Self-catering holiday rentals in Dumfries for your home stay

Dumfries was the county town of the old Dumfriesshire and remains the administrative centre of the Dumfries & Galloway region. Known as the Queen of the South, this pretty market town straddles the river Nith and is famous for its connections to Scotland's bard, Rabbie Burns. To the south west, Wigtown is Scotland's first book town. There are more than a dozen book shops in the town and it is a haven for collectors of rare and second hand books. Some 10km to the south of Dumfries lays Caerlaverock Castle. This stunning triangular 13th century castle is surrounded by a moat and makes for a fine visit. Drumlanrig Castle meanwhile is a great example of Scottish Renaissance architecture with extensive gardens. In late May and early June the Dumfries and Galloway Arts festival combines entertainment, art and music with lots of events for young and old. For lovers of the outdoors, there is fine hiking country and woodland walks and the mountain biking routes at Drumlanrig Castle are first class. The area does not suffer from mass tourism and is appreciative of visitors.
