.... more than ever,

Can anyone recommend anything good in the southern half of MacLand?

doesn't necessarily need to be bike related, just nice a quiet, away from everything, oh and decent weather.. :lol:

I appreciate the last this there might be difficult :wink: . We need a family holiday and we've done England Ireland and Wales already this year, so wanna try a proper country now.. :wink: 8) :D

Pretty much what Dyna says, Dumfries and Galloway, cross the border at Gretna north of Carlisle and turn left (westward). Lots of lovely coastal villages and wee towns plus several of the 7stanes mtb centres near by. Dumfries is a nice town as is Newton Stewart further west. Drumlanrig castle has biking, gardens and stately home with associated craft shops and cafe. Lead mining museum near as well. Beaches, forest, hills etc etc
I'm selling it so well I think I want to holiday there :D

^^^^ glad to see you're selling my home area well!!! :lol: another nice part in that neck of the woods is Kirkcudbright, it's near the coast, it's also central to alot of the 7 stanes and ideal for the Galloway forest park. Lots of nice self catering places in that area too.

cheers

Greig.
