Dumfries and Galloway is the land that occupies the south-western corner of Scotland, a region of great scenic variety, historical riches and cultural activity.
Dumfries & Galloway was created in 1975 out of the traditional counties of Dumfriesshire in the east and Wigtownshire in the west, with the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright filling the middle territory, the land that lies between the rivers Nith and Cree.
The journey from the Mull of Galloway (the southernmost tip of Scotland) to where Dumfriesshire meets neighbouring Scottish Borders is one of around 110 miles. There are many scenic walks to explore the ancient castles, great abbeys, impressive waterfalls, lochs and rolling hills to enjoy the undulating rural landscape. The Southern Upland Way, Screel Hill, Annandale Way, Striding Arches and Galloway Forest Park to name but a few.
