If you turn left when you’ve crossed the border from England you come to Dumfries and Galloway, a marvellous corner of Scotland offering a host of attractions. You come first to Dumfriesshire and its county town Dumfries, straddling the famous fishing river the Nith.

So Much to See and Do
To the south is the Solway Firth, famous as a haven for wetland birds, while the area is also well known as a stopping off point for migrating geese. There are many lovely destinations to visit, such as Sweetheart Abbey and Caerlaverock Castle and, near Thornhill, there is Drumlanrig Castle. The area has several superb mountain biking trails and in the north of the county the Southern Upland Way provides excellent walking.
