Take a break at one of our holiday parks in Dumfriesshire and enjoy its delightful mix of wild, unspoilt hills, wooded valleys and fertile plains bordering the Solway Firth. Red squirrels and birds of prey thrive in the great forests, and, surrounding the fairytale, moated castle ruins, the meadow and marshland nature trails of the Caerlaverock Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust are a magnet for birdwatchers enjoying caravan holidays in Dumfriesshire.
There are delightful towns and villages to explore too. Don’t miss the Robert Burns Centre in Dumfries and the village of New Abbey is home to both a working Cornmill and Sweetheart Abbey, so called because the lady who funded its building was buried there along with the heart of her long-dead husband. Remote and peaceful, the pretty village of Moniave is well worth a visit, and other attractive towns within easy reach of our holiday parks include Moffat, dominated by its huge sandstone parish church and Langholm, home town of Thomas Telford and the poet Hugh MacDiarmid – to whom there’s a striking memorial outside town. The art collection at Drumlanrig Castle is worthy of mention in its own right, and be sure to visit Gretna Green, romantic and infamous venue for runaway marriages.
