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.

Barley Cottage Ref: CC537157
From the outside this lovely mid terraced cottage looks tiny, but open the door, step in and be amazed! The view from the sitting room and exterior balcony is addictive whatever the season. Patience may be rewarded with glimpses of sparling, salmon and red squirrel and the occasional dart of a kingfisher. The cottage forms part of what was originally the Newton Stewart Brewery of William Thomas Solomon possibly dating back to the 1700’s and overlooks the lovely River Cree, Brewery Pool and Mill Island. The Cree is a spate river like the other Galloway rivers and fishes best after a good fall of rain. It rises in Loch Moan and meanders through moorland and forest before entering the sea near Newton Stewart. The River Cree with its tributaries, the Minnoch, the Trool, the Penkiln and the Palnure drains the south west flanks of the ’Range of the Awful Hand’, the labyrinthine range of mountains and lochs, bogs,burns and crags, rising at its highest to The Merrick (2764ft above sea level), 12 miles to the north and visible from Newton Stewart.
