Dumfries and Galloway is situated in the stunning Scottish lowlands. The area boasts rocky coastlines, sandy beaches and acres upon acres of forest and green spaces – hence why the area is so popular with outdoor lovers!
Maybe you’re looking for some high adrenaline fun, which can be found at the Galloway Activity Centre in Castle Douglas, with both land and water based activities for you to try. Or maybe you’d prefer a peaceful stroll along one of the beautiful beaches in Dalbeattie (some even call it the Costa del Solway!) Either way, we can take care of the driving so you can enjoy the beautiful south west Scottish scenery.
