Local attractions include Drumlanrig Castle, the home of the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry, and has a superb art collection, beautiful gardens and extensive country park. Nearby is Thornhill with shops, hotels and an 18-hole golf course, Mabie Farm Park with quad bikes, trampolines and astro turf slides.
Dumfries, dating back 800 years, has connections with the poet Robert Burns, and activities include Camera Obscura, cinemas, skating and swimming.
Further south is the remote triangular-shaped Caerlaverock Castle which dates back to 1270, with its mighty gatehouse and moat, and a nearby nature reserve. Amongst the protected salt marsh and mud flats there are many well-situated birdwatchers’ hides, which offer the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the rare natterjack toad or one of the thousands of barnacle geese which return in the winter.
The nearby Galloway Forest Park is famed for off-road cycling and walking with the Seven Stanes and National Cycle Network also passing nearby. Watersports available at Loch Ken.
