Description
Galloway Holidays has developed from Galloway Cycling Holidays in 2007 and now offer a variety of personalised speciality activity holidays in Dumfries and Galloway region. Our holiday breaks on offer include: Cycling Holidays ? We continue to arrange cycling breaks for all standards of cyclists on quiet country sign-posted cycle routes and roads throughout the region. Start and finish on any date to suit your schedule. We use our local knowledge to arrange cycling-friendly accommodation and offer cycle hire, luggage transfer and a back up service. Mountain biking Breaks ? Should you wish to indulge in a bit of mountain biking during your stay in the region, whether on one of the Dumfries and Galloway 7 Stanes sites or on the Drumlanrig Estate trails, we combine our holiday arrangement skills and our mountain biking contacts to devise mountain biking breaks using the easy/moderate standard green/blue trails. As well as biker-friendly accommodation, we can arrange bike hire, repairs, skills advice and trail leader assistance. We can combine a road cycling break with mountain biking centre stop-off days or even advise on other activities for non- bikers. Walking Breaks ? With over 200 miles of coastline, the Galloway Forest Park and three National Scenic Areas, numerous popular community and other walks of all types can be found in the region. We use our local knowledge to arrange leisure walks, usually up to 6 miles (10 km) often using existing popular way-marked walks with tea rooms or pubs along the way or at the end. We have a large menu of day walks to suit all abilities and along with arranging your accommodation, we can compile a walking break for whatever duration you require. Car Touring ? With such a diverse countryside terrain including hills, glens, river valleys, forests (including two forest beauty spot drives) and the long coast with many small towns and villages of individual character, there are plenty of interesting places to visit on a tour by car in Dumfries and Galloway. Again we use our in-depth region-wide knowledge of unique attractions e.g. the Samye Ling monastery (tea room) or our three ?Absolutely FAB? (Food, Art and Books) theme towns, to provide a personalised service to devise car tour routes according to suit your interests. We arrange accommodation including at the top four star hotels. Golf Breaks ? Dumfries and Galloway has many 9 and 18 hole golf courses. We have played many! We have a local golfing holiday partner who arranges golfing breaks around our centrally situated base in Castle Douglas or we can use our contacts to arrange golfing breaks including accommodation and transport elsewhere in the region. Family History - Using our local knowledge, previous family history research experience, and current researcher contacts we offer to provide a genealogy or family history service within Dumfries and Galloway region. The service includes a) research - by our research partners, and b) a guide service by ourselves for those visiting our area. We will provide the necessary advice and assistance according to the level of service you require. City Breaks and the Natural Scotland Experience - If you would like to combine a city break with a cycling, walking or car touring break in Galloway experiencing typical Scottish countryside, we can a) advise on travel arrangements and b) arrange accommodation along with the c) activity arrangements. Our service is personalised according to the standard of accommodation, duration and type of break you require. Our base in Castle Douglas is less than 2 hours by car or rail from both Edinburgh and Glasgow ? both accessed by low cost airline Easyjet. Glasgow Prestwick airport, operated by Ryanair, is only one hour away. Family Breaks - Apart from several good beaches, there are various other places in our region which should hold the interest of children and young people.

Along with arranging your accommodation, we also advise on other places to visit and things to do in the area which can combine to make a both exhilarating and relaxing break in our region.
