Join us on this tour as we head up to Scotland, cross the border in the west and let everything go and discover Dumfries & Galloway. We explore this parts of this beautiful part of lowland Scotland, with an undulating coastline of rocky shoreline and sandy beaches, whilst inland, there are acres of forest and green spaces.

Welcome to Dumfries & Galloway © Walter Baxter :: Geograph Britain ...

Day 1: Our door to door service makes for a relaxed departure, after which we make our way to Dumfries arriving late afternoon at the Cairndale Hotel, for our 4 night stay.

Day 2: This morning we drive to the heart of the Galloway Forest Park for a morning visit to the Clatteringshaws Visitor Centre. The visitor centre overlooks tranquil Clatteringshaws Loch. On a clear day, look out for the mighty Merrick, highest hill in the Southern Uplands. Soak up the stunning views or meander beside the loch to the historic Bruce's Stone. Later we head to the Threave Garden & House. Threave’s wonderful garden has been created over the years by students of the Trust’s School of Heritage Gardening – and is a fine example of landscaped beauty. At the centre stands Threave House, designed in the Scottish Baronial style in 1871 for the Gordon family. Many of its rooms are displayed as they were in the 1930s.

Day 3: This morning we enjoy a scenic journey as we head for the harbour town of Kirkcudbright, with its colourful blend of medieval, Georgian and Victorian buildings. The town was a magnet for Scottish artists in the late 19th century, and is now known as The Artists' Town, with some lovely artists’ galleries and studios. We return for the afternoon at leisure to explore Dumfries, which is home to the Robert Burns Centre located in the town’s 18th century watermill (Entry not Included).

Day 4: Today we will take you for a lovely scenic drive through the Dumfries and Galloway countryside to the seaside town of Ayr. The Royal Burgh of Ayr is situated on the Firth of Clyde and is the largest coastal town in South Ayrshire. Later we continue to Dumfries House, one of Britain's most beautiful stately homes. Set in 2,000 acres of land, this stunning estate and 18th-century house with its unrivalled collection of original furniture has something for everyone.

Day 5: After breakfast sadly, we must leave to begin our homeward journey, where our door to door service will be waiting to take you home upon arrival.
