So much to see and do
Castles and gardens, whisky and walks, festivals and folklore
A rich cultural heritage
South Ayrshire, Dumfries, and Galloway are full of surprises for castle guests. The beautiful isles off the west coast of Scotland with their whisky distilleries and wildlife are there to be discovered and accessible by the castle's boat. On land, the history of the region can be seen through its ancient monuments and castles while the local traditions are celebrated in the many music and arts festivals and country shows.
