Dumfries Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Known as the "Queen of the South", this Scottish tourist town is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Agriculture is still the main activity, despite initiatives to diversify into industry and white-collar business. Dumfries has major historical associations with the national poet Robert Burns, and Robert the Bruce, who killed the co-Protector of Scotland here and subsequently triggered the second phase of Scotland's Wars of Independence.
