Cycling
Dumfries and Galloway is famed for its stunning landscapes and coastline and travelling by bicycle is the ideal way to explore the region. So bring your bicycle, or hire one while you're here, and enjoy a thoroughly invigorating break! There are lots of off-road trails guaranteed to get your pulse racing and miles and miles of quiet country roads that will take you to wonderful pubs, historic sites and bustling market towns. You'll even find the only museum in Scotland totally devoted to the history of cycling: Drumlanrig Castle. See the magnificent collection of bikes, dating from the 19th century to the present day.

Museums and Visitor Centres
From gems the world over to runaway brides and the National Museum of Costume.

Dumfries & Galloway - A Region Steeped in History
From stone circles and chambered cairns over four millennia old, to the arrival of Christianity in Scotland, to Medieval castles and battles for Scottish independence. Historic sites hold a special attraction for many people, appearing frozen in time, offering a chance to glimpse how life used to be, through visiting what remains of the grand architecture of yesterday. Use your imagination to raise the ruins of castles and abbeys to their previous glory and picture the scenes of sieges, battles and everyday life whilst walking amidst their fallen walls. Or visit a re-enactment on a summer's day and see the ancient battles played out before you with authentic dress, weapons and craftsmanship on display.

Golf
Play an enjoyable round at Thornhill, where Andrew Coltart honed his skills, or try the challenge of the famous Solway links course at Southerness, designed by Mackenzie Ross in 1947. Tee off at Stranraer, the last course to be designed by James Braid or admire the views from Colvend or Wigtownshire County. With a choice of 32 courses, eighteen of them 18-hole and fourteen 9-hole, you can play serious golf or just a few rounds of holiday golf to your heart's content. Off the course, you'll find a warm welcome in the clubhouse or the local pubs and restaurants.

Walks
The Southern Upland Way is Scotland's longest walk. It stretches west to east from Portpatrick's romantic seascapes over the Mull of Galloway to the dramatic North Sea cliffs at Cocksburnspath. Tracking through some of Scotland's most beautiful and varied scenery, it offers an unforgettable holiday experience for serious walkers and weekend visitors alike.

Wildlife
Explore the Galloway Forest Park, the largest forest park in Britain, covering over 300 square miles of spectacular forest, moorland and lochs rising towards the rugged grandeur of the granite mountains. The Galloway Forest Park is teeming with wildlife, with a red deer range, wild goat park and red squirrel feeding stations increasing your chances of getting up close to nature. Birds of prey also make the forest their home, with buzzards a common sight, golden eagles more elusive and rare red kites, successfully introduced to the region in 2001.

Gardens
Dumfries and Galloway has a wide range of beautiful gardens, both large and small, along with a wide range of specialist nurseries which, together, provide a mecca for the garden lover. Blessed by the mild oceanic climate, a product of the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, rhododendrons and azaleas are the pride of many gardens within the region.
