Stay in a hotel set in its own lovely parklands
Enjoy Kelso & the Scottish Borders along with a scenic drive along Queens Way to the Mull of Galloway
On this tour we stay close to the Scottish Borders town of Dumfries, known as ‘The Queen of the South’ and the capital of Dumfries & Galloway. This historic market town is connected by lovely russet-hued sandstone bridges which straddle the banks of the River Nith and has an interesting history and special connection to Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns.
Dumfries boasts its fair share of historic gems, including one of Scotland’s oldest bridges. There is also the town’s Greyfriars Church, the site of the monastery where Robert the Bruce committed his murder of John Balliol. The town has also been home to a number of famous individuals throughout its history including Peter Pan author JM Barrie and British Formula One racing driver David Coulthard, but its most famous former resident has to be Robert Burns himself.
Set in a lovely parkland location, our hotel for this Christmas holiday is perfect for our included festive package and touring excursions. Includes 4 nights dinner, bed & breakfast, welcome tea and mince pies, Christmas Day Lunch with all the trimmings, festive games & entertainment, Christmas cake competition & a visit from Santa.
Excursions will include a day touring the Borders stopping for a lunch break at the beautiful town of Kelso PLUS we have a scenic drive along The Queens Way stopping at the Red Deer Range and ending at the Mull of Galloway (that'll blow the cobwebs away!), Scotland's most southerly point...
