The region has a fascinating history and contains historic buildings of national importance including Culzean, Caerlaverock and Drumlanrig Castles. The cottage is the perfect location for outdoor activities: there are many miles of quiet country roads for cycling, off-road routes for mountain-bikers, a wide range of walks, horse riding, water sports, fishing and golf. Wildlife enthusiasts are particularly encouraged. Because of the varied range of habitats, the region has an exceptional biodiversity including Red Squirrel, Red Deer, Otter, Pine Marten, Black Grouse, Puffin, Gannet, Osprey, Hen Harrier and even two resident pairs of Golden Eagle (over 34 species alone have been recorded in the Thrums garden). Just half a mile from the sea, the cottage is a 30 minute walk to the secluded beach of the Red Haven and at low tide one can explore Heston island. With only fields and woods directly behind the house, one can find one's way by path or open moorland onto the summit of Bengairn (1283 ft) to get glorious views of the wonderful Galloway countryside. One of the most picturesque villages in South West Scotland, Auchencairn is a miles walk away and has a Post Office Shop. The village is situated equi-distant between Castle Douglas and the "Artist's Town" of Kirkcudbright, hence shopping for groceries or gifts is only a 20 minute drive. Some significant events in the area include: The Wickerman Festival ( July) Stranraer Show Spring Fling Arts Festival Dumfries and Galloway Agricultural show The Galloway County Fair The Wigtown Show Kirkcudbright Tattoo The Flounder Tramping Festival Getting AroundNearest airport - Glasgow Prestwick (50 miles from the cottage) Nearest railway stations are - Dumfries (20 miles away) and Lockerbie (28 miles).

In an age when consumers are often given conflicting advice about what food is good for them and which constituents they should avoid, it is refreshing that Castle Douglas offers high quality local produce which everyone can enjoy. It is also of great economic benefit that the raw materials produced by local farmers get added value from being processed here and sold here.
