The South West of Scotland has something for everyone. From forest getaways to family holidays, adventure escapes and road trips. Visit the famous Gretna Green, the spectacular Dumfries House, or the magical Galloway Forest Park.
With 200 miles of stunning coastline, rolling hills and beautiful forests, there is no better place to escape to. Explore on two feet or on two wheels; whether you prefer an exhilarating bike ride or a tranquil forest walk, you will find it here. The area is rich in history: it was here, in 1307, that Robert the Bruce launched his campaign to free Scotland.
Thanks to the stunning landscapes, the area is a mecca for golfers, cyclists, walkers, and sea and game anglers.If you're a culture vulture, you'll also find some real hidden gems here: a colourful Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the east of the region, a feast for the eye in Kirkcudbright Artists' Town and a real treat for the taste buds in nearby Castle Douglas, a well-known Food Town.
During your visit, get to know the locals. If you're visiting in January, find a local Burns Supper on Burns Night for a dinner of haggis, neeps and tatties; sample some delicious oysters at Stranraer Oyster Festival; or pick up a great read at the Wigtown Book Festival.
