Where to Visit?

Spend some time in Kirkcudbright, where art centres, galleries, and stately homes vie for your attention. Near Dumfries, you can unearth the extraordinary story of one man who sought to make the lives of working-class people better through an ingenious banking idea. Stop by Selkirk too, where you can poke your head into a museum that sheds light on life in bygone times.
