A new film has brought to life the breathtaking scenery and diverse array of activities on offer for visitors to Dumfries & Galloway.
The region has long been celebrated for its rugged landscapes, unspoiled coastlines and literary links but now a new film produced by VisitScotland brings to life the people and the places at the heart of the region and lifts the lid on what makes it a unique and memorable destination.
From the unspoiled beaches at Sandyhills Bay to the ruins of Caerlaverock Castle and the famous dark skies of Galloway Forest Park, the film shines the spotlight on the greatest assets and icons of Dumfries & Galloway, as well as some of the hidden gems.
The region is a destination of choice for adventurers seeking an adrenaline rush with the amazing facilities at Laggan Outdoors and Galloway Activity Centre on the banks of Loch Ken, as well as the 7stanes Dalbeattie Mountain Biking Centre.
For those wishing to get up close and personal with the region’s animals, Nocturnal Wildlife Tours operates tailored tours throughout the region from its Castle Douglas base.
Dumfries & Galloway’s outstanding natural larder also plays a major role in attracting visitors to the area to sample regional delights, from ice cream to fudge, meat, bread and cheese on offer at local events such as the popular Wigtown Farmers’ Market which appears in the film.
