Lots of nice small towns and villages, Caerlaverock has a castle as well as the wetlands. Creetown, Whithorn, Glenluce, Portpatrick.

If you head up by Newton Stewart, Glen Trool / Loch Trool gets you into the hills and is scenic and a little bit historic.

You could head NW into Ayrshire - Lots of town s and villages which are half farming communities, half old mining areas, but you are in Burns country if you want to 'do' the bard. Or you could head East to visit Locherbie and Moffat - the latter being an attractive touristy town and the home of 'Moffat Toffee'

Depends how far you want to go each day ... and whether the girls are locked more into Disney and Legoland, or the outdoors.

thanks very much Derek G. The girls are more outdoorsy types. Well, we like to think they are. ha ha
