Dumfries Dumfries No Data


Dumfries is a large town that sits on the River Nith a short distance from where it empties into the Solway Firth. There's speculation that the town may have risen to prominence during the Roman era, being the opposite site of the firth from Hadrian's Wall. However it's real claim to fame is that for the final 5 years of his life Robert Burns lived (and died) in the town. Today it's a key stop on the Burns tourist route through this part of South West Scotland
