Full description

A well- proportioned detached bungalow, occupying a substantial corner plot in an elevated site. The property enjoys a quiet spot on the edge of the town of Kirkcudbright, conveniently sited to the town centre facilities and amenities.
The harbour town of Kirkcudbright, also known as Scotland's Artists Town, is very popular with tourists, particularly in the summer months with a varying range of festivities and events including an annual Arts and Crafts Trail, Jazz festival, and a popular farmers market runs throughout the year. The town provides a range of services including: two small supermarkets and individual specialist shops, parish church, museum, library, doctor's surgery, optician, bank, a cottage hospital, two veterinary practices, swimming pool, tennis court, bowling green, as well as a primary and secondary school. The harbour is a main feature in the centre of the town, and there are delightful river sidewalks as well as a renowned "blue-flag" marina providing excellent sailing facilities. The nearby market town of Castle Douglas also has a good range of shops, and other services, and is designated Scotland's Food Town. The regional capital of Dumfries, about 29 miles distant, offers a wider range of shops, retail outlets and services including the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, cinema, and the Crichton Campus providing further education courses, and railway station.

The Southwest of Scotland is well known for its mild climate, attractive unspoilt countryside and abundance and diversity of its recreational and sporting pursuits, such as shooting, stalking, as well as trout and salmon fishing on the region's numerous rivers and lochs. A wide variety of beaches, coastal paths and beautiful walks are within easy reach of the property. There are water sports and sailing on nearby Loch Ken as well as on the Solway, along with excellent hill walking in the nearby Galloway Hills and cycling along some of the numerous cycle routes, as well as a nationally renowned network of mountain biking routes in the hills and forest parks making up the Seven Stanes centres. The Galloway Forest Park well known for its beauty and tranquillity is also recognised as Britain's First Dark Sky Park, and provides astronomers phenomenal views of the stars with a newly opened Observatory. For golf enthusiasts there is an 18 hole course in the town as well as several courses within a short driving distance, and the Championship course at Southerness on the picturesque Solway Coast.

Communications to the area are very good, with a regular daily bus service from the town, and railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie. The M74 motorway is about 51 miles distant allowing easy access north and south. Regular flights to parts of the UK and Ireland as well as continental Europe depart from Prestwick Airport, which is 65 miles to the north. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh with their international airports are 97 and 107 miles respectively. A daily ferry service to Northern Ireland operates with Stenna Link from Cairnryan 52 miles to the west, close to Stranraer.
