We've delivered you a fine hand-picked Escape this week to the Nith Riverside Cottages on the Scottish Southern Upland Way, on the banks of the River Nith. Unwrap a three-night stay for up to four for £180 (up to a £360 value) in one of the lovely self-catering lodges, or extend your stay to four nights for £240 (up to a £480 value). The delightful cottages are equipped with flat screen TVs, DVD players, and fully-fitted kitchens -- they're even pet friendly, so you can bring furry friends along for the trip. The ruins of Sanquhar Castle, once conquered by William Wallace, are only a few miles down the road and a must-see spot for history hedonists. Alternatively, enjoy an old-fashioned ice cream float in a café in Thornhill, take a dip in the local pool, or peruse the book shops for some Robert Burns' poetry, in preparation for a trip to Ellisland Farm, where he wrote some of his classic pieces. Travel a little further afield to cosmopolitan Glasgow for a Christmas shopping expedition or tackle the culture and history of Scotland's capital, Edinburgh. The post office in the neighbouring village is the oldest in the world -- but this special delivery won't be around for as long: sign for it now.
