Douglas House sits in a central position on Queen Street, one of the main arteries through the popular market town of Castle Douglas. Castle Douglas is famed for its collection of individual shops and businesses, a characteristic that led to its being designated Dumfries & Galloway’s Food Town. In addition, there is a primary school, a secondary school, swimming pool and gym, a number of hotels and restaurants, as well as a large health centre and small cottage hospital. Perennially popular with tourists, Castle Douglas is a great base for accessing the excellent hill walking, cycling, shooting, fishing and equestrian pursuits that the region has to offer. The nearby Galloway Forest Park offers stunning countryside, history and the UK’s first designated Dark Sky Park. There are mainline railway stations at Dumfries and Lockerbie, ferry services to Northern Ireland at Cairnryan near Stranraer, whilst international airports are available in Glasgow and Edinburgh, both around 2 hours’ drive.
