Level 100
Overall rating: 6
Not to miss:  Solway Firth
Solway Firth can be referred to as a firth which goes on to form a portion of border between Scotland and England, between Galloway and Dumfries. The beauty of this coastline lies in its small mountains and lowland hills. It’s basically a rural region with hill farming and fishing still having played a huge part with respect to local economy. This coast’s splendor has attracted tourists from across the globe.
Drumlanrig Castle
Drumlanrog House is, in actual sense, a ‘baroque country house’. It, as such, didn’t have military function, in spite of ... More 2 earlier castles (defensive) standing on site. This castle was constructed between the years ‘1684’ and ‘1691’ for the first ‘Duke of Queensberry’.
‘Grand Avenue’ is the first thing noticed by the visitor over here. It leads to Castle’s front area. House is located in ‘working farm land’.

Dumfries had been county town with respect to Dumfriesshire, Former County.
