The Dumfries and Galloway region
Located in the south west corner of Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway is one of the UK's best kept secrets. Easily accesible from the north of England and Scotland's central belt, it is an unspoilt haven of lovely countryside with its famous rolling hills, pretty towns and fabulous beaches. It might be quiet but is not short of events and cultural activities.
Dumfries and Galloway is surprisingly balmy due to warm currents from the Gulf Stream and you will even find palm trees around the far western coast. There is a wealth of gardens to visit and wildlife to spot from red squirrels to red kite
An area of great historic interest, Dumfries and Galloway has numerous castles, ruined abbeys and museums on offer.
Other activities include pony trekking, canoeing, nature trails, quad biking, deer park, gem museum, ice-skating.
It is no coincidence that so many artists have chosen Kirkcudbright as their place of residence. Everywhere you turn there is a view worthy of painting and the town has changed little in the past 200 years so retains much of its original charm. Rattra Cottage is in a wonderful location right in the centre of Kirkcudbright within walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In the High Street itself you will find galleries, craftshops, artists studios, a close leading to the marina and riverside views. There is also a 16th century castle just around the corner opposite the harbour. A range of facilities are available in the town such as a swimming pool and golf course and on the outskirts of town there is even a wildlife conservation park. A little further afield there are several beautiful beaches and many activities to keep visitors busy whatever the weather.
Every year Kirkcudbright hosts a number of events including a jazz festival, a Children's Festiival and an Arts and Crafts Trail Throughout the summer there are regular Historical Walks and Scottish Nights and the season culminates with a spectacular Tattoo.
