"Castles, Forests, Cliffs and Sea" Dumfries and Galloway by aaaarrgh
Dumfries and Galloway Travel Guide: 379 reviews and 814 photos
Missed by many people as they go straight to Glasgow, Edinburgh and the proper Scottish Highlands, Dumfries and Galloway is quite charming.
This area may be described as the Scottish Lowlands but the lumpy bits are still quite high by English and Welsh standards. Like the Brecon Beacons on steroids.
Galloway includes the most southern point in Scotland. It has historic towns like Dumfries and busy ports such as Stranraer.
I was impressed by the wonderful array of wildlife. You can still find red squirrels living in the forests around Newton Stewart. The Mull of Galloway is quite tremendous for its seabirds and wild coast.

If you are passing though Whithorn, why not check out the 'sensory garden' and grass-roofed shelter next to the Whithorn... more travel advice
If you come to Dumfriesshire by train, or major bus service from England, I expect Dumfries will be your arrival... more travel advice
