Dumfries is the largest town in Dumfries and Galloway.
Situated on the banks of the River Nith, Dumfries plays host to
a wide variety of activities and attractions. Historically, Dumfries
was at one time, home to Robert Burns who is buried at St Michaels.
J.M Barrie was educated in Dumfries and Robert the Bruce killed
the Red Comyn on the steps of Greyfriars Church in the town. Dumfries
has a busy town centre with many well-known high street stores as
well as small local shops.
The Guid Nychburris Festival is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and members of the Association, all of whom are unpaid and voluntary, work hard year round, to provide a programme of events which we hope will appeal to Doonhamers and visitors alike and encourage you to take an active part.
