Lochside Farm Cottages

Situated up a farm track in the countryside outside Sanquhar, these two cottages are located next to the owner’s home, on a working livestock farm surrounded by miles of unspoilt scenery stretching to the Lowther Hills.

Each of these Sanquhar cottages has outdoor seating and a private grassed area to the rear. Both properties together can accommodate up to eleven people and are surrounded by spectacular Dumfries and Galloway countryside, and the Southern Upland Way passes within 200 yards of the properties.

About the location

SANQUHAR

Dumfries 26 miles; Ayr 31 miles; Kilmarnock 32 miles.

A former Royal Burgh, the town of Sanquhar sits on the River Nith in Dumfries and Galloway. The name derives from the Gaelic 'Seann Cathair', meaning 'Old Fort' and at the southern end of the town there can still be seen the ancient ruins of the castle. Robert Burns was a frequent visitor to Sanquhar and wrote many of his best known nature poems while inspired by the surrounding countryside. The town today boasts a selection of bars, shops and cafes, a 9 hole golf course, a swimming pool and the A’ The Airts Arts Centre, which showcases a wide variety of arts and crafts. In addition, the town lays claim to the oldest working Post Office in the world at 300 years and counting. Magnificent Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate lies only 10 miles to the south. Sanquhar is virtually encircled by hills with the Carsphairn and Scaur range to the west and the Lowther Hills to the south east. Mountain bikers have good access via a short drive to the 7stanes mountain bike trails. With rail access to Glasgow and Edinburgh and the journey lasting around an hour, Sanquhar has much to offer throughout the year.
