Scotland’s South West Coastal 300 road trip lets you escape into nature. The route offers 200 miles of stunning coastline. Along the way, you’ll discover Rockcliffe, one of Scotland’s most beautiful stretches of coast, where you can enjoy spectacular views over the Solway Firth.

An absolute must-see for nature lovers visiting the SWC300 is the Galloway Forest Park, the largest forest in the UK and the UK’s first Dark Sky Park. Categorised as a Gold Tier dark sky park because of its extremely low light pollution, on a clear night, you’ll see night sky as never before! Within the Galloway Forest Park is the Wood of Cree, the South of Scotland’s largest ancient woodland and a magical place for a walk.

If botanical gardens are something you enjoy, you will be spoiled for choice on the SWC300. From the five star Logan Botanic Gardens, to the home of the School of Heritage Gardening, Threave Gardens, to the spectacular gardens of the large estates of Drumlanrig Castle and Dumfries House. There are so many to choose from.
