Find cottages in Dumfries and GallowayVisit Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland's south west is a hidden gem of tranquil countryside and uncrowded coastlines and has a natural beauty to match anywhere in the UK. It's perfect for exploring the abundant beauty of one of Scotland's most stunning locations where you'll find open landscapes, fantastic heritage, wonderful food and drink and a wealth of activities and attractions.

The 300 square miles that make up the Galloway Forest are a magnet for walkers and mountain bikers and consist of not only miles of forest but also heather clad moors, tranquil valleys and some 250 lochs; the ideal place for outdoor pursuits and great wildlife. In fact Dumfries and Galloway has four National Nature Reserves where you can see a wide variety of bird life, wildflowers and nature in its natural environments. These are stunningly beautiful open landscapes that help preserve our precious and threatened wild places.

Head for the coast if you're looking for quiet sandy beaches, here there are three National Scenic Locations extending from the Mull of Galloway towards Cumbria.

The region is steeped in history, for example Caerlaverock Castle's often turbulent history is reflected in its architecture, with a twin towered gatehouse, moat and battlements, which once made it an imposing sight for invaders but now serves to make it a fantastic family-friendly visitor attraction, with nature trail, children's adventure park and more.

Drumlanrig Castle is similarly impressive, offering late 17th century Renaissance architecture with the addition of 90,000 beautiful acres to explore in the surrounding area. If you fancy something a little more exotic then the Logan Botanic Garden is something of a warm weather oasis. Located on the south-western tip of Scotland, the region receives a Gulf Stream climate which allows the cultivation of many tropical and semi-tropical plants providing a fantastic day out for visitors.

If all that warm weather leaves you seeking refreshment get along to the intriguingly named Cream o' Galloway, a fantastic ice cream visitor centre, which is sure to delight the kids. If you have a sweet tooth then you could also include a visit to The CocoaBean Company chocolate factory and visitor centre!

Strong cultural heritage includes its connections with Robert Burns and the Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries. This award-winning attraction chronicles the poet's life and is perfectly suited for an exploration of other attractions linked to one of Scotland's favourite sons.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Dumfries and Galloway.

Portside Cottage Ref: CC537137
This cosy little, terraced cottage is located right in the heart of the pretty coastal village of Portpatrick, rightly regarded throughout the Dumfries & Galloway region as the ’jewel in the crown’. A particular nice feature of this property is the lovely sun room which is also used as an additional dinning area - a lovely spot to plan the day ahead over a leisurely breakfast. Guests will also appreciate the spacious bathroom and lovely corner bath. Portside Cottage can accommodate up to five guests and is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful corner of Scotland. Portpatrick itself is both charming and unspoilt and on clear days the views over the Irish Sea are spectacular. The village has a putting green and bowling green and fisherman can charter a boat in the bustling little harbour. Portpatrick hosts the annual Lifeboat Week and the Folk Festival and both are usually very popular. This tranquil region enjoys a mild climate due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream evidenced by the lovely palm trees that grow here and the abundance of public gardens with their amazing collection of semi tropical plants. The Logan Botanic Gardens for example, located near Port Logan, has a stunning collection of weird and exotic plants. As a holiday destination Dumfries & Galloway has so much to offer to visitors of all ages and tastes. Walkers, both serious and recreational, for example, are spoilt for choice and may be keen to sample stretches of Scotland’s longest coast to coast walk which has Portpatrick as its starting point. The beach at Killantringan is beautiful and just the ticket for lazy days and beach barbecues. Further inland Laggan Outdoor offers the chance to try the UK’s longest zip wire as well as the increasingly popular mountain balling - just perfect for that adrenalin rush! There are golf courses galore in the region such as the 9 and 18 hole courses in Portpatrick, which have the added bonus of spectacular views. For a day out with a difference why not take the ferry from Cairn Ryan to Belfast and sample its shopping and city amenities.
