D&G, Countryfile Destination of the Year 2105-16
Dumfries and Galloway is now officially the best place in Britain for a holiday!

The accolade of 'Holiday Destination of the Year 2015/16' as voted by the readers of Countryfile Magazine comes as no surprise to anyone who lives or has visited here. However, there is a certain amount of amazement that it has taken so long for D&G to be recognised as somewhere very special indeed!

Dumfries and Galloway is a hidden gem situated in the south west corner of Scotland.
With a stunning blend of heather clad hills, remote lochs hidden by ancient forests to breathtaking coastal views out across the Irish Sea and the Solway Coast, Dumfries and Galloway is the ideal place to relax, explore or pursue your favourite outdoor activity.

Dumfries and Galloway also offers vast open spaces with  peacefully quiet villages and hamlets making it a great destination for a more relaxed holiday or short break.
