Hidden treasures in Dumfries and Galloway
This area of Britain, in Braveheart country, is bursting with a wealth of beautiful countryside, colourful towns, historical sights, culinary delights and much more…
Eat Fish and Chips at Kirkcudbright Harbour. This place has prettiness by the bucketload and we say it is therefore quintessentially British.
Climb the Merrick
The highest hill in the Southern Uplands, and get a 144 mile view to Mount Snowdon. Don’t forget your binoculars.
Witness the majesty…
of a native population of red kites soaring in the skies above. Even catch close, first-hand experience as they swoop in for their dinners at Billymack Hill Farm.
Explore the house and grounds of Moat Brae which inspired Peter Pan.

Check out St. Ninian’s Cave, Scotland’s first saint’s “pad” now place of pilgrimage.
