Imitation is said to be the most sincere form of flattery so it’s no surprise that Dumfries in South West Scotland has several copycat towns.
In fact, there are three Dumfries in the USA; three in Canada and even one on the Caribbean island of Grenada.

Two restaurants, an informal cafe bar and regular entertainment such as comedy and tribute nights mean that the hotel is never dull.
