Castle Douglas Vacation Packages
Castle Douglas, in Dumfries and Galloway, is a place that some 4,000 people call home.
It’s approximately 280 miles (451 kilometers) from London and about 65 miles (105 kilometers) from Glasgow.
Step back in time and get a taste of how the upper class lived long ago by visiting the castles in this region. Perhaps you can conjure up images of the wandering spirits of almost-forgotten residents when you learn dark tales of the Threave Castle or the Cardoness Castle.
Whether you are looking to escape for a while, take a boat ride or enjoy sunlight on the rippling water, the local lake known as Lock Ken is a great place to take a look at. Even if the sun isn’t shining, this calming destination is worth making the time to visit.
Keen nature lovers will be glad to find out that the local city also has a few larger ecological parks which offer beautiful surrounds and remarkable native species. To tour one of the major local nature preserves, drive to Galloway Forest Park.
