Welcome to Dumfries and Galloway Scotland
Many of the main visitor attractions are linked with Robert Burns as he lived in the town from 1791, until his death in 1796.
Coming out of New Abbey, take the coast road to view the typical Solway scene of moors above and sea below and all around lush green. Sandyhills is a reminder that the sands and low cliffs have for long been enjoyed as a resort area. Stroll from Rockcliffe with it's well kept gardens and a path through scrub and open coastal woodlands to Kippford where neat bungalows doze gently in retirement mode amongst the "Riviera" views.
On the Way to Kirkcudbright stop at Balcarry Point (pictured) to digress and do some bird watching.
Kirkcudbright is a cheerful multi-coloured town with a tidal waterfront and an artistic reputation with it's Harbour Gallery, Broughton House and the Stewartry Museum.
Keeping on the back roads will take you through the peaceful pastel painted town of Gatehouse-of-Fleet, past the Gem Rock museum of Creetown and onto Newton Stewart - a substantial town with a local museum and a natural route centre with touring options at every compass point.
Heavy soils made from glacial material dumped and shaped into little whalebacks (drumlins) during the last ice-age. Also a well known area for prehistoric and Christian Sites. To view the most well known head Whithorn, one of the first places in Scotland to practice Christianity. Here is the Whithorn Dig - a major programme of excavation with a visitor centre.
Travel south of Whithorn to the Isle of Whithorn (still on the mainland, don't let the name fool you) where you will find peace amongst the boats and the waves.
In Dunragit, near Stranraer, you can visit Glenwhan Gardens. This is a unique plantsman's 12 acre garden open daily to the public from April to October. It has a licenced tearoom and plant centre.
Continue South to reach the Southernmost tip of Scotland at the Mull of Galloway - a winding road across a rocky neck of land collared with wave beaten cliffs and a lot of sea between you and the Isle of Man.
Also on this coast is the lovely colourful fishing village, Portpatrick - the official starting point of the Southern Upland Way, 212 miles of footpath to Cockburnspath in the East.
Continue to Stranraer the ferry port town imbued with a faintly end of the line windswept air.
As you head back towards Dumfries stop at New Galloway at the top of
scenic Loch Ken and at Castle Douglas, a pleasant town with many home
bakeries and butchers shops.Threave Gardens is nearby with a wide range
of rock, water and shrub features.
