Hotels in Dumfries
Dumfries, an attractive market settlement, is often referred to as the 'Queen of the South' and has been a prominent settlement since at least the Norman era.
Origins of the town
This area was inhabited as far back as the Roman era, although it wasn't until 1186, when Dumfries received Royal Burgh status, that the settlement began to expand into a busier trading centre. The town was also close to the royal Norman castle of Castledykes, which was once the home of the King of Scotland but fell into dilapidation before it was replaced with a tower house in the 15th century.
What to see
The Burns House
Visit the charming sandstone house that was once the home of one of Scotland's most distinguished literary geniuses, Robert Burns. Born in Alloway, Ayrshire in 1759, Burns was one of the key figures of the Romantic era, and spent his final years in Dumfries. He was also one of the first passengers to board the world's first steamboat, on October 14th, 1788, which was invented by the eminent engineer William Symington.
The Dumfries Museum
Exhibiting many intriguing pre-historic artefacts, the Dumfries Museum benefited from a substantial refurbishment in 2011 and is probably best known for its unique camera obscura, the oldest still in operation in the world.
Founded in the 13th century, Sweetheart Abbey was an important monastic centre until the early 17th century and is adjacent to an 18th-century mill. The site also features one of the best preserved precinct walls in Scotland and is open to the public throughout the year.
This alluring category A listed castle is undoubtedly one of Scotland's finest homes and is still the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry. Dating back to the late 17th century, Drumlanrig Castle is also revered for its decorative Renaissance architecture, art collection and elegantly landscaped grounds.
