DG Life Awards 2017

It wasn't to be, this year, for the festival but we'd like to wish the best of luck to Wigtownshire nominees - Catriona McGhie, Briars Engravers, Life o' Reilly, Kirkcolm Village Shop, Whithorn Trust, Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, House O Hill Hotel, Logan Botanic Gardens & Stranraer Oyster Festival.

The awards takes place this Friday 24th November at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries and we're sure it will be a great night for the West of the region.  Good luck to all those travelling over.

Dumfries & Galloway Life is the region’s favourite award-winning magazine with news, features, homes and gardens, food and drink, arts and leisure, walking, wildlife, history, sport and a great out & about social section plus stunning photography covering this great part of Scotland.
