Holidays in Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland touches the Irish Sea and Luce Bay where the hammer head hook of the peninsula named the Rhins of Galloway captures the water of Loch Ryan to the north.  This region meets the northernmost region of England and is the perfect place to elope thanks to the famous town of Gretna Green.

Our Dumfries and Galloway cottages are a great bolthole for star crossed lovers or for anyone wanting to explore the Solway Coast Heritage Trail, the arts and crafts galleries, Galloway Forest Park, local and National Nature Reserves or spend an evening at a Ceilidh.
