Dumfries

Vacations are all about taking it easy, although it's always nice to see some sights as well! Rest assured, that won't be a problem in Dumfries.

The national capital of Edinburgh is 65 miles north of Dumfries, while Lochmaben lies 7 miles to the northeast.

Treat the kids with a visit to the Ellisland Farm, a terrific attraction that's sure to bring out some grins.

Whether you're meeting a few friends or just having a quick bite to eat in the peaceful surroundings, the Caerlaverock Wetland Centre is a terrific place to take a break.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the favored exhibition spaces nearby. The Dumfries Museum and the Robert Burns Centre offer a range of displays and collections that are sure to capture your interest. Equally rewarding are the John Paul Jones Museum and National Museum of Costume.

Take a step back in time with a trip to Shambellie House or the Robert Burns Statue, just a couple of the interesting historic sites here. When it comes to bygone times, there's always more to discover. The John Paul Jones Cottage Museum and Morton Castle are two more great places to check out.

There is a rich history that can be understood throughout the grounds of the area's castles. You don't need to be a medieval maiden to be excited by Caerlaverock Castle.

Treat yourself to a quiet moment in the still surroundings of Sweetheart Abbey and Ruthwell Church.

If you want to learn more about the history of this community, allow time to visit some of its special symbolic sculptures and memorials, such as the Ruthwell Cross and New Abbey Corn Mill. Devorgilla Bridge and Burns' mausoleum are also worth taking a look at.

7stanes - Mabie is a good destination to head to if you enjoy shopping or you're after a bite to eat.

Take a few tips from the locals and aim for a hole in one at the Dumfries and Galloway Golf Club. If you can squeeze in one more game, you could mix things up with a visit to the Dumfries and County Golf Club.
