Head to a beautiful area of Scotland which is made up predominantly of mountains, ancient woods and a beautiful coastline; Dumfries and Galloway. There is not much more you could ask for from a region if you’re looking for a relaxing staycation!
You will be staying at The Nithsdale Hotel, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4/5 as well as Certificate of Excellence for 2014. This hotel has a really nice feeling about it, it’s a family-run hotel so they know exactly how to make you feel welcome and settled. Whilst you are staying here you be provided with Breakfast each morning, so you don’t have to worry about going out to find somewhere else to eat.
Also included in this deal is a 2-course meal for your first night. This is a nice touch, meaning that you can really relax completely on your first night and then once you’ve gotten your bearings you could go out and explore in search of somewhere else. That is, of course, unless you enjoy your first meal so much that you want to go back again.
Whilst you’re here I would definitely recommend heading to the Sanquhar Castle, it is now in ruins but I always think it’s nice to visit ruins and imagine what it was once like and learn about what happened to it. It’s kind of like a scene in Brave; the bit where she runs into the legend about the bears. If you wanted to see a building that’s not in ruins I can recommend Drumlanrig Castle, it’s more of an extensive country house than a castle, but is really pretty.
Really close by is the Southern Upland Way. This is an absolutely stunning path that stretches from one Coastline of Scotland to the other. I would really recommend heading to one of the areas on the walk, the views are absolutely stunning, you’ll be surprised.
