Details

The South West Coastal 300 route in South West Scotland is a stunning drive of just over 300 Miles.

Much of your route follows our many miles of awesome coastline while you will also have the opportunity to marvel at our hills, glens, forests and lochs.

As the South West Coastal 300 is roughly circular, you can start wherever you please. Spend as long as you like exploring the huge diversity of scenery and natural beauty on display along our quiet roads.

Drive through the magnificent Crawick Pass in the Lowther Hills to reach the coast of the Solway Firth. On the way, you may want to detour to visit Scotland`s Highest Village – Wanlockhead.

Discover delightful towns and villages along the Solway Coast such as Kippford and Kirkcudbright as you head for the remote Mull of Galloway – Scotland`s most southerly point and delight in views of the Galloway Hills, Lakeland Fells, the Isle of Man and even the Mountains of Mourne!

Explore the Machars Peninsula along the way where you can discover the history of St Ninian and find out about the rich history we have to offer.

Heading north from the Mull of Galloway, pop into Portpatrick with its harbourside pubs and restaurants as you head towards Stranraer. Look out for seals at Lendalfoot as you head for Girvan before you turn inland towards Sanquhar.

Please return to South West Scotland soon to enjoy the other routes we have for you such as the Scottish Castles Route or the Burns Country Run.

Visit South West Scotland thank Dave Smith and Motor Cycle Scotland, Buccleuch Arms, Moffat for use of the map and route.
