Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh within the Dumfries and Galloway council area of Scotland. It was the county town of the former region of Dumfriesshire, with a proud Viking history, and Dumfries hosted the vanquished Norwegian Army during World War II.
Queensberry Square and High Street are the focal points of Dumfries, hosting many of the town's historical, social and commercial enterprises. During the 1990s, these areas enjoyed various aesthetic recognitions from organisations including Britain in Bloom. Dumfries Museum is housed in an 18th century windmill.
