Marwhirn House

Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

spacer line

There are five holiday properties to offer you in this superb Scottish location in Dumfriesshire: these self catering cottages, which form part of the 3,300-acre Crofts Estate, are mid-way between the villages of Crocketford, Corsock and Kirkpatrick Durham in Dumfriesshire. The county town of Dumfries is 10 miles away.

Standing 600 feet above sea level on the edge of the Galloway hills, some of the holiday properties enjoy spectacular views towards Solway Firth Cambrian hills beyond. A superb location for an outdoor break in the Scottish countryside, holiday guests are welcome to roam freely through the Estate's woodland walks, fields and upland pastures. Features include the Martyrs Memorial, 3 lochs and a prehistoric fort. Fly fishing is available exclusively for guests on Areeming Loch.

The properties are hung with pictures from an important collection of contemporary Scottish painting. An article from the Mail on Sunday descri
bes Croft Estate, Crocketford, Dumfries and Marwhirn House as a 'Country Classic' and the Daily Telegraph comments: 'If excuses were needed to stop in the idyllic Borders, it would be one of the cottages on the Crofts Estate.'

One thing visitors should not miss
In this uncrowded and varied landscape, you’ll find many appealing towns and villages to visit. Famous for its salmon and trout fishing, Newton Stewart, on the banks of the River Cree, is the largest town. Within easy reach of the Galloway Forest Park, it’s popular with hikers and cyclists. To the south lies Wigtown, which hosts a national book festival every September. Two contrasting towns lie on the western Rhinns of Galloway peninsula: Stranraer, a main point of entry to Scotland for visitors from Northern Ireland, and the beguiling seaside resort of Portpatrick.
