Barrochlea sits down a private lane beside the A710 scenic route from Dumfries to Dalbeattie by way of the Solway Coast, enjoying a peaceful rural hamlet location with delightful views over agricultural land to forests and hills beyond. Within close proximity of Dalbeattie Forest and other Forestry Commission land enjoying an enviable number of footpaths and ideally suited to those interested in country pursuits.

The village of Colvend with its village shop is about a mile away and the "Granite Town" of Dalbeattie is approximately 4 miles away and offers primary and secondary schooling, shopping and town amenities. The original bungalow which was built in approximately 1963 has been extensively refurbished in recent years to offer a very spacious, bright, airy and manageable modern family home set in good sized private garden grounds. The property is in excellent decorative order throughout and should be viewed to be fully appreciated.

From Dalbeattie on the western extremity of the town take the A710 coast road, proceed on this route through Barnbarroch, past Kippford caravan park and as one approaches the hamlet of Auchensheen one sees a round roadside visibility mirror on the right hand side of the road whereupon turn left taking the lane between the two cottages, following the lane for approximately 200 yards and Barrochlea presents as the 4th property on the left.
