Walking Holidays in Scotland

How to Get Here?

At Galloway Walking Holidays we offer both self-guided and guided walking breaks in Dumfries and Galloway region of South West Scotland.

The diverse landscape including the Solway Coast, Galloway Hills, Galloway Forest Park, with small towns and villages in between, is ideal for a walking tour.

We are flexible and able to arrange walker-friendly accommodation, do drop-offs and pick-ups and transport luggage using our minibus. We mostly tailor walking packages to suit our customers' schedule and requirements.

Our 5 star Tripadvisor rated Summerhill B&B with swim spa is popular for accommodation at our base in Castle Douglas.

For overseas visitors, being only 1 hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh by train, we can assist you to combine your walking tour with a holiday break in these cities or even the Scottish Highlands.

Please contact us for a quick response to your walking holiday enquiry. 

Thank you for a very special day. The walk along the coast was amazing and very well planned. The service and hospitality was excellent and Tina's breakfast the best of all we had during our week in Scotland. - Sten and Ann Palmqvist, Stockholm, May 2012.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip Robin, both John and I just loved walking through your beautiful countryside, the lovely rolling hills, and the magnificent coastal views. - Elinor & John Irvine, Oman.

We enjoyed the holiday very much and the varied walks. We did not follow them all exactly as we spent more time in Threave Gardens and also in Kirkcudbright. - Joan & Ted, England.

Thank you for a wonderful walking holiday. I hope to come back for more in the future. - Pat Schmitz, Germany.

We wanted to thank you for the excellent stay in Castle Douglas, superb hiking/biking trail/tour planning, and overall fine stay we had with Galloway Holidays. - Don and Nan Marquardt, Iowa, USA, 2011.

I have been around the world many times and I can honestly say that this holiday in Scotland was one of the best, most friendly, most fulfilling that I have ever been on. - Tina Watkins, Bexhill on Sea, England, 2011.

Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality whilst I stayed with you, both of you made my holiday everything I dreamed of. Needless to say I will be back. Hopefully this time with cycling involved. - Jan, Adelaide, Australia. Feb, 2012
