On the outskirts of Kirkcudbright and accessed by a rising tarmacadam drive through beautifully landscaped gardens, Rockmount sits in an elevated position and commands outstanding views over Kirkcudbright and the Dee estuary. Architect designed and built to an exacting specification by Riddick & Son of Haugh of Urr. Excluding the garage, the living accommodation measures approximately 3,190 square feet (296 square metres) externally and provides beautifully proportioned and well laid out accommodation with the main reception rooms situated off a spacious entrance hall from which separate wings lead off in either direction to bedroom and family accommodation.

Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of "The Glasgow Boys", which is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named "The Artists' Town".

The south-west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and, of course, golf. The Solway is also a popular yachting destination and Kirkcudbright has improved berthing facilities.
