Castles & Abbeys
Dumfries and Galloway can be enjoyed either on foot, by bicycle or by car, there are some lovely walks around the varied coastline. Beaches are well worth searching out as many offer warm, safe bathing.
If you drive you will enjoy the ambling by-ways and quiet back roads. You will be surprised at the lack of queues and traffic jams.
This area of Scotland is varied, calm and stunning, the climate is warmed by the Gulf Stream and everywhere has the air of being relaxed and friendly.
The natural beauties of the area, the high granite mountains of the Galloway Hills, the Galloway Forest Park, the Solway coast and the tranquil freshwater lochs are all easily accessible.
Offering some of the best cycling in the country set amidst spectacular scenery. The bicycle was invented here by Kirkpatrick MacMillan in 1840 – try the KM Trail. The Cycle Network has over 450 miles (724km) of sign-posted routes on quiet roads and around 40 miles (64km) of off-road paths to test even the most experienced.
