Many visitors from England think visiting Scotland is Glasgow and the Highlands and drive right past the Dumfriesshire turn off en route to other parts of Scotland. They are missing some of Scotland’s most beautiful unspoilt countryside and coastline with lovely towns and villages to explore. This of course is a bonus for walkers, cyclists and lovers of outdoor pursuits who can relish in the quieter country roads. Explore by bicycle or on foot you’ll discover sandy beaches, miles and miles of forest trails, gentle slopes or rugged hikes to the top of hills and mountains with the reward of spectacular views.
Dumfries is the largest town in the county and the headquarters for the whole of the Dumfries and Galloway region. This lovely riverside town nestles on the banks of the River Nith, and is famous for its connection with the famous poet Robert Burns who spent much of his adult life there. There are many places to visit in Dumfries which celebrate their historical connections with him. Dumfries also has excellent leisure facilities such as the Ice Bowl, the largest ice rink in the area and fairly new DG One leisure centre with swimming pool featuring the amazing swirling river flumes, sports courts, health and fitness facilities and regular live theatre shows.
Other attractions in the area include Mabie Farm Park an excellent family attraction that has steadily developed over the years. It has all weather play facilities, slides, rides, quad bikes, paddle boats, feed the animals, cafe, gift shop and much more! On the site of the former RAF Dumfries base, there’s the Aviation Museum – see the 1940′s shop, an air shelter and exhibits are not roped off so you can really see them properly and some planes you can actually go inside – not just a wee boys dream.
So make that all important turn into Dumfriesshire and you’ll find more than just a base to explore from. A warm welcome with quality cottages, lodges and caravans in beautiful locations!
