Dumfries & Galloway
If you want peace and tranquillity amidst the breath taking scenery of Lowland Scotland, Dumfries & Galloway is the perfect location for UK holidays. Little wonder that so many writers and artists were inspired by this area - there is so much to see and do amidst the rolling hills and vast forests. For wildlife lovers, look out for red squirrels, deer, red kites and osprey, for stunning photograph opportunities; or go birdwatching on the Mull of Galloway Nature Reserve, with amazing views all around. For something more adventurous how about mountain biking, windsurfing or yachting, or an energetic walk? If you’re after some history and culture, visit the Renaissance splendour of Drumlanrig Castle with its country park and Victorian gardens; or the late 13th century ruin of Sweetheart Abbey. Admire the landscape art of the red sandstone Striding Arches set on the hilltops near Cairnhead, or browse the many bookshops in Wigtown (Scotland’s book town). And for night owls, there’s the opportunity to do some serious stargazing in Galloway Forest Park.
