South West Coastal 300

The Road Trip for Lovers of Arts and Culture

The South West Coastal 300 is a road trip that is rich in arts and culture. For fans of literature the route takes in many places associated with Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns, from his birthplace near Ayr to his last home in Dumfries. You can also visit Moat Brae, the house and garden that was the inspiration for Peter Pan’s Neverland. And a visit to Wigtown, home of the Wigtown Book Festival is a must for book lovers.

For art lovers, spend a day or two in Scotland’s Artist Town, Kirkcudbright. Home to many galleries including the wonderful Kirkcudbright Galleries and Broughton House, this pretty port town is famed for the quality of its light and has been a magnet to artists since the mid 19th century.

Another wonderful artistic aspect of the SWC300 are the landscape art installations around the route. Visit the superb Striding Arches by Andy Goldsworthy near Cairnhead or the astronomical and cosmological landforms at Crawick Multiverse created by Charles Jencks.
