As Quoted "Ignore the Highlands and Islands for once and explore Dumfries and Galloway in the south west instead ! The weather is better, the Solway coast has lots of secluded bays, there are dozens of castles such as Threave and Caerlaverock, and as the region has few main roads, it is much quieter".
