Signpost Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders from the M74

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


Add at least one blue road sign to the M74 to alert drivers heading south from Glasgow that there are two regions - Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders before you leave Scotland and reach Carlisle. Current signage south of Glasgow only contains "South" and "Carlisle" giving tourists and other travellers the impression that there is nothing between Glasgow and Carlisle. 

Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders are Scotland's hidden gems. Both of these beautiful regions offer a wealth of activities, attractions, Awarding winning Food & Drink and accommodation which are often currently overlooked by the thousands of tourists who use the M74 to travel south after holidays in the Highlands, Central Belt and other more intensively advertised areas of this wonderful country. The rural economies of both Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders could benefit from additional signage.

This Petition is proposed by 

Robertson Wellen, Ferintosh Guest House, Dumfries

Colin McQueen, Dumfries Villa, Dumfries

Derek & Suzy Pennycook, Torbay Lodge, Dumfries
