SITUATION
Townhead Old Cottage represents a rare opportunity to acquire a traditional Galloway cottage in a rural location only a few miles from Kirkcudbright.

The nearby harbour town of Kirkcudbright, also known as Scotland’s Artists Town, is very popular with tourists, particularly in the summer months with a varying range of festivities and events. The town provides a range of services including: two small supermarkets and individual specialist shops, parish church, library, doctor’s surgery, optician, a cottage hospital, two veterinary practices, swimming pool, tennis court, bowling green, as well as primary and secondary schools. There are delightful river side walks as well as a renowned “blue-flag” marina providing excellent sailing facilities. The nearby market town of Castle Douglas also has a good range of shops, and other services. The regional capital of Dumfries, about 40 minutes drive has a broader range of shops, retail outlets and services including: the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary and the Crichton Campus providing further education courses.

Communications to the area are very good. There are railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie, and the M74 motorway can be reached in about 45 minutes. Regular flights to parts of the UK and Ireland as well as continental Europe depart from Prestwick Airport, which is 68 miles to the north. Both Edinburgh and Glasgow with their international airports are appropriate 111 and 127 miles respectively by motorway routes.
