Dumfries Maps

Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway (Pevsner Buildings... of Scotland) The turbulent history of this border region, with its varied landscape of coastal plain, moorland and forest, is reflected in strong-walled castles at lonely Auchencass, Caerlaverock and Sanquhar, and in its many tower houses. Equally majestic are the medieval abbeys of Dundrennan, Glenluce and Sweetheart, and the great Baroque ducal palace at Drumlanrig. Lighthouses, farm steadings and small burghs, with their churches and tolbooths, are among the more modest and peaceful charms of this unspoilt south-west corner of Scotland.
