locus amoenus

Seen on the road north today, just over the border:
Welcome to Dumfries & Galloway - the natural place
Leaving aside consideration of the six-man copyrighting team who worked for 3 months to come up with that strapline, this begs the obvious question the natural place for what, exactly?
And if Dumfries & Galloway's the natural place, then where exactly is the unnatural place?
Dr Biswell reckons that it's probably somewhere in Manchester, but if you've got a better suggestion, please make with the comments . . .

Dissington, one of the most unnatural places I've had the misfortune to stray into.

Simon - I've always found Frizington rather more satisfyingly weird . . .
