For more inspiration on how to spend your time here, visit our Scotland Travel Guide.

Places to Visit in Southern Scotland

Dumfries and Galloway is a truly unspoilt corner of Scotland, fringed with deserted beaches - sands where Robert Burns once galloped on horseback, where whisky smugglers came ashore. Romantic ruined castles and other historic monuments dot the landscape. Explore Galloway Forest Park, where you'll find a mix of forest, moorland and lochs, alongside beautiful grazing deers. You can also expect a few surprises, including a town for artists at Kirkcudbright, a book lover's dream at Wigtown and Castle Douglas for foodies! Or opt for the Scottish Borders, brimming with castles, abbeys, stately homes, and museums, offering a fascinating insight into the area's history. Look out for pageants and festivals during your stay, along with Rugby Sevens' tournaments.

Types of Scottish Holidays

Secure your stay at a cottage in South Scotland for the entire family and your furry friends at a dog-friendly cottage in Scotland. For a recuperating escape, choose a country cottage in Scotland. Couples looking for a quiet escape will love a romantic break in Scotland, whilst relaxation can be found at a lodge with a hot tub in Scotland.
