At the end of the red stone bridge, it’s Dumfries! This city of 30,000 inhabitants is a good base for exploring the Dumfries and Galloway region.
But Dumfries is also charming, with its typical red stone bridge and houses. In addition, the people of Dumfries are famous for being warm, welcoming and proud of their city.
In fact, those who come from Dumfries are called « Doonhamers ». Because in Dumfries, we do not say « down home » to say that one is at home, but « doon hame ».
Also, there is a bistro in Dumfries called « Doonhamer« . There, you can eat simple Scottish dishes prepared on site. Friendly and welcoming, like Dumfries.
