    Southern Scotland is the ideal place to have a family holiday. Apart from the wonderful unspoilt countryside there is a host of family activities and attractions to suit every member of the family, no matter their age or interests.

    Southern Scotland offers parents the chance to relax knowing that their children are safe and able to take part in activities which promote a healthier lifestyle.

    Whether it is learning to sail, canoe, row, waterski or fish on some of the finest fresh water lochs in Scotland, including the beautiful Loch Ken ; to cycling on some of the quietest and prettiest country roads anywhere in the UK, your family will have the time of their lives.

    If something a bit more energetic is required then southern Scotland boasts the world's best mountain biking with many of the 7stanes mountain bike centres offering bike and equipment hire as well as tuition to the absolute beginners.

    Other options include visitor attractions such as Mabie Farm Park or the famous Cream o' Galloway Visitor Centre when every member of the family can enjoy a wide range of activities and a home made ice cream as well. Visit one of the many outdoor family events organised throughout the year, such as the Galloway Country Fair or the one of the many Gala days which take place in towns and village throughout southern Scotland.
