The village of Torthorwald can be traced to the 13th century and the ruins of Torthorwald Castle date from the 15th century. Only 4 miles away is Dumfries whilst the surrounding area contains many castles, abbeys and even a Tibetan Buddhist Centre and is a good centre for touring the rest of the area - the spectacular triangular Caerlaverock Castle and its nature reserve; New Abbey and the Solway Coast - and a starting point for travelling west into the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and the rest of Galloway.
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
