists, writers, inventors and engineers. The Artists' town of Kirkcudbright, the Book Town of Wigtown, various museums and galleries all provide a means of exploring these aspects of our wonderful part of the country.

The area is steeped in history, Caerlaverock Castle, Sweetheart Abbey, Threave Castle & Gardens, Drumlanrig Castle and the attractive market town of Castle Douglas provide superb examples of the region's historic heritage

Throughout the year, Dumfries and Galloway stages many events and festivals including, The 'Big Burns Supper', 'Spring Fling' an arts event with venues across the whole region, 'Savour the Flavours' fortnight which is an opportunity to taste your way round the region including Castle Douglas 'Food Town', 'Kirkcudbright Summer Festival' and 'The Wicker Man' music festival


This stretch of coastline is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has several different names: it's known locally as the Colvend Coast, or the 'Secret Coast'. It's also sometimes known as the 'Scottish Riviera', thanks to its Gulf Stream-influenced microclimate. The beaches of Rockcliffe and Kippford are part of Scotland's prettiest stretches of coastline. It is perfect for exploring, with a network of coastal and cliff-top paths giving access to most of the area, including the features of Castle Point, Screel Hill (1200ft), the Motte of Mark and also the Jubilee Path, named to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

Enjoy the variety of birds, flowers and butterflies throughout the year.

Rough Island is a bird sanctuary with nesting oystercatchers and ringed plovers. The island is accessible by foot at low tide.

RSPB Mersehead Reserve, Southwick is also nearby.

Outdoor pursuits are readily available. There is an excellent 18 hole Colvend golf course at Sandyhills, a championship Links course at Southerness with a 9 hole Par 3 course near Kippford.

Forestry Commission '7 Stanes' mountain biking trails are on hand in Dalbeattie & Mabie forests, with many more nearby in the Galloway Forest Park.

Horse-riding and swimming-pools are on offer at Barend (Sandyhills) and Brighouse Bay Holiday Parks.

Water-sport facilities are to be found at Kippford and further afield at Loch Ken (New Galloway)
