Drumlanrig Castle Full review
Travel picture of Drumlanrig Castle
avatarpicture alveraward THE BEST REVIEW
Awesome Experience : Great day out set in the beautiful countryside. Have been a few times now & is a great day out for all ages. Great outdoor play park with picnic benches, massive estate to explore with walks dotted all around. Have yet to take the castle tour but will be back to do so as the kids love it here. Also have music festivals etc on during the summer months.
Drumlanrig Castle is situated on the Queensberry Estate in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The c... [..]

Going Deep into the hillside: Set in the picturesque village of Wanlockhead, Museum of Lead Mining offers visitors an incredible experience of going underground and explore the 18th-century lead mine. The miner's cottages retell the stories of the people that once lived there. The visitor's centre has a fine collection of beautiful rocks, minerals, and mining and other artefacts.

Grey Mare's Tail Waterfall Full review

avatarpicture samantharide THE BEST REVIEW
Wonderful Views : Great walk with stunning views. It was a four hour round trip due to the fact we are not professional walkers and we went when there was deep snow which didn't help. I would recommend going when it is warmer in the spring or summer. Other than that it was an amazing experience and I would totally do it again.

Sweetheart Abbey Full review

avatarpicture eastonboyer THE BEST REVIEW
Brilliant Place : Thanks to less than brilliant road signage in Dumfries I stumbled across New Abbey on the Solway Firth Tourist Route. Unfortunately, the custodian was on the point of locking the gate at the end of the day and wasn't amenable to me 'just having a quick look around before you close'.
The Abbey of Dulce Cor, better known as Sweetheart Abbey , or New Abbey Pow, was a Cistercian mon... [..]

Broughton House & Garden Full review

avatarpicture joedalton THE BEST REVIEW
Fascinating artworks and wonderful garden: Packed to the rafters with masterpieces of art, sculptures, paintings and photographs, the house is a must-visit for art connoisseurs. Nestled deep in the heart of Kirkcudbright, the house is a living museum dedicated to the life and work of 'Glasgow Boy' artist E A Hornel. The surrounding Japanese-Inspired garden is a feast for eyes.

Market Cross Full review
avatarpicture spiritaway THE BEST REVIEW
Would happily recommend to anyone: We live in Holywell and eat here with our daughter a couple of times a month. The food is always lovely. The prices are crazy low both for food and drinks. The staff is always friendly and the place has a nice atmosphere.

Beautiful Seaside town: Set against the backdrop of beautiful cliffs by a small bay, Portpatrick is a seaside town with beautiful views. Sea angling offers a remarkable experience, so does the stroll along the cliffs in a tranquil ambience. The town has some good eateries offering delicious food.

Glenluce Abbey Full review
Travel picture of Glenluce Abbey
avatarpicture alexalittl THE BEST REVIEW
Decent Place : These ruins have a few interesting signs and notices around to provide a bit of history and context. There is plenty of parking, and the terrain is simple to navigate. It's also dog-friendly. Don't plan your day around a visit here as there is not a lot to do or see, but if in the area it's a nice hour pastime.
Glenluce Abbey, near to Glenluce, Scotland, was a Cistercian monastery called also Abbey of Luce ... [..]
