Overall Guide : Solway FirthSolway 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.... more 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 CastleDrumlanrog House is, in actual sense, a ‘baroque country house’. It, as such, didn’t have military function, in spite of 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’.
