On the banks of the Nith, the town of Dumfries is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. Agriculture is still the main activity, despite initiatives to diversify into industry and white-collar business. Dumfries has major historical associations with the national poet Robert Burns, and Robert the Bruce, who killed the co-Protector of Scotland, thereby triggering the second phase of Scotland's Wars of Independence.
