The Dumfries and Galloway region
Visit mysterious castles and fascinating museums one day and enjoy mountain biking through forests the next. Dumfries & Galloway has so much to offer from art galleries, nature reserves, golf courses, botanical gardens, bird watching, watersports and sailing at Loch Ryan, Galloway hills, glorious gardens, music festivals, Dark Sky park, whisky distillery, fabulous local produce to Scotland’s National book town, in Wigtown.
With its connections to the beginning of Scottish Christianity, famous poet Robert Burns and great inventors such as Kirkpatrick Macmillan, Dumfries & Galloway has a fascinating history worth exploring.
A hammer-head peninsula, the Rhinns of Galloway stretches over 25 miles from Corsewall Point down to the Mull of Galloway, the southernmost part of Scotland. With a stunning coastline, numerous small bays and a varied landscape, the Rhinns of Galloway has a natural beauty that will take your breath away.
Nearest bay is Lady bay and the owners favourite walk is from Corsewall lighthouse to Lady bay taking in Dunskirkloch and Caspin iron forts and along the way viewing the local flora and fauna.
Due to the effects of warm Gulf stream Dumfries and Galloway tend to have mild winters ideal for golfing all year round at stunning local courses at Stranraer and Portpatrick. Special tee off prices and PGA available.
Dumfries & Galloway’s second largest town, Stranraer, is probably best known as the ferry port which serves Belfast in Northern Ireland.
Within walking distance of Dundream is a unique lighthouse restaurant atmospheric in summer and winter serving delicious food. Blue Peter hotel in Kirkcolm was voted Pub of the Year in 2007 serving tasty ales.
To the south west, you will find the charming seaside town of Portpatrick. Set around a small bay with pretty pastel coloured houses, take the opportunity to sit down and have some food or drink while you admire the exceptional views out to sea. Portpatrick is incredibly picturesque, yet remains something of a hidden gem. The perfect place to unwind and enjoy the local produce in the many pubs and restaurants.
Further south down the coast lies the charming village of Port Logan. Admire the stunning sunset over the Irish Sea, take part in a spot of fishing or visit nearby Logan Botanic Garden. Fans of the BBC drama Two Thousand Acres of Sky will also find Port Logan to be the setting for the fictional island of Ronansay.
Not to be missed is the Mull of Galloway. With a spectacular unspoilt coastline, beautiful countryside and the most southern lighthouse in Scotland, the Mull of Galloway really is an area highlight
