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.
