Location:


Castle Douglas, as the nearest town, offers the benefits of a large town as there is both primary and secondary schooling, local shops and restaurants as well as large supermarkets. The south west of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. To the west of Crossmichael lies Galloway Forest Park, the largest forest park in Britain, covering 300 square miles of forested hills, wild and rugged moorland and numerous lochs. It is a vast and beautiful area crisscrossed by-way marked Forestry Commission trails and longer routes such as the Southern Upland Way. It is ideally located to take advantage of a number of outdoor pursuits and leisure activities and is also well placed for access to the town centre and all facilities with its own 9 hole golf course and the thriving Glenkens Community Arts Trust at the Catstrand nearby.** EPC RATING F**
