The final programme in the Hidden Scotland series, where we're encouraging people to visit those places often overlooked when holidaying or staycationing in Scotland. This weekend it's Kirkcudbrightshire.

Mark Stephen finds out why artists have flocked to the area over the decades, he climbs Criffel and wanders around the Clints of Dromore.

Euan McIlwraith has a go on the 7stanes mountain bike track at Dalbeattie and finds out about the area's smuggling past.

And Denise Glass sails out of Kirkcudbright marina.
