Planned villages erected in the Scottish countryside in the 18th and 19th centuries did much to create the settlement structure of rural Scotland today. South-west Scotland was affected by this movement as much as other regions of Scotland. This paper demonstrates the importance of the planned village movement to Dumfries and Galloway by ascertaining how many planned villages were erected in this region, by whom and for what purpose. The continuing importance of the planned villages is also demonstrated.
