Dumfries and Galloway Holiday Cottages

Dumfries and Galloway is on the southwest coast of Scotland. It is right on the border with England, and Carlisle is the nearest English city. Dumfries and Galloway is home to many archaeological sites and ruins. There is also a wide selection of picturesque towns and villages for your family to explore. Scotland starts here.

Holidays in Dumfries & Galloway

Historical sites

Historical sites in Dumfries and Galloway vary from prehistoric forts, tombs and stone circles to dominating castles and ruins. Overlooking Wigtown Bay are Carin Holy one and Cairn Holy two. These ancient burial sites are chambers for important figures in pre-history Scotland around 4000 BC. There are also many castles in the area, one of the most famous being Caerlaverock Castle, only a short drive from Dumfries. The English often besieged this castle, and there is a siege warfare exhibition complete with reconstructions of siege engines. Discover these ancient sites on a family day out, resting in your ideal holiday cottage at the end of the day. Uncover the finest Dumfries and Galloway holiday deals at the last-minute for a real spur-of-the-moment adventure.

Walking

Walking in Dumfries and Galloway can be a challenging hike or a stroll. Exploring the Cairnsmore of Fleet Nature Reserve is a joy, with lochs, mountains and a viaduct. This hiking can be challenging at points. However, the hike is worth it as the views of the nature reserve are incredible. If you don't fancy a hike or have young children, you may want to choose a more relaxing walk. The Galloway Faerie trail near Ringford is ideal for your family and caters to all ages. Explore the enchanted grounds and help solve the mystery of the missing faerie dust with your young ones. After a day's walking, you'll want a soothing rest, and many of our cottages come with hot tubs so you can soak your muscles, ready for the next day's adventures.
