[Sunset in Dalbeattie]

This is an area famed for its stone. Dalbeattie granite lines the streets and buildings of cities across the world, and more locally forms the features of the nearby mountain bike trails, rocky hills and the unique tower house at Palnackie. The town is no Aberdeen though - just a short, busy High Street with the necessary basics either side of the Kirkgunzeon Lane river. Luigi's is our pick of the places to eat: a truly outstanding Italian restaurant.
