Stay on a working farm - in a luxurious cottage

Dumfries and Galloway is Scotland's hidden gem! It has everything you might want on a holiday - beaches, beautiful coastlines, hills, forests, wildlife, historic sites, gardens, visitor attractions, yet remains relatively undiscovered. Dumfries-shire also reputed to be the sunniest area of Scotland and has Scotland's most southerly stretch of coastline.

The area is a great one for nature lovers having a range of different habitats including coastal, river, farmland, mountains, moors, lochs and woodlands. There are a number of reserves within an hour including Mersehead, and Caerlaverock, both of which have populations of the rare natterjack toad. There are local opportunities of seeing nesting ospreys, red kites feeding and otters. Winter is particularly good for birdwatching and Caerlaverock has been named by the BBC Wildlife Magazine as the first of its 10 best places in the UK for winter birdwatching.

Golf is well catered for and fishing. For those who like historic sites there are a number of ruined abbeys, castles, historic round houses and houses - including Kirkennan (less than an hour) itself where the deeds go back to 1647.
