The South West

The south-west corner of Scotland includes the town of Largs at the north of Ayrshire, the island of Arran, and through Dumfries and Galloway to Gretna Green near the English border.

Golf is popular throughout the area with strings of verdant courses linking together especially along Ayrshire's coast. The island of Arran along with Dumfries and Galloway offer more secluded tracts that are ideal for holiday golfing. The counties of Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway are both established fishing areas. Ayrshire has over 80 miles (129km) of coastline, some twenty lochs and reservoirs and many miles of fast-flowing rivers. Most places along the coast have some off-shore fishing facilities. Local clubs and associations to whom you apply for a permit, generally control inland waters. Listings of these clubs are found in the local Tourist Information Offices.

The southern part of this area especially along the Solway Firth, is one of the least discovered of Scotland's many regions.
