          Ferndale Studio lies at the end of the quiet conservation village of Durisdeer, at the feet of the Lowther hills where endless beautiful walks begin a few yards from the front door. Ferndale provides comfortable studio accommodation for one or two people and is ideal for anyone who is looking for a quiet space in a wonderful part of Scotland or who wants to take advantage of the many outdoor pursuits the region has to offer. The self-contained studio cottage has a spacious maple-floored room with a full length picture window which has views to the garden, the historic churchyard and the hills. Please note there is no separate bedroom. There is a comfortable double bed, and an Ikea mini-kitchen - equipped with sink, two-ring hob, microwave and fridge. In the bathroom is a three-piece suite with an electric Mira shower over the bath. Oil-fired central heating; LCD TV with FreeSat and free Wi-Fi (please note we have a very slow rural connection - it is not possible to use streaming services). The garden, situated just above the Carron Water, overlooks the beautiful 18th century church, historic churchyard and the hills. The lawn is cut in the shape of a labyrinth, an ancient form of decoration used for meditation. There are golf courses nearby, including the world's highest course in Wanlockhead, and the Nith Valley is a popular place for fishermen, mountain bikers, hill walkers, history and art enthusiasts. Field sports are enjoyed on the moors and woodlands on Drumlanrig Estate. The village of Thornhill is a 10 minute drive away and offers a wide and varied range of good quality shops, services and places to eat and drink as well as some great historical places of interest and art trails. The village of Durisdeer lies above the Carron Water and at the feet of the Lowther Hills in the tranquil and beautiful area of Nithsdale. Here the River Nith cuts a wide and dramatic path through the hills on its journey to the Solway and is a haven for fishermen, field sport enthusiasts, hill walkers, mountain bikers or anyone wishing to get away for some peace and quiet in an inspirational setting. The village itself forms part of the Buccleuch and Queensberry duchy and is dominated by an ancient parish church built in 1720. Inside the churchyard is the last resting place of several prominent Covenanters, and includes the Marty's grave of Daniel McMichael, shot dead in 1665 for 'praying unto God and not to men'. Adjoining the church is the Queensberry Aisle, burial place of the dukes, and an awe-inspiring sculptured marble monument by Jan van Nost to the second Duke (1662-1711) and Mary, his duchess. The remains of the Roman road, which once passed through the village as a direct route from Nithsdale to Clydesdale, can still be seen as well as can a Roman fort, located about a mile up the Well Path (popular with hill walkers) to the north-east of the village. Here the defensive ditch and rampart are clearly visible. Six miles away from this peaceful rural haven lies the Ducal village of Thornhill. Set on either side of the village cross, the Pegasus emblem of the Buccleuch and Queensberrys, is a range of shops, pubs and restaurants which all offer excellent fare and wares at reasonable prices. Thornhill also has a good golf course. Another two miles away is Penpont, home to international artist Andy Goldsworthy and once the home of African explorer Joseph Thomson. There are a number of Goldsworthy's sculptures around the vicinity and there is now a Joseph Thomson museum in the village. Further along the Moniaive road, and dominating the horizon, is Tynron Doon, the site of an early Iron Age hill fort which was used by the Romans as an outpost. Dumfries, the region's capital and 'Queen of the South', lies just 16 miles south of Thornhill and provides all retail and nourishment needs. Steeped in history, the town was where Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns, lived and died as well as where Robert the Bruce and his men put paid to the royal ambitions of The Red Comyn. JM Barry got his inspiration for his celebrated children's character Peter Pan here and the town continues to inspire historians, artists, writers, artisans and travellers. There are many places of interest in Dumfries, including the museum and camera obscurer, an aviation museum, Robert Burn's house, mausoleum and favourite 'howffs', as well as Scotland's oldest working theatre, the Theatre Royal, which is also a favourite haunt of the town's regular ghost tour. Head north out of Durisdeer for a couple of miles and you will come to the 17th century seat of the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry. Drumlanrig Castle provides a varied day for visitors inside its 90,000 acre estate, with a wide range of walks and mountain bike trails, workshops and shops in the stable yard, a tearoom, stunning landscaped gardens, tours, field sports and a chance to see one of the country's most prestigious art collections. Further north along the River Nith is the Royal Burgh of Sanquhar which, until recently, boasted the world's oldest post office. Here visitors will find a wealth of local shops, eateries and pubs along the high street, the closest train station to Durisdeer, and the impressive ruins of a 15th century castle.
