  • "Property is in a great location and well appointed."

    There are just a few things lacking - mirrors, chairs in living room, wardrobes need to be secured to the wall, a bigger bed in the double room, plug sockets are too low to the floor to plug items in.

    The cottage was spacious, yet cosy. We had a lovely stay just after Christmas.

  • "A very comfortable and clean cottage which was tastefully furnished and cosy."

    Thornhill has good facilities and a number of interesting shops and eateries. I was confused by the welcome email which talked about scanning the QR code in the property for 'track and trace' purposes. I never did find this code and I phoned the owner who had no knowledge of it!

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.
