HEALTH AND SAFETY
Strictly under no circumstances should any of the buildings be entered due to their derelict state. Care should be taken underfoot when investigating the site as there is rubble, waste and broken glass, as well as uneven ground.
Salmonhall Cottages are located just outside the quiet Dumfriesshire village of Dornock. Famous for the Battle of Dornock in the Scottish Wars of Independence in 1333, Dornock is situated about two miles east of Annan and 16 miles from the city of Carlisle. The sand and mud banks of the Solway Firth are less than a mile away and the railway between Annan and Gretna is just north of the village. Annan has a good range of shops, schools and services and has excellent road and rail access. The M6 motorway can be reached in approximately ten minutes whilst the main line railway station in Carlisle is only 25 minutes by road. The fastest train to London Euston takes approximately 3 ¼ hours. There is also a railway station in Annan. The Airports of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle are all within about one and a half hours’ drive. Carlisle Airport will also be re-opening to passenger flights in the near future. The area offers boundless opportunities for the outdoor enthusiasts. These include salmon and sea trout fishing on the nearby Rivers Nith, Annan and Border Esk as well as trout fishing on Dumfriesshire’s numerous lochs and rivers. There are a number of excellent golf courses nearby in addition to the Seven Stanes mountain bike centres of Ae, Newcastleton and Dalbeattie. The mild climate which the area benefits from is ideal for gardeners and length of the growing season allows for a great variety of plants to flourish.
