The immediate area adjoining is remote and unspoilt but with plentiful opportunities for exploring and outdoor pursuits. The property is practically on the South West Coastal 300 route too - a stunning drive just over 300 miles taking in our many miles of awesome coastline while you also have the opportunity to marvel at our hills, glens, forests and lochs. The town of Wigtown is within easy reach and hosts an annual Book Festival in September and other visitor attractions throughout the year. The town of Whithorn is also nearby and is the earliest known Christian Community. South West Scotland has a very mild climate due to the effect of the Gulf Stream which and there are several "exotic" gardens in the area which are open to the public and contain unexpected plant varieties for the area.
