Dumfries and Galloway is a region rich in natural beauty, historical attractions and fascinating activities. A varied landscape of hills, moorland, coastline, forest and rivers is just waiting to be explored, as is the Mull of Galloway, the most southerly point of Scotland.
One of Scotland’s the most attractive and interesting castles is Caerlaverock, which was built to control the waters of Solway Firth, the southwest entrance to Scotland. The border conflicts with England gave the castle a turbulent history. Till the12th century, when it came under the Normans, the eastern Solway had alternated between English and Scottish rule.
