Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful part of Scotland, often missed or bypassed by visitors heading further North. A great destination for a holiday and Castle Creavie Hay Barn a lovely base. It is also a great place for children to meet working dogs and see a sheep farm in a beautiful location. Maybe even a few lambs if you visit soon.
