    Not sure if Galloway classified as the borders but there's some decent walking there.
    Newton Stewart's a decent base, had a long w\e there last Feb in very wet weather, but fitted in a couple of walks. We B&B at a pub on the high street.

    Called briefly back on a trip to Arran at Easter in much better weather and took the mtn bike up to Merrick, should have been a great downhill back down but broke a bolt on my seatpost :-(

    Forgot to add the hills around Moffat do indeed look good for walking. I bypassed them on the way to doing some mtn biking from Peebles last year.
