Gorgeous panoramic views, a rugged coastline, beautiful sandy beaches and tranquil lochs - Nunland Hillside Lodges has it all. Dumfriesshire is a magical part of Scotland and the lodges here nestle in a hillside with views over the foothills and forests of Dumfries and Galloway. There is a wealth of pubs and restaurants and some delightful towns and villages to explore. Casa Mia at Dumfries really is a home from home where you can enjoy delicious Italian food before heading back to the lodge to enjoy an evening in your own private hot tub.
Hire your bike at Nunland Hillside Lodges and head to Dumfries for the 7 Stanes Ae, a popular location for mountain bikers. It has a range of trails to suit all abilities and an established downhill course. For a great family activity day, there's the Galloway Sailing Centre, which offers sailing, windsurfing, power boating, kayaking, canoeing, archery and much more, and all on the beautiful shores of Loch Ken.
We thoroughly recommend Criffel Hilltop Lodge, a contemporary and spacious lodge which is brand new for 2012. The views across the countryside are unrivalled and it has a family bathroom, a master double with ensuite and fully glazed patio doors that lead out onto a spacious decking area with its own outdoor hot tub. It sleeps up to four people and has a washer/dryer and flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD.
Dog Sport Scotland runs amazing sled dog races through the heavily forested region of Dumfries and Galloway. Drumlanrig Castle in Thornhill is an ancient Douglas stronghold and home to the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensbury - it sits on a 120,000 acre estate which is beautiful for walks. For a bit of retail therapy, you'll find all the high street shops - and more - at the Loreburne Shopping Centre in Dumfries.
Kiplin Lodges offer Luxury accommodation within 11 acres of stunning grounds all the lodges have private bubbling hot tubs and a family and pet friendly, this really is the perfect base for exploring the area and having a superb family holiday.
