Dumfries and Galloway - South West Scotland

The south west corner of Scotland has a beautiful coastline and many picturesque seaside villages on the Solway Firth. There are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, watersports and golf, not to mention numerous gardens to visit thanks to the relatively mild climate. Galloway has Britain's largest forest park which includes woodlands, moorland, mountains and lochs.

The area has lots of historic places of interest including picturesque Threave Castle, Caerlaverock Castle and Sweetheart Abbey. Principal towns include: Dumfries (home to Robert Burns at one time), Kirkcudbright (the Artists' Town), Castle Douglas (the Food Town) and Wigtown (the Book Town).
In Dumfries, Moat Brae (a grand Georgian house dating from 1823) was the inspiration for J.M. Barrie's Neverland (Peter Pan). This is now open to the public as the National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling (admission charge). You can also visit the Neverland Discovery Garden (free of charge), as well as the cafe and a shop.
