Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns, moved to Dumfries and Galloway largely because of its inspirational landscape. He even described Ellisland Farm where he lived as 'the poet's choice'. The region is steeped in artistic heritage, hosting the annual book festival at Wigtown - which, is believed to have the highest number of bookshops per capita in the UK. A vast array of museums, galleries and historic locations are dotted across the region.
The Great OutdoorsAs the home of the bicycle, the rich rural landscape is a popular attraction for both mountain bikers and those more inclined towards a gentle tour of the countryside. An annual walking festival is established in the Dumfriesshire calendar, with some of the finest walks offering spectacular views across the valley of Glentrool. The long coastline, rich lochs and rivers are renowned within the angling fraternity, while many of the 29 golf courses in the region boast breathtaking views across the seas and lochs. In fact, the countryside is hard to beat anywhere in Europe, with endangered species and rare birds inhabiting this colourful land.
