Make The Most Of Your Stay In Dumfries & Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway, home of the Wickerman Festival, lies at the heart of southern Scotland and has a great deal to offer anyone looking for a holiday experience to remember.

Often overlooked by visitors to Scotland in favour of the Highlands and Islands, Dumfries and Galloway is ‘Scotland in miniature’ but with a softer feel and completely unspoilt. There are few finer habitats in the world to enjoy the ‘great outdoors’ with some of the best mountain biking, walking, cycling and country sports to be found anywhere in the UK.

For those seeking a more sedate holiday, Dumfries and Galloway is a land steeped in history and culture which can be discovered at a leisurely pace. With amazing natural backdrops it is little wonder that Dumfries and Galloway is home to some of Scotland’s most iconic outdoor events, such as the Wickerman Festival.
