Marion Currie, handling the sale for Galbraith in the Castle Douglas office, said: “Muiryhill Bothy is a fantastic two-bedroom property offering the perfect base for those keen to explore the beautiful Dumfriesshire area and all it has to offer. Being located close to attractive and bustling local villages whilst only a short drive from the regional capital of Dumfries, the property benefits from being rural yet easily accessible.

“The area is well served with a wide range of amenities, good local schooling both primary and secondary, as well as local campuses of both Glasgow University and the University of the West of Scotland located in Dumfries. This makes the bothy an attractive opportunity for a young family looking to relocate to a lovely rural location where they can put down roots. It would likewise appeal to a young professional looking for a great work life balance, given Glasgow is only 57 miles away, meaning breakfast to boardroom can be achieved in just over an hour.”
