Scotland arriving late afternoon at our hotel for
4 nights stay with dinner, bed and breakfast and
tea/coffee and shortbread biscuits served on

Today’s excursion takes us along
Solway’s secret coast, to the fishing port of
Kirkcudbright, stopping at Sweetheart Abbey
along the way and continuing to Newton Stewart
for our lunch stop. We travel through scenic
Galloway Forest Park and New Galloway to
Dumfries & Gretna.


Our day covers the scenic Scottish
Borders Region. We begin with a drive to Hawick
for a break and then continuing via Galashiels to
the town of Peebles, where we have some free
time to look round. Our return takes us via
Tweeddale to Moffat, famed for its connections
with the wool trade, Lochmaben and Annan.

along Liddesdale as we make our way to
picturesque Kielder Water and Forest Park. Here
we enjoy a cruise on the lake before we continue
to Bellingham and Hexham, dominated by the
Abbey overlooking the market square. This
afternoon we return along the path of Hadrian’s
Wall, which stretched some 76 miles from the
Tyne to the Solway.
