South West 300 Coastal Route
.
.
The South West Coastal 300 is a beautiful circular route which take in the best of the Solway Firth, up the coast of ayrshire and then through Galloway and back down to dumfries.
.
The Solway Coast is one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland set just across the border from England and this was firmly stamped when it was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1964. This small part of Scotland has so much to give and being the third largest estuary in the UK it is absolutely full to the brim with wildlife, beautiful sandy beaches and dramatic coastline that no matter what corner you turn you will not be disappointed.
.
As well as the incredible landscapes and seascapes the Solway Coast is steeped in history with many castles and fortifications being built to protect Scotland from the enemy. There are also a number of interesting abbey ruins scattered all across the region dating from as far back as the 1100’s as well as Whithorn Priory the site of the first Christian church in Scotland, founded by St Ninian in the 4th century.
.
This beautiful underated area of Scotland is full of historical, geographical and mystical attractions to explore and the more time you have to enjoy the Solway Coast the better.
.
Ayrshire is often overlooked as many people travel up north into The Highlands, all I can say is in my eyes they are without doubt missing a trick. The people, the hotels, the activities and last but by no means least the views are spectacular and unforgettable.
.
The place is full of interesting and exciting activities and adventures and hopefully we can provide you with just enough information as a wee sneaky taster and get you to put on your travelling boots and take a trip down the beautiful Ayrshire Coast.
.
This beautiful piece of Scotland has a real history and an unbelievable natural beauty from the forests of Galloway to the coastline of Dumfries & Galloway and up the Ayrshire coast. The South West 300 is the perfect way to discover the unique character of this fascinating area.
