Dumfries and Galloway is a really interesting place to visit, since it has so much to see and do. Although much of it is very rural, there are also some great towns to see as well. Dumfries itself is very much worth a visit. Kirkcudbright is also a real gem of a town, with its artistic leanings. Many artists feel that the quality of light in Kirkcudbright is such that it really helps the artistic process. Castle Douglas is a gourmet’s delight, with some fantastic food shops as well as cafés and restaurants serving locally produced foods.
