Galloway Forest Park is a honeypot for explorers, populated by elusive species such as red deer, red squirrels and pine martins. Don your walking boots or hire bikes and adventure to your heart’s content, pausing for picnics with a view on the shores of Loch Doon, or bring your torches and blankets ready to stargaze at Clatteringshaws. Adventurous types will be enthused by the hiking opportunities amongst the Galloway hills, especially if you are up to the challenge of scaling the imposing heights of the majestic Merrick, the highest summit in Southern Scotland. For those who prefer a gentle pace, there are ample opportunities for browsing the pretty streets of Castle Douglas, and you can hop on board a small boat to cross the River Dee, disembarking to investigate the 14th-century Threave Castle, before retreating for a quiet evening in our Scotland holiday cottages.
Dumfries and Galloway host a whole calendar of annual events celebrating art, literature, food and music, kicking off with Big Burns Night Supper and rounding off with Hogmanay to see in the new year. Enjoy all of this and then retreat to a cosy working farm cottage.
