One of southern Scotland’s most lush and idyllic landscapes, Dumfriesshire is undeniably a beautiful region. Its mild climate and vast amount of forestry means that here, local wildlife can be found in abundance. This is just a single factor which makes it one of the most attractive and perhaps highly underrated locations in all of Scotland.
Its principal towns of Dumfries, Longholm and Annan are steeped in local culture and traditional industries; and the notable the production of tweed, beer and famous scotch whiskies have made it an independent and self sufficient district. Situated near to England’s border, the county is also synonymous with the King of Scots, Robert Bruce, and the number of territorial battles that went on up until the 18th century. However, more than anything, Dumfriesshire is probably best known for being the home to the historic and romantically-inspired town of Gretna Green.
Located near the mouth of the River Esk, Gretna Green is a celebrated landmark having originally become famous as the host of countless ‘runaway marriages’. Upon the passing of Lord Hardwicke’s Marriage Act – which stated that you had to have parental consent to marry under the age of 21 – hordes of lovers eloped to the region in the hopes of sealing their union. Today, Old Blacksmith’s Shop is still a popular tourist destination, as well as being the setting for the weddings of fleeing (or simply smitten) couples.
It is impossible to disregard the association Dumfriesshire holds with romance – the two have been bound for centuries. A visit to Gretna Green is not only a reason for the region’s allure; the surrounding countryside also makes it a particularly charming and ethereal setting; one which would make the switch from being one of Dumfriesshire’s singles to being part of a couple, a magical experience.
