Welcome to the Wild Seasons website, presenting the outstanding nature based resource of Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland, to visitors and residents alike.
Wild animals are free to move around the cliffs and bays and we will travel slowly along the coast keeping a sharp eye out for seals and seabirds amongst the rock and cliff edges.
Binoculars are available to help you gain close up views and I will help to spot and identify the wildlife during the trip.
You will find the birds and seals sometimes come quite close to the boat so remember to bring your camera.

Information about Isle of Whithorn
This village is one of the most southerly communities in Scotland; set in a picturesque and unspoilt part of Dumfries and Galloway, rich in history and with strong links to the land and the sea.

Journey through Whithorn's museum, priory, crypts, discoveries and changing architecture.
This is a space to pull together information about, and work from, a range of creative people living in, and around Whithorn. In fact it has grown so much since we began with our first Arts and Crafts Trail in 2013 that we have now become an official Creative Whithorn Arts & Crafts Association. As a not for profit colective we have a constitution and hold regular meetings.

Wigtown Book Festival
Wigtown is a traditional market town, set in the beautiful countryside of Dumfries & Galloway, south-west Scotland. It is also Scotland's National Book Town, a designation that reflects its dozen or so secondhand bookshops and annual literary festival. Founded in 1999, the 10-day Wigtown Book Festival is now one of the UK's best-loved literary events and this year has more than 175 events and activities for all ages, including music, theatre, food and visual arts. The Guardian has called it “the sort of festival people become possessive about”.
