Dumfries & Galloway

Stretching from the Borders to the Irish sea Dumfries & Galloway is packed full of history and with that folklore. The diverse nature of Dumfries & Galloway with settlements from the Picts to the Celts and Romans  dotted about, has resulted in a wealth of varied folklore. This has been further assisted by its proximity with the Borders, a hub of Scottish Myths & Legends and Ireland the true home of Celtic Mythology. 

From Robert the Bruce and the Spider to the mystical Heather Ale (the sacred secret of the picts) Dumfries & Galloway has plenty of legends yet to be rediscovered.
