Dogs in the Studios

We know that for many, travelling with your dog is important so we’ve pulled together some guidance.

The studios are private spaces, many are also the artist or makers home so please read and plan ahead.


There are lots of ways to get to Dumfries & Galloway, with car, bus or train being the best options.

By Car

Dumfries & Galloway is a vast region so there is bound to be roadworks! We have included info on how to find your way to the studios AND links to roadworks HERE.
If you are travelling from outwith the region, check out our blog for information on travel times from major cities HERE.



Our event spans multiple venues across Dumfries and Galloway in the south west of Scotland. We have developed a range of bus tours so you can ditch the car and enjoy Spring Fling in a more sustainable and accessible way. 

Lots of our studios are also accessible by bike and make for a great day’s cycle outing.
