Pretty Dumfriesshire farmhouse with exceptional rural views

Location

Gillbrae Farmhouse occupies a prime rural location with beautiful open aspects over farmland and beyond to the Solway Firth and as far as the Lake District/Lakeland Fells. The property has carefully maintained mainly lawned gardens to the front with courtyard gardens to the rear.
The nearest and by far the largest local village is Clarencefield which has a pub and also operates a sub post office and a village hall which has numerous events throughout the year. The nearby town of Dumfries provides a wide range of facilities including schools, a newly built hospital, a wide range of shops, sports clubs and professional services. The M74 and M6 provide excellent commuting to the north of England and Glasgow. There are railway stations at Lockerbie, Dumfries and Carlisle with a regular service to Glasgow and London.

The south west of Scotland is well known for its mild climate, attractive unspoilt countryside and abundance and diversity of recreational pursuits and field sports, including shooting, stalking as well as trout and salmon fishing on numerous rivers and lochs. A wide variety of beaches, coastal paths and beautiful walks are within easy reach. There are water sports and sailing on Loch Ken as well as on the Solway Firth, along with excellent hill walking and cycling along some of the numerous cycle routes. The 7stanes is a nationally renowned network of mountain biking trails in the hills and forest parks, linking seven mountain biking centres. In 2009 the International Dark Sky Association confirmed Dark Sky status on the Galloway Forest Park, the first area in Scotland to be so designated. There are several golf courses within easy travelling distance including the Championship course of Southerness on the picturesque Solway Coast.
