There are few countries in the world whose landscape, historical monuments, and cultural sites combine to create the type of magical atmosphere that can be found in Scotland, and a stay at a local hotel in the southern region of Dumfries and Galloway will provide visitors with the unique chance to experience some of the country’s fascinating past and natural splendour. From the 13th century Cistercian abbeys such as Glenluce Abbey, to the Robert Burns Centre, home to some of the bard’s great manuscripts, a trip to this region is bound to be an enthralling adventure for all visitors.
Visit Greyfriars Episcopal Church in Kirkcudbright
Established in the 16th Century the parish of Kirkcudbright has faced a somewhat tumultuous history, having dissolved for a period of time, the Greyfriars Episcopal Church and its lands served as a local school. Today, Greyfriar’s features a Gothic exterior with urn finials on the gables, all of which were rebuilt out of the old church’s ruins. The monument built in memory of Thomas MacLellan and his wife is a must see.
