Dumfries and Galloway form the south-west of Scotland; a broad wedge of land jutting out into the Irish Sea between the Solway Firth and the Firth of Clyde. The area is also part of Scotland's border country which possesses a mild climate, a great variety of scenery and a rich historic legacy, making it a popular destination for holidays and a lush contrast to the more rugged landscapes found just slightly further north. The mountains of Dumfries and Galloway offer plenty of remote and challenging walking, with over 40 peaks that exceed 2000 feet. Also featured are clifftop walks around the Mull of Galloway and Rascarrel Bay, a route around the Solway Marshes plus the pigramage destination of St Ninian's Cave.
