Dumfries & Galloway – Soak Up the Views


Prepare for an adventure in Dumfries & Galloway, a naturally inspiring region of contrasting landscapes where green hills and vast forests collide with golden beaches along 200 miles of coastline. Explore its sea cliffs and sandy coves then head inland to discover 300 square miles of the stunning Galloway Forest Park.

Art and nature are in perfect harmony in Dumfries & Galloway. Near Moniaive you’ll be inspired by both, as Andy Goldsworthy’s red sandstone Striding Arches blend in with the beautiful countryside. Then invade the triangular shaped Caerlaverock Castle and once you’ve conquered that, relax with a drink at The Globe Inn, a local Dumfries haunt of Robert Burns.
