Today it is by far the biggest town in south west Scotland, the administrative centre for Dumfries and Galloway, and the focus of a large rural hinterland. Dumfries was founded as a Royal Burgh in 1186 on the east side of the lowest crossing point of the River Nith. Robert Burns spent the last years of his life in Dumfries, dying here in 1796. On the west side of the River Nith is the Robert Burns Centre, housed in what was once the Dumfries Mill. Also see Dumfries tourist and travel information
