Dumfries and Galloway is an area of Scotland that few people appear to have visited. When mentioning to friends many appear to be besotted by Edinburgh, the festival and maybe the highlands yet I have found this a really beautiful part of the world. The Southern lowlands include many a hill that make you think why they are called lowlands. It is such a rural area with even the major towns being fairly small. Get out there and explore the place

Nothing wrong with Gretna but many people I have spoken to claim to have visited the area when all they have done is stopped off at Gretna for an hour or two before heading north. Head west for best! There is really loads to see around here - go in the summer to check out the great gardens - Logan was a favourite of ours on a past visit, many ruins of castles and even older stone circles
The biggest town is Dumfries yet cannot be called a metropolis.Known, like its football club, as "Queen of the South", Dumfries is an ancient town with a long and turbulent history. The River Nith flows through it with only two roads crossing the river with a few other footbridges - told you it wasn't that big. It has a few restaurants, cafes and traditional Scottish pubs to keep you going and dines out on Robbie (or is that Rabbie) Burns having lived there for a few years. A few museums and monuments reflect this and the town is very proud on that Burns heritage. Camera broke on the visit so have to rely on other photos :(
