What’s on Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets! The unspoilt beauty of this corner of Scotland is a real treasure, with its ancient ruined castles and monuments, deserted beaches and the 300 square miles of forest, moorland and lochs that make up the Galloway Forest Park. Dumfries and Galloway has lots of sporting and outdoor activities to enjoy, including angling, cycling, golfing and walking - as well as a host of hidden attractions. Like the colourful Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the east of the region; Wigtown, Scotland’s National Book Town, in the west; the artists town of Kirkcudbright on the Solway coast; and food heaven in Castle Douglas.
