  • "A little Gem in an idyllic setting!"

    Everything was perfect from start to finish. The cottage is truly beautiful and the views are spectacular; we couldn’t have wished for a better stay. The cottage was well equipped, spacious, clean and everything had been given attention to detail. Pauline and Derek couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. The little extras were a lovely gesture and so thoughtful. It was a fantastic holiday and we have made some lovely family memories which we will cherish. Thank you, Ian, Rachel, George & Star

    That is so kind of you, we are so happy you all enjoyed your holiday here in Dumfriesshire, it is an honour to have you choose to stay at Marr Cottage. Property Owner

About the location


Dumfries 15 miles; Ayr 42 miles; Glasgow 66 miles.

The quiet village of Thornhill is in the Mid Nithsdale area of Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland, and is an ideal place for a relaxing break. Surrounded by wonderful scenery and the low hills of Carsphairn and Lowther, there are plenty of opportunities to walk and cycle these ancient hills. In the centre of Thornhill village is a column supporting a majestic winged horse, which is the emblem of the Dukes of Queensberry who own the surrounding land and also the magnificent Drumlanrig Castle. Set on an 80,000 acre estate comprising a country park and Victorian gardens, Drumlanrig Castle is regarded as one of the finest examples of late 17th century Renaissance architecture in Scotland and also boasts an internationally renowned art collection. Thornhill’s location means that it is ideal for a day trip to the seaside at Ayr or a day’s shopping and sightseeing in cosmopolitan Glasgow.
