    Visit South West Scotland shared a post.

    There is a south west corner of South West Scotland called the Machars and the Rhins. These photos give you a glimpse into the area. Garlieston on the Machars and the Mull of Galloway on the south Rhins (which, also, happens to be the most southernly point of Scotland). There are bits of history, nature, and sights to see throughout the Machars and Rhins. These photos are from Jim Huntly who recently holidayed there. Come and see for yourself! easy to reach, so hard to leave. offers ideas regarding activities and accommodation...Come and see for yourself!
