Tourist information and destination rating

Category: Region, Local time: 06:29:42

South West Scotland, a sought tourist region, lies between the cities Ayr, Kilmarnock and Dumfries. Turn west from the Borders into Dumfries  and Galloway and you're soon breathing fresh ocean air and taking in the incredible views across the Irish Sea towards the Isle of Man. The area is rich in history and connected with e.g. Robert Bruce who in 1307 launched his campaign to free Scotland right here. Furthermore, the area is a paradise for golfers, cyclists, walkers, and sea and game anglers. You'll also find some real hidden gems here: a colourful Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the east of the region and Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town in the west, a feast for the eye in Kirkcudbright Artists' Town and a very nice surprise in nearby Castle Douglas Food Town. Heading north you enter the rich green pastures of Ayrshire, a county which is as rich in literary heritage as it is in beautiful scenery. Robert Burns is the most famous of its historical residents, and his Heritage Park is a must-see for visitors. Ayrshire is also one of Scotland's best golfing destinations, with three Open Championship courses and dozens of other fine links courses dotted along its coastline. The spectacular granite mountains, ancient stone circles and the sheltered waters of the Firth of Clyde act as a magnet for walkers, cyclists, fishermen and sailing enthusiasts alike. The Isle of Arran is known as 'Scotland in miniature', offers a delightful spectrum of Scottish scenery and wildlife.
