Food & Drinks

Local produce and dining options

Dumfries sits at the heart of some of Scotland's best agricultural land. Many of the town's restaurants use local meat, dairy products, and vegetables in their dishes. If your Dumfries accommodation has a kitchen and you feel like getting creative, head to the farmers' markets at Kilnford, where you can buy local ingredients to prepare a dish at home. If you'd rather someone else do the cooking, there's a restaurant at the market as well. Also, if you've a sweet tooth, stop in at the Cocoabean Café in Twynholm for some delicious handmade chocolates.

Family Activities

Castles, farming, and much more for the family in Dumfries

What kid doesn't enjoy a trip to a historic castle? Two very different castles are within a short drive of Dumfries. Caerlaverock, to the south, played an important role in battles with England. Although it is now in ruins, it's ideal for exploring. To the north, close to the village of Thornhill, is Drumlanrig Castle. This stately home, packed with paintings and antiques, is set amid extensive woodland grounds with a playground and formal gardens.

Farming and agriculture are very important to the Dumfries economy. Check out the farms at Dalscone on the outskirts of town, and at Mabie to the southeast – they're open to visitors and a great place for children to play, meet the animals, and learn about agricultural life. Drummuir Farm uses the milk produced on the farm to make delicious ice cream – why not sample a sundae at the onsite café?

Local Attractions

Scottish history and Solway beaches close by

Dumfries boasts a wealth of fascinating stories, as well as poems – perhaps the town's most famous resident was poet Robert Burns, who lived there in the 1790s. A good starting point is the Robert Burns Centre, which tells the story of his life in Dumfries. See scale models and artefacts that paint a picture of everyday life in Dumfries in the 18th century. Robert Burns House, also open to visitors, contains the poet's desk and a selection of original letters and manuscripts.

South of Dumfries lies the Solway Firth, which separates Scotland from England. Whereas there are beautiful beaches along the length of the Solway coast, the best two are at Sandyhills and Rockcliffe. Sandyhills is particularly good for paddling, sandcastle building, and just for having fun. Galloway Forest Park, west of Dumfries, is one of the few designated 'dark sky' areas in the UK – it's free of light pollution and perfect for stargazing.
