Situated on the wide banks of the River Nith a short distance inland from the Solway Firth, DUMFRIES is by far the largest town in southwest Scotland. Long known as the "Queen of the South" (as is its football club), the town flourished as a medieval seaport and trading centre. Enough remains of the original, warm red-sandstone buildings to distinguish Dumfries from other towns in the southwest. A worthwhile stop, it also acts as a convenient base for exploring the Solway coast, to the east and west, and is second only to Ayr for its associations with Robbie Burns.
