Here are three walks in one: the 'Burns Trail' visits some of Rabbie Burns' haunts and other landmarks in a short perambulation around the town centre.
Scotland's national bard lived in Dumfries during the final years of his life in the 1790s and is buried here. Visit his last home, some of his favourite pubs, his mausoleum and museums devoted to his memory.
The longer walk explores the river, some parks and gardens of 'The Queen of the South' and extends to the nearby village of Kingholme Quay, returning along the banks of the Nith.
These two walks are easily combined into a pleasing and contrasting whole; allow at least five hours if visiting museums and pubs with Burns connections too.
