Dumfries and Galloway Self-catering Guide

galloway selfcatering

Visit the south west of Scotland and book a quality self-catering holiday in Dumfriesshire, Galloway, Lanarkshire or Ayrshire. This is a relatively undiscovered corner of Scotland and as such is quieter and less touristy then other areas. It is that unspoilt quality that draws people back year after year - once you have discovered Galloway self-catering then you will no doubt come back too! There are glorious beaches and tranquil countryside to explore in this friendly part of Scotland.

It is also home to Wigtown (Scotland's Book Town) and Castle Douglas which is Scotland's Food Town. Whilst these tags are in effect a marketing hook from Visit Scotland the fact remains that Wigtown has lots of fascinating second-hand bookshops and Castle Douglas has some excellent delis and restaurants so both deserve their accolades. Dumfries and Galloway produces some excellent local food - the lush pastures are perfect for cows so top quality ice-cream and cheese are produced locally. Also Kirkudbright has a producer of excellent pates and terrines which are sold throughout the UK. Seafood and fish are caught in the Solway Firth and you can buy them straight off the boats and take the freshest fish back to your holiday cottage for supper!

There is a wonderful choice of high quality self catering accommodation in Galloway, Ayrshire and Dumfries-shire. You can choose from a range of excellent rental properties in Galloway, some with extra facilities such as self-catering with an indoor swimming pool or a holiday cottage with tennis court. Renting a cottage with a swimming pool (indoor or outdoor) or a holiday house with a tennis court provides an extra element to your holiday and a swimming pool or tennis court can entertain children and teenagers for hours - a relaxing holiday for all! Short breaks, romantic weekends or family holidays can all be catered for when you choose a luxury Scottish self catering holiday in Galloway. Fishing holidays in Dumfries and Galloway are popular as the hill lochs are magical places to catch a brown trout.

The selection of Scottish cottage holidays in the south west is wonderful and as you book direct with the owner you will be sure of a great price. There is castle accommodation, houses by the sea to hire, lodges in the Galloway countryside, big holiday homes sleeping over 20, romantic honeymoon cottages for two - Galloway has a huge selection of gorgeous holiday cottages to hire. Exploring Scotland from a luxury self catering cottage (by car, foot, bicylce or horse-back) will give you a memorable holiday - the fabulous unspoilt beaches, hills and lochs of the south west Scotland are just perfect.
