Drumjin was originally a farm steading associated with the Ravenstone Castle Estate which is now a hamlet and this small holding is part of a small cluster of three dwellings in a very quiet and rural area, accessed along a stone track off a quiet minor classified road. Ravenstone is around 4 miles from Whithorn in the attractive Whithorn Peninsula which is locally known as The Machers. Whithorn is a small traditional town with interesting historical and archaeological buildings and remains. Nearby is a lovely coastline with many pleasant walks and much wildlife to include excellent sandy beaches at Monreith and a more dramatic rocky coastline at the Isle of Whithorn. Most local facilities are available in Whithorn with a greater range of amenities available in Dumfries, Stranraer, Newton Stewart or Wigtown. Wigtown is also renowned as Scotland's Book Town with an annual literary festival. For directions from Wigtown, follow the A746 south towards Whithorn and turn right for Ravenstone. There is a right turning into the former castle grounds by a lodge cottage along a stone surfaced track. When Keeper's Cottage is reached, you bear left and follow the track to Drumjin, as for the Location Plans. For Sat Nav purposes please use DG8 8DS although this will lead you to the Ravenstone Castle and not direct to Drumjin itself.

The property has mains electricity and a private water supply via a spring, pump and filter. Sewerage is to a private sewerage tank and there is an oil fired central heating system to radiators throughout the principal accommodation with under floor heating in the bathroom. The windows are PVC double glazed and there is a well in the rear garden which can be pumped and utilised.
