Mossdale is an attractive traditional farmhouse and cottage, with buildings and land occupying a beautiful rural situation in the Doon Valley.

The surrounding area is steeped in local history and industrial heritage. Dalmellington, about 1.5 miles, offers good local services, primary and secondary schooling, whilst the picturesque village of Casphairn is about 8 miles away. The County town of Ayr is 16 miles distant with an excellent range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, a hospital and cinema. Glasgow city centre, about 53 miles, can be reached in about an hour via the A/M77. Prestwick Airport, about 21 miles, has frequent international flights.

To the west, Loch Doon is about 7 miles long, and forms the gateway to the Galloway Forest Park, a popular destination for holidaymakers offering hill and forest walking and mountain biking. The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory is situated at Loch Doon, the Observatory is the only Dark Sky Park in the UK where the night skies are some of the best. At the foot of the loch, Loch Doon Castle was once built on an island. It was once owned by the Earls of Carrick and was transplanted to the mainland in 1935 to prevent its destruction by a hydro-electric scheme. Fishing is available on Loch Doon for brown trout and there are shingle beaches ideal for launching small boats or canoes.

Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous facilities at Turnberry. There are fine yachting facilities at the marinas at Troon and Ardrossan, and many opportunities for game sports in the county with some of south west Scotland’s best salmon and trout fishing available.
