Scotland: The Borders Dumfries & Galloway Help Needed

Jump to last reply

Hi! I haven't been around much lately, but my husband and I are planning our visit back home (well his home, not mine) for next year, June. I think this trip we want to focus on The Borders area and/or Dumfries & Galloway with the time we will have not set aside for visiting family/friends in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

I am wondering how much time we should allot or what the bare minimum would be? I read in the Fodors book that 5 days is good, 3 in The Borders and 2 in Dumfries and Galloway. I think five days is the absolute most I'd want to dedicate to this portion of our trip. Would 4 (nights) be enough?

Could we stay in one location (leaning towards a specific B&B near Melrose) for all five days, or would it be advisable to move to a new B&B for the Dumfries & Galloway portion. There's a lot I want to see in The Borders, but I'm not so sold on Dumfries & Galloway. These are the sites I wrote down from one guidebook (The Rough Guide to Scotland), it's not to say we have to go to all these places, or that we even want to (still need to look them up online), just a rough idea. Maybe I missed something as well. (Will have car.)

Caerlaverock Castle
Sweetheart Abbey(?)
Colvend Coast: Threave Garden and Castle, Castle Douglas(?), town of Kirkcudbright (stay here?), MacLellan's Castle?
Mull of Galloway

and my Borders rough list (am I missing anything, anything that should be crossed off? which is a MUST?):
St. Abb's head
Manderston House
Floors Castle
Mellerstain House
Dryburgh Abbey
Melrose Abbey
Abbotsford
Traquair House
Peebles
Jedburgh Abbey
Hermitage Castle (Liddesdale)

Thank you! :)
