Known for producing many artists and writers, this beautiful part of Scotland is full of history, culture, and rare wildlife. Two hundred miles of magnificent coastline, green forests, and the highest village in Britain are all part of Dumfries and Galloway. The county stretches from the border with England to the Irish Sea, and it’s easy to reach by car, plane, rail, and ferry — and once you’re here, you can rely on public transport, walking, cycling, or even horse riding to get around. There’s no shortage of attractions here, for retail or historical interests, and schools and healthcare access are generally very good. Your potential dream home in Dumfries and Galloway could be a stone terrace, Victorian villa, Georgian house, for a comparatively low price — and rest easy knowing that crime and unemployment in the county are both very low.
