DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel north to Scotland with comfort stops en route. Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Our excursion today takes us to Dumlanrig Castle & Gardens, where you can discover over 600 years of family history and its many treasures on display. This afternoon we will have time to discover Dumfries, home to Robert Burns whose life is depicted in the magnificent Robert Burns centre located in the town’s 18th century watermill and Burns House, where Scotland’s national poet spent the last years of his life.

 

DAY THREE

Today we head to the Devil’s Porridge Museum, an ‘explosive’ wartime experience, for an amazing and remarkable story of the people who worked during the First World War in the biggest munitions factory in the world, which was an incredible nine miles long. We will also visit Gretna Green, even if you are not thinking of getting married it is still home to the famous Blacksmiths shop, along with a food hall, gift shop and museum. We will also visit the Annandale Distillery where we will taste a wee dram or two just to warm the cockles before we returning to our hotel.

 

DAY FOUR

Our journey today takes us past Sweetheart Abbey and along the coast with views over the Solway Firth before arriving in the picturesque harbour town of Kirkcudbright with a colourful blend of medieval, Georgian and Victorian buildings and now home to some lovely artists galleries and studios. On our return journey we head north and travel round the shores of Loch Ken before returning to Dumfries.
