Set in a remote, stunning location, it offers excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and general exploring, or you can simply relax in the large conservatory and enjoy the wonderful view and watch the birds. Being surrounded by mountains on clear nights the star-gazing is exceptional.
Once the Earl of Galloway's mountain retreat, The Buchan is 'off-grid' and offers life at a different pace. It has no internet, television and limited mobile reception, although it does have a land line. Its services are entirely reliant on nature, with its own hydro-electricity and water supplies, and there is full central heating and a wood burning stove. Most of the time these are straightforward to operate with care and common sense, although during long periods of very dry or very cold weather power can be reduced. There is a backup generator and LPG cooker, and the wood burner provides both heating and hot water, but a certain amount of initiative is required. High powered appliances such as the dishwasher and washing machine may not be available. The hot tub in the conservatory is very popular but does require patience and careful management.
There are over two acres of semi-enclosed private land with a small burn and pond. Sheep, cattle and wildlife are all around so pets must be kept under strict control.

Damage Deposit for care of property

All holiday-makers booking a holiday are required to pay either a Damage Deposit, £150 or as noted in the property listing details, or Damage Deposit waiver of £18, whichever is selected is required to be paid with the balance payment of the holiday. Where selected the Damage Deposit will be held by Discover Scotland to be applied against the reasonable costs of repairs, replacement or additional cleaning of furnishings, kitchen equipment, crockery, glass, bedding and towels damaged or soiled other than by normal wear and tear during the holiday. The Damage Deposit, less any reasonable charges, will be returned within 14 days of the departure date. Where any costs exceed the Damage Deposit the holiday-maker will pay such excess as notified to them by Discover Scotland within 14 days of notification. Where the holiday-maker has agreed to pay the Damage Deposit Waiver the Damage Deposit is not payable. This amount is non-refundable. If the cost of any damage or breakages exceeds the applicable Damage Deposit value for the property, then the holiday-maker will be liable for any additional costs. Any such excess will be notified to them by Discover Scotland and due for payment within 14 days of notification.
