Just over the Scottish Border you’ll discover the region of Dumfries and Galloway, where a stay at a local hotel will you allow you to adventure out to some of the nation's most idyllic countryside, including the windswept Solway Coast and the lush green woods of Galloway Forest Park, home to rare wildlife such as the Red Kite. This storied region is also host to a plethora of cultural sites, from the Robert Burns Centre to Sweetheart Abbey.
Visit the town of Moffat
Traditionally a sheep farming town, Moffat was more recently known as a spa destination, until 1921 when the Hydropathic Hotel was destroyed in a fire. Today, the tree-lined town, which sits among rolling green hills is pleased to have been the first in Scotland designated with the “Walkers are Welcome” status, making it a great stop to include on local walking trips. With a number of great local shops, hotels, and lodges, you can easily plan a visit to Moffat with the use of the Expedia search tool.
If you’re looking to explore and enjoy all the majestic cultural and scenic offerings that Scotland has to offer, then be sure to include a visit to Dumfries and Galloway on your next Scottish adventure.
