A weekend stay for up to six people in the luxury self-catering accommodation.

Ghillies Cottage lies just five miles from the charming villages of Thornhill and Moniaive, where you can find good quality local produce to take home, or enjoy eating in one of the several café’s, restaurants and bars. Further afield lie Carlisle (60 miles), Edinburgh (70 miles) and Glasgow (65 miles). The cottage enjoys an idyllic South facing position with is own large garden, and lies within our own farmland with the farmhouse being half a mile away. We would like guests to feel free to walk over the farm land without restriction (pets being kept on a lead near any livestock). Farm tours can also be arranged.

If you are looking for a relaxing break in Dumfries and Galloway then Ghillies Cottage can offer you a quiet retreat set in lovely rolling farmland with a touch of elegance and style. Our luxurious holiday cottage is located close to Thornhill, which is a bustling and attractive village. The pattern of broad streets provide excellent views through the village and bring an unusual feeling of spaciousness.

Just two miles north of Ghillies self catering cottage is Drumlanrig Castle. A Douglas stronghold existed here in the 1300s, but today's castle was built as one of Scotland's first and grandest renaissance buildings by William Douglas, 1st Duke of Queensberry, in 1691. The castle is surrounded by a 120,000 acre estate and remains home to the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry

The cottage is bounded by river Nith and Scaur Water which are excellent fishing for Salmon and Trout in the winter months. So Ghillies cottage is excellent for fishing holidays in Scotland.

We also provide guests with a welcome hamper for our guests and menu of locally made organic meals, allowing you to order delicious meals which will be delivered to your door." 

50% of the Sale value will go to the Heather Trust.
