Nearby Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town lying approximately 18 miles southwest of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities in a town now promoted and known as the ¿Food Town

The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline.
