These properties are part of the 3,300-acre Crofts Estate and are mid-way between the villages of Crocketford, Corsock and Kirkpatrick Durham. The county town of Dumfries is 10 miles away. Standing 600 feet above sea level on the edge of the Galloway hills, some of the properties enjoy spectacular views towards Solway Firth and Cumbrian hills beyond. Guests are welcome to roam freely through the Estate's woodland walks, fields and upland pastures.Features include the Martyrs Memorial, three lochs and a prehistoric fort. Fly fishing is available exclusively for guests on Areeming Loch. All the properties are hung with pictures from an important collection of contemporary Scottish painting.

One thing visitors should not miss
In this uncrowded and varied landscape, you’ll find many appealing towns and villages to visit. Famous for its salmon and trout fishing, Newton Stewart, on the banks of the River Cree, is the largest town. Within easy reach of the Galloway Forest Park, it’s popular with hikers and cyclists. To the south lies Wigtown, which hosts a national book festival every September. Two contrasting towns lie on the western Rhinns of Galloway peninsula: Stranraer, a main point of entry to Scotland for visitors from Northern Ireland, and the beguiling seaside resort of Portpatrick.
