    And thar’s gold in them thar hills.
    Honestly.
    And I hate the term “Dumfries and Galloway” which is just an administrative convenience because of low population.
    For any other purpose, location, weather etc, it is useless.

      They are all just an administrative convenience – consider the late unlamented “Central Region”.

      Anyhoo, The County, The Stewartry, and The Shire have been recognised as a political/geographical area for centuries.

    “I thought German or Austrian countryside”: you should read more John Buchan or R L Stevenson novels.
