In the area to attend a wedding in the area. There was everything you could wish for in the cottage. We found the cottage spotless. Only a few minutes walk to the convenience store, fish & chip shop and pub. Lovely walks in the area, or an ideal base to explore the area. Dumfries House is a must which is around 30 minutes away. Near by is the Solway Coast and Ayrshire Coast, and for shopping Glasgow is on a hour away in the car, or if you prefare by train as Kirkconnel railway station is only a few minutes walk from cottage.
