Dumfries is a pleasant town to visit whilst on your UK holidays so spend some time here soaking up the medieval history. Admire the painted houses and lovely red sandstone buildings; take in the  central Midsteeple, formerly used as a meeting place, courtroom and prison. Literature lovers can find out about Robert Burns, who spent the last five years of his life here. There’s a Burns Heritage Trail and a Robert Burns Centre, and his statue overlooks the high street with its collection of well known and independent shops. Swim a few lengths in the town’s pool, stroll around the parks, and if it’s the right time of year enjoy the colourful vibe of the annual Arts Festival. Surrounded by the most picturesque scenery, Dumfries makes for a great day out in this stunning part of Scotland.
