More about Travelodge Dumfries

Scotland's best motel?

by davesut about Travelodge Dumfries

Travelodge have built a range of basic motel type accommodation in the UK over the past few years and this is a real basic affair. No telephone connection to reception, no freebies in the bathroom for me to take home!, no iron for all of my clothes, no pics on the wall. In other words nothing that you don't need. I would prefer to stay in a glourious hotel or a friendly B&B but the special offers that you can get at these places are exceptional value. 25% Discount available at Little Chef right outside if you show the key, Brewsters pub/restaurant 1/4 mile away satisfy the need for family dining at breakfast and dinner respectively. In sum a base and nothing else but then again nothing else matters. Family room big enough for 4 includes ensuite & tv. Customer service very good, value for money exceptional. You need your own transport if staying here as it is situated in the A75 road on the outskirts of the town. If you book with these offers I would be surpirsed if you found even a campsite cheaper from £15 for a family room if you are lucky

Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

by ringleader

Besides Gretna Green and Caerlaverock Castle, what else is there for young people to see and do in the Dumfries / Galloway area? We've been to tourist information sites and have not found much help. Any ideas?

Re: Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

by jamesfmunro

How young? What do you/they like doing? Dumfries & Galloway is a very rural area of farms and villages. An obvious day trip would be Belfast, but you may have planned that already.

Re: Re: Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

Hi~
I think you may have helped us out before.

We are bringing a group of 11 teenagers ages 13-18 and parents equaling a group of 25 to ring handbell concerts in Scotland.

We'll be visiting Jedburgh and the surrounding abbeys, Dundee and Pitlochry, Stirling and Linlithgow, a trip up to Fort William and Glen Coe, and Edinburgh.

We thought perhaps the coastline down near Dumfries would offer a change of pace, as we think they'll be tired of old buildings and ready for something new. What is in Belfast?

Re: Re: Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

by jamesfmunro

I don't think D&G will offer much of a change of pace from many of the places you list, but it is very pleasant and worth a visit. My favourite thing down that way is Hadrian's Wall, which is across the border in England. Belfast, being the capital of Northern Ireland, is a large town and only 1.5 hrs from Stranraer (SW Scotland) by ferry. See www.stena-line-ferries.co.uk for details

Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

by ringleader

James~
Thank you for your advice! We're taking it!!! We are staying just outside of Edinburgh, but were running out of things to do with a bunch of teenagers in our 10-day stay. A trip to Ireland is just what we needed, but instead of traveling 2 hours to Dumfries and over an hour on the ferry at 12 pounds per person, we've found that we can catch a flight from Edinburgh Airport on EasyJet for 1.50 pound a person. WOW! We'll spend a day and a half seeing the coast, glens, and Giant's Causeway, Derry. Thanks a bunch for your idea. Your tips have always been helpful. We'll be taking your suggestion to go to Pitlochry, too.

Re: Touring Dumfries and Solway Firth coastline

by jamesfmunro

Sounds like you got a great deal with easyjet. You'll have a great time in Ireland. The Antrim coast is wonderful. I don't know how you plan to travel when you're there, but you can pick up a bus that runs along the coast, starting at Belfast and ending up in Portrush. That route passes through Ballycastle, next to the Giant's Causeway - and Bushmills were you can visit the whiskey distillery. Beware ethnic sensitivities about the name of Derry / Londonderry - some people seemlngly still get sniffy about what to call the place. Crazy, perhaps, but there it is. A good place to visit, all the same.

From Touring Dumfries to Northern Ireland

by ringleader

Hello again, James~
Since we have so many youngsters in tow, I'll think we'll work at by-passing Gretna Green (you really can't take impressionable teens to an eloping landmark!) and probably the distillery, too. But, we heard there is a rope bridge of some sort up there in NI. Do you know anything about it?

We found for island-hopping, EasyJet has the best prices - less than a hamburger, sometimes!

Do you know anything about the safety up there? And, the town of Derry info center call themselves, "Derry." Which party takes offense to that?

You've been a great help.

Re: From Touring Dumfries to Northern Ireland

by jamesfmunro

Well, Gretna Green is no longer an eloping landmark - weddings there are very much of the conventional type these days. In any case, one might consider Gretna Green a place where mariage has always been seen as a good thing, as the attraction was that people could marry legitimately at very short notice.

The Derry/Londonderry thing is a bit of a strange one, and think it has acquired the status of a curiosity, rather than a serious problem in recent years. The original name of the city is Derry and this is preferred by those holding an Irish Nationalist viewpoint. Londonderry obviously has connotations of the British sovereignty they would prefer to see ended. On the other hand, Unionists, seeing things from the pro-UK positon, traditionally prefer Londonderry.

Re: Re: From Touring Dumfries to Northern Ireland

by jamesfmunro

ps the rope bridge is at Carrick a Rede, just next to Ballintoy, on the Antrim Coast. As for the distillery, you don't have to partake of the product - just an interesting visit. The warehouse is great - it smells like you've been trapped inside a huge Christmas cake :-)

Thank you, as always

by ringleader

Your tips and pointers are always good and always accurate. We've spent the day working on getting to Ireland. We're stuck now, though, until EasyJet's new schedule comes out.

If you live near Edinburgh, we'll have to let you know when our choir will be ringing there. We're booked for a lunchtime concert at St. Giles' Cathedral, if you're interested.

Thanks once again. If we have more questions, we'll be sure to post them to you!

As long as you are aware that the price of £1.50 per flight won't include airport tax etc so will likely work out more expensive that £12 but still a lot quicker & more convenient from Edinburgh.

Have a great trip!

dumfries & Galloway is a beautiful area - I live near there in Ayrshire - but probably not so much of interest to teenagers. I certainly wouldn't have appreciated it at that age!

Travel Tips for Dumfries

a maze of forest trails

by call_me_rhia

Mabie forest, just outside Dumfries, is criss-crossed by a maze of forest trails... you can go for easy forest walks.. long and short. Many trails pass by Mabie House B&B the trails are more like country roads... you'll just need a pair of walking shoes.. even sneakers will do. A map of the trails might be handy unless you are with a local

Lockerbie Garden of Remembrance

by CliffClaven

Twelve miles east of Dumfries lies the quiet town of Lockerbie. Old Cliffie was dining in a restaurant in Dumfries on 21 December 1988 when the pagers of a group of doctors at the next table started beeping furiously in response to a disaster alert. Unfortunately, there was little need for their medical skills at the local hospital as all 259 passengers and crew on board Panam 103 died when it exploded and plunged on to a row of houses at the edge of Lockerbie. Eleven townspeople also died. Family and friends of the victims are frequent visitors to Lockerbie's Garden of Remembrance, where the peaceful beauty of the garden offers some solace as they mourn.

Dumfries

by socheid

Hiya folks,

I haven't lived in Dumfries for any length of time apart from holidays since I left to go to study when I was 17. Make no mistake about it though, I am and always will be a Dumfries boy. I still go back for family visit holidays.

Dumfries is a pretty little town with its own charm and a friendly welcome. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside of broad valleys and rolling hills still undiscovered by the hoard masses who unwiittingly steam by not knowing what they are missing. It has a rich and sometimes gruesome history.

As well as Dumfries' seemingly well known connections with Rabbie Burns, it was a day of blood shed in Dumfries on 10th February 1306 that Robert the Bruce lit the spark that led to his coronation as King of Scots seven weeks later and his eventual victory gaining Scottish independence at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.

In 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie rolled into town at the head of his jacobite rebel army. It was in Dumfries where he demanded the locals handover their footwear to be used instead by his troops.

There's plenty more.

Keep well.
