  • Brought my son here and was treated to a personal tour specifically aimed for him. Very obliging and definitely a hidden gem close to Dumfries. Highly recommended.
  • Had a wonderful informative hour here . Wish I could have taken the people I work with ( At Sheltered Housing ) for a outing there.
  • Very interesting little Museum that is dedicated to the creator of Sparkassen. There are also exhibits from Germany. The admission is free.

Where to stay in Dumfries

As Dumfries is just a small city within the Dumfries and Galloway region, the city itself is somewhat limited on places to stay. You'll find a handful of mid-range to high-end hotels in the city--if you're intent on being based in Dumfries, it's best to book early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise, there are plenty of options in nearby cities and towns such as Sanquhar, Lockerbie, Auchencairn, and Thornhill.
