SWC300 Arts & Culture

South West Scotland has been and is home to some world renowned creative talents. From Robert Burns, to J.M. Barrie, Charles Jencks to Thomas Carlyle, the region offers a feast for fans of art and culture! This seven day itinerary follows the South West Coastal 300 route and showcases the best of what our wonderful region has to offer.

Opening dates and times vary across attractions. Please ensure to check opening times and availability directly with each attraction before you visit.

We know that you adventure seekers are always on the move and looking to squeeze in a short break here and there. But there are just too many great adventure options on the South West Coastal 300 to fit the full route into 3 days, so we’ve put together two 3-day bite size itineraries, one covering the southern half of the route and one covering the northern half.

This one takes in the northern half of the route and we have another one which covers the southern part. That way you have the option of doing the SWC300 in two short visits, or should you wish to come for longer, you can simply do one after the other!
