Welcome Ambassador - we felt like the royals!
Nov 2017 • Family
We were booked in this beautiful old school Ambassador which has been restored on our way from the airport . Fondly called the' king of Indian roads' , it lives up to the expectations even now. A royal entry into the city that surly swept us off our feet.

If you're interested in UK/US or nautical history, then don't miss John Paul Jones's birthplace
May 2017 • Couples
Like all little museums, JPJ's birthplace is neither well financed nor well-known - but it should be. It's a bit out of the way, but worth it to see what a few enthusiasts can do.

Historical town with so much to explore.
Jul 2016
Dumfries the largest town in this part of Scotland and stepped in history especially with an interest in Robert Burns.
The Robert Burns centre, Burns House, St. Micheal's church and Robert burns Mausoleum, good shopping and very good selection of restaurants, 'Casa Mia' being the best.
The personal tour by the gentleman at St.Micheal's church was the highlight of our visit, excellent informative and it set us up for our Burns tour.

Nice varied things to do in Dumfries.
Jun 2016 • Family
Dumfries has lots on offer to satisfy a range of interests from Robert Burns, history, wildlife, shopping and architecture.

Most activities are within walking distance and conveniently located close to places to stay and eat.

Good central location for days out exploring neighbouring areas of parks and watersides.

Historic and home town of Robert Burns
Aug 2015 • Family
Spent a lovely afternoon strolling the streets of Dumfries. Aura of a real old fashioned market town brought into the 21st century by the familiar named shopping stores.
Little alley ways abound, amid the genial hospitality of both passing locals and resident shop keepers. Never have I met such a friendly bunch. Long live the High Street say I!

There is an abundance of things to see and do, but a must do is the walk beside the River Nith, across common green pastures and parkland. The river rages in parts like white water rapids. In other areas it calms right down. The walk is very easy going and there are plenty of benches for those who want to have a rest and take it all in at a slower pace.

The town has eateries, coffee houses, retail shopping, pet stores to name but a few. There is even a Burns walk around the town and past his statue. A lovely afternoon out.

Shopping in downtown Dumfries
Jun 2015 • Family
The town center is old world/picturesque and worth going to. Be sure to go to the visitors center on the street by the river to get a parking disc. The parking disc is a unique system allowing free parking for the period of time shown on the parking sign.

there are some good shops (the usual Marks & Spencer, Debenhams etc), but also lots of little gift shops which gave variety to Dumfries shopping experience. Take a visit to Monica Browns for bags,silk scarves, jewellery, shop owner very helpful
