Nestled in luscious grounds and gardens is this detached, cultural country home, ideal for large gatherings, Milnton is great for a rural Scottish adventure.

After an adventure-filled day, wander through the large walled garden which hold fishing rights to the nearby river, as well as a lovely decking area with a table for alfresco dining on a summer's day.

Step inside and be wowed by the regal interior, boasting themes of character through high ceilings, chandelier and antique-style furnishings.

Spend evenings indoors with your loved ones and let the chef of the group take charge in the well-equipped kitchen, rustling up hearty meals for the whole party which can be enjoyed casually in this room with a woodburning stove, or set the table for a more formal affair in the beautiful dining room, complete with a piano and library.

Join together in the spacious sitting room as you catch up over drinks at dusk, or cosy up for a family film night in front of the TV.

About the location

MONIAIVE

Thornhill 9 miles; Dumfries 17 miles.

Moniaive means ‘Hill of Streams’ in Gaelic, and the village itself occupies a wonderful location at the meeting of the three glens of Craigdarroch, Dalwhat and Castlefairn. Although planned by a local landowner in the 17th century, Moniaive has a history dating back to the 10th century, and the medieval street layout is still evident. The village has been dubbed ‘One of the coolest in Scotland’ by The Times, and today it is a bustling, thriving centre with a range of facilities including a fabulous Italian restaurant. There are many events throughout the year including the Moniaive Gala and festivals for beer, bluegrass and folk music. In the hills surrounding the village are the Striding Arches, a series of Andy Goldsworthy sculptures set in the landscape. Visiting these also offers some delightful walking in the spectacular scenery. This is a wonderful village for a holiday in Scotland.
