About the neighborhood
Dumfries and Galloway has rolling green countryside. Mostly farmland, but there are wonderful forest trails, walks, lochs, beaches, historical sites. Great tea rooms and restaurants. Kippford is a pretty sailing port with a lovely walk along the coast. Several hotel pubs and restaurants. Threave Castle and gardens are a must see. A variety of booklets available in the apartment.
Getting around
There are buses to Dumfries, Kirkcudbright, Carlisle but the best way to get around is definitely by car. There are many wonderful scenic drives. Also cycling tracks in the Seven Steins. Great for motor cyclists.
