About the local area

This region of Scotland appears timeless and unsoiled making it the ideal destination for a ’get away from it all’ holiday. Dumfries and Galloway is of course renowned mountain biking country and this can be undertaken at numerous venues.Adrenaline junkies may be interested to know that Dumfries & Galloway is home to the UK’s longest Zip Wire! It is also home to the UK’s largest Forest Park and one of very few places left in the world where it is possible to view the night sky without the distorting effects of night pollution. The climate in this part of Dumfries and Galloway is temperate. This can be discerned by the number of thriving public gardens in the area. Examples include Aldouran Garden with its lovely walk through the glen and the ’jewel in the crown’, the Logan Botanic Gardens, which has a stunning collection of semi tropical plants. Fishermen are extremely well provided for here with numerous venues for river, loch and sea fishing. The Mull of Galloway is Scotland’s most southerly point and on a clear day one can see for miles. Corsewall Point is another spectacular viewpoint and if the weather is kind it is possible to see Ireland, the distinctive Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran. This is a great spot to while away the time watching the ferries sailing between the mouth of Loch Ryan and Ireland. The lighthouse here is quite a feature. Built in 1815 by Robert Stephenson it is now a hotel and restaurant. The area has quiet sandy beaches and sheltered coves in abundance - just perfect for that family picnic. Dumfries and Galloway is also a haven for cyclists with mile after mile of quiet roads many enjoying stunning seascape views.
