Dumfries and Galloway is a spectacular region that offers so much.
Here’s a wee taster of ideas to inspire you to discover the best of our region...

Fancy stretching your legs you can climb The Merrick, Highest Hill in The Southern Uplands – the 144 mile view between Merrick and Snowdon is the longest line of sight in the British Isles. If this is not adrenaline fuelled enough for you then you can Mountain Bike at one of the 7 Stanes trails. How about something more sedate, why not spend time at Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Eskdalemuir or walk around the Garden of Cosmic Speculation at Portrack.

History buffs can visit Saint Ninians Cave , the Birth place of Christianity in Scotland, visit Drumlanrig Castle or catch the Boat across to Threave Castle. How about some more recent history? You could visit the Devils Porridge Exhibition near Annan. To sustain you on your adventures there’s always a pit stop at the Moffat Toffee Shop or have an Ice Cream at the Cream O’Galloway or maybe have a pint of Galloway Gold at Sulwath Brewery. Fancy something stronger then you can enjoy a dram at Annan-dale Distillery, recently reopened after a 90 year slumber.

For the nature lover there are the Southern Uplands, Galloway Forest, coastal walks and many friendly villages to explore. You can visit WWT Caerlaverock, the best place in the UK to go birding in winter, go on a nocturnal Wildlife tour, or just look up at the stars at night, Dumfries & Galloway is one of the best places in the UK to stargaze.

Finally, how about some fun, Dumfries and Galloway style? You can follow the Spring Fling Trail, have a flutter at the Moffat Sheep Races, get your groove on at the Wickerman Festival or take part in the World Flounder Tramping Championships at Palnackie.
A great place to work, enjoy, live and love
