Explore the vast estate and enchanting interior of one of Scotland’s finest stately homes. The magnificent 17th-century Drumlanrig Castle boasts over 40 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and offers a range of activities for the whole family. Gardeners (and those who love to spend time in attractive gardens) will find plenty of large houses and gardens open to the public scattered throughout the country. Bird and wildlife lovers are equally spoiled for choice, with a wide range of reserves and protected wetland areas to be explored.

Perhaps the best-known beauty spot in the county (although there are plenty of challenges to this claim) is the Grey Mare’s Tail, a 200ft high waterfall which plunges down a rocky crevasse.

Children – or ice cream lovers should not miss Cream o- Galloway near Gatehouse of Fleet, where ice cream rules. Learn how ice cream is made and then subject your taste buds to testing a wide range of flavours. And afterwards, there are plenty of giant slides, rides, a pedal kart track and scenic nature trails to enjoy and work off the calories. Children will love it.

Visit Kircudbright and Wigtown to see first-hand why the former is known as the artist town and the latter as Scotland’s book town. You won’t be guessing for long!
