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. These charming Sanquhar holiday homes were originally the farm dairy and granary and have been developed into two attractive cottages, both with open outlooks. 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. The nearby village of Sanquhar offers many facilities, including shops, bars, an arts centre and the claim to the oldest working Post Office in the world at 300 years and counting. With fishing and bird watching on your doorstep and the renowned 7stanes mountain biking complex a short drive away, these Sanquhar cottages are in the ideal location to explore the countryside.

About the location


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 modern swimming pool with attached fitness centre, and the A’ The Airts Arts Centre, which showcases a wide variety of local and regional 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 and offers a wide range of family and outdoor activities throughout the year. Sanquhar is virtually encircled by hills with the Carsphairn and Scaur range to the west and the Lowther Hills to the south east. The Southern Upland Way, a 212 mile coast-coast walking path, passes through the village. Mountain bikers too are well-served by waymarked trails at Drumlanrig Castle and the 7stanes trail at Ae Forest, not to mention many local tracks and forest roads. With direct rail access to/from Glasgow and Carlisle, Sanquhar has much to offer throughout the year.
