For those in Dumfries last year you will remember how popular the Tour of Britain event was on Whitesands. This year The Tour is back and it will be finishing in the stunning grounds of Drumlanrig Castle. But don’t worry you won’t miss the fun, this year in recognition of the tremendous support of the cyclist and to help ease congestion Dumfries and Galloway council will be helping us get there by providing free transport! Awesome.
