Insider advice for your Dumfries vacation

Not the most beautiful place in Scotland 1 stars
My experience in Dumfries was harrowing to say the least. I went with some friends who wanted me to show them around Scotland, and I soon regretted that Dumfries had been on our route. We spent the better part of a day there, and found the people to be very cold and unfriendly. The town centre emptied out during the afternoon, and by 5PM the place was like a ghost town. We literally did not see any other people walking around in the early evening. Eventually we did find a place to eat; unfortunately the food was terrible and we, the foreigners, were stared at constantly until we finally gave up and left. On our way back to the car we passed the river Nith, which was a disturbing brown colour and smelled vaguely sour. Not a place I'll be returning to - certainly in the context of a week-long trip to Scotland I wouldn't recommend it.


Overview 3 stars
Voted one of the most popular places to live in the UK, Dunfries is a border town in Scotland. With some interesting countryside and a nice town centre it would make a nice place to live, but not the most interesting. There is a lack of things to do, with this looking slightly like your average town centre. Maybe I missed something. The people are friendly and the weather is a lot milder than much of Scotland but I wasn't overly impressed with the town. The lovely Scottish accents and proximity to both England and Edinburgh and Glasgow make up for it.
