    “We enjoyed our stay we found lots to do in the area and our cottage was great to come back to, it was cosy and clean, we liked the games and dvds, good for when it was raining!”

    And the owners were nice to have a chat with too. Our kids liked the seeing the chickens in the yard.

About the location


Annan 7 miles; Dumfries 10 miles.

The small village of Ruthwell is located between the towns of Annan and Dumfries on the Solway Firth in Dumfries and Galloway. The village was home to Dr. Henry Duncan who founded the world’s first commercial savings bank and the village is now home to the Savings Bank Museum. Just 7 miles away is the historic Royal Burgh of Annan which lies at the start of the Solway Coast Trail - a drive which takes you on quiet roads to a wealth of castles and abbeys of incredible beauty and interest. Once an important trading port, the town is made up of many traditional red stone buildings and boasts a rich history of ship building and fishing. Ten miles away from Ruthwell is Dumfries which is known as 'Queen of the South'. Founded as a Royal Burgh in 1186, the surrounding area contains many castles, abbeys and even a Tibetan Buddhist Centre. Many forests abound with excellent walking and cycling. Dumfries is also a good centre for touring the rest of the area - the spectacular triangular Caerlaverock Castle and its nature reserve; New Abbey and the Solway Coast - and a starting point for travelling west into the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and the rest of Galloway.
