South West Coastal 300


The South West Coastal 300 (SWC300) route in South West Scotland is a stunning drive of just over 300 Miles.

There is so much to explore, including a multitude of historic towns and quaint villages so you could easily spend a week or two on the SWC300 and only scratch the surface!

As you can see from the map of the circular route, Brookford B&B (letter A in the centre of the map) makes an ideal base from which to explore the SWC300. With 4 hop on/hop off points at Dumfries (40 mins drive), Castle Douglas (25 mins drive), Newton Stewart (30 mins drive) and Dalmellington (25 mins drive).

Staying at Brookford B&B means:
  • no searching for accommodation each day.
  • no multiple bookings (and multiple deposits). 
  • no loading and unloading or carrying heavy luggage in your car (better fuel consumption)
  • no packing and unpacking bags each day (more time to enjoy your trip).
  • no restrictive breakfast times (have what you want, when you want!)
  • take a freshly prepared packed lunch or picnic hamper with you so you can stop where and when you want.
  • finish each day with a relaxing drive through the beautiful Glenkens.
  • arrive back a Brookford at any time that you wish
  • enjoy fabulous food at our local pub, The Clachan Inn (voted one of Scotland's best!)
  • relax with a glass of wine on our sun deck before having an evening meal prepared by us.
  • you can fill up at our village petrol station before you leave or at the end of the day (24 hour service). No hunting around for fuel enroute!
Brookford B&B is open throughout the year so you can experience the SWC300 at any time, Come in the winter to see the amazing bird life which visits our coastline. Springtime for the newborn lambs in the fields, snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells in forest glades and pathways. Summer for the long hot sunny days and visits to our wonderful beaches and Autumn for the amazing ever changing colours of the flora and fauna along the route.
