Additional Information

Much more than a breath of fresh air welcomes you to Powfoot formerly known as Queensberry, situated twelve miles southeast of Dumfries with a long history as a seaside resort, hugging the shore on the banks of the Solway Coast a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, Powfoot is well worth discovering. Traveling along the west coast takes you through many historic towns and villages. The Solway Coast is renowned for spectacular sunsets and provides a haven of peace for you to enjoy. Dumfries is located in Scotland's Southern Uplands. You will enjoy nature at its very unspoilt best with deep forests, rivers, lochs and peaks. The Solway Firth is a firth that forms part of the border between England and Scotland, between Cumbria and Dumfries and Galloway. It stretches from St Bees Head to the Mull of Galloway. The Isle of Man is also very near to the firth. The firth comprises part of the Irish Sea.

Southwest Scotland is a true golfers paradise. Known as the birthplace of golf, Scotland is home to hundreds of beautiful courses with over 25 in Dumfries and Galloway. The 18-hole links Golf course remains utterly unspoilt and ranked amongst the best courses in Scotland. Powfoot Golf Club has been known to some as a best kept secret for years, due to its breathtaking views over the Solway Firth to the north lakes mountains. Scotland's favourite son Robert Burns spent the last years of his life in Dumfries and is buried at St Michael's Churchyard. The River Nith and its splendid Devorgilla Bridge dating from 1431 is worth seeing as is the nearby weir known in the area as The Caul.

Criffel, by Dumfries-shire's gentle coastline is by no means the biggest hill around but if you like your hills short, sharp and steep and if you ever needed proof that you don't have to climb the biggest hills to get the best views, then this walk is for you. Altitude of only 1800 feet but it's isolated position gives wide views in all directions. Although distant hills catch the eye, the rolling farmland below and the beautiful shapes in the sands of the Nith estuary are what really make the view. While the walk is short in length it does involve more than 500 metres of climbing. Below are views of Loch Kindar, where Crannog dwellers once lived. On a good day you'll see the Lake District hills and the Isle of Man with the Solway Coast laid out below you.

Dumfries Museum will delight aviation history buffs with its restored RAF control tower from World War II and collection of memorabilia from the town's rich aviation history. Be sure to visit Caerlaverock Castle which dates back to 1270. The Theatre Royal plays its own productions and receives visits from other theatre companies. The resident Guild of Players performs five plays and a pantomime each year. You can enjoy a collection of Scottish paintings at the Gracefield Arts Centre. The surrounding areas of Dumfries, particularly south at New Abbey towards the shores of the Solway Firth, hold a number of historic attractions, museums, a farm park and a vast Stately home country park attraction at Drumlanrig near Thornhill.

Caerlaverock’s Wetlands Centre is open all year round to show visitors the coastal landscapes and nature during every season. The most famous member of the wild life is the wild flocks of Barnacle Geese between the months of October and April. Caerlaverock Castle, situated 8 miles to the southeast of Dumfries, is one of Scotland's best ruined castles and not to be missed. Likewise, the ruins of Sweetheart Abbey (once a bustling Cistercian order) at New Abbey. Also of historic interest is the Ruthwell Cross which dates from the 8th century. It's huge at 17 feet and once stood right on the shores of the Solway Firth. Today it's housed in Ruthwell's parish church.

The Devil's Porridge in Eastriggs is an amazing exhibition and tells the story of the Greatest Munitions Factory on earth. During 1915, Britain was losing the Great War through the lack of munitions supplies. That is, until 30,000 women and men came from all over the world to work in this massive factory. It was purpose built by the government to manufacture Cordite, a smokeless propellant used for firing artillary shells. The factory was built in 1915 on the northern shore of the Solway Firth.

The town of Annan sits on the estuary of the River Annan at the eastern end of the Solway Firth and is the principal town in the Annandale and Eskdale area of the Dumfries and Galloway region. Annan's location on the first fordable part of the Solway Firth has always been of great importance. Because of its position, Annan suffered from many attacks during the Wars of Independence and border reiving. In recognition of the towns resistance and loyalty a Charter was granted to Annan by King James V in 1538. The town's Royal Burgh status was reaffirmed in 1612 by King James VI. Each year the Royal Burgh of Annan celebrates The Riding Of The Marches.
