A really well equipped, cosy, very clean property in a quiet location surrounded by stunning walks. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our dogs. Local shops are within easy walking distance and the town itself has lots of history and plenty to see and do. I'd recommend this holiday rental to anyone! Excellent!

Stayed in accommodation for 3 nights. Home from Home all amenities at hand. The enclosed garden was spot on for the Gracie our dog and the gardens were well looked after.
Excellent stay. Would recommend to friends.

“Lovely Accommodation”

This was our second short visit to Viewforth Cottage which is a lovely bungalow, well maintained both inside and out and situated close to all local amenities. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We took our dogs with us and the extra 'field' area was excellent as an exercise area although there are also many lovely short walks near to the house. It is well equipped and comfortable, and with an extremely efficient heating system very quickly becomes cosy. We much appreciated being able to have a short break in September, rather than a week, and certainly hope to return again at some point.

We have been coming to Scotland for the last 13 years. We count grouse for the Buccleuch estate and are based in Leadhills. ViewFort cottage is by far our best accommodation to date; comfortable,clean excellent facilities, within walking distance of shops pubs and restaurants.

Booked this as we were going to the nearby thornhill music festival. We could not have asked for a better accomodation. The rooms were all a good size and the facilities where all clean and fresh. There was off street parking for the cars as well. The bed rooms were nice and comfy. We can definitely recommend this cottage

Just returned from a great stay at Viewforth, no complaints at all, was met by owner at cottage and was made very welcome, felt very much at ease and Caroline explained the workings of our holiday home. Calling it a cottage does not start to describe it, everything you need and more, Central heating, WiFi, washing machine, dishwasher etc etc etc . Gardens to die for, parking aplenty, great views over loch and even three Shetland ponies grazing at bottom of garden. Ideally situated for town 5 mins walk, surrounding area wonderful for visiting in car or lovely walks. Cannot say again how much we enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend, FIVE stars all the way .
