Private House Stays defines Dumfriesshire as the Eastern half of the Dumfries and Galloway area that includes the spectacular Bird watching and beauty spots along the Solway Firth and stretches North along the A76 through Sanquhar until you meet up with Southern Ayrshire. It is a much under-rated part of Scotland except by the North-west English who have holidayed here for generations. The Northern coastline of the Solway is a magnet for artists and the Kirkcudbright and Wigtown Book festivals are highly rated.
