Balmaclellan is an interesting village, quietly placed off the Kenbridge – Corsock Road so is convenient for the main A713 running between Ayr and Castle Douglas. The main local centre of Castle Douglas is little more than 20 minutes by car. Dumfries and Ayr are similarly easily accessable. Within this area of the Glenkens, New Galloway is less than 2 miles and Dalry is about five miles and between them they have a reasonable range of local services including general grocery shops , hotels and restaurant facilities . Dalry has a senior and primary school and New Galloway a primary school. New Galloway has a nine-hole golf course and a modern medical practice and the purpose built “CatStrand” of the Glenkens Community Arts Trust initiative offers an excellent range of community activity and artistic and musical performances.

Balmaclellan itself has an excellent shop and is visited by a mobile Bank and Post Office. There is a Post Office in nearby New Galloway. The Village Hall in Balmaclellan enjoys a number of community activities. The Kenbridge Hotel on the A713 is easily walkable . The surrounding area offers excellent walking and other rural pursuits .
The Sheiling is very well presented and is an excellent state of decoration throughout. The original house has been superbly extended by the addition of a large family room, the focus of family life, with an attractive seating area round the wood-burning stove and with a dining area at the opposite end. Twin French doors open to a very sheltered sun-trap.
