SITUATION South Drummoddie is situated in a quiet rural area of southwest Scotland, 4.3 miles from the village of Whauphill, and less than 10 miles from Scotland’s National Booktown, Wigtown. South Drummoddie is also within a short distance of two very picturesque bays, Luce Bay to the west and Wigtown Bay to the east. Wigtown hosts an annual book festival in late September and the town becomes a hub of activity as people come to listen to authors, visit the many bookshops, eat in the cafés and wander through the ‘Kist’ with stalls displaying work made by local artists and craftspeople. Wigtown has a primary school, church and chapel, post office, supermarket, a number of smaller shops and Scotland’s southernmost distillery is in nearby Bladnoch. Newton Stewart is the nearest town, a market town on the River Cree known as the Gateway to the Galloway Hills. Newton Stewart has a number of primary schools, the Douglas Ewart High School, a museum, leisure centre, three supermarkets, a post office, cinema and a wide range of shops, offices, businesses, hotels, restaurants and a modern distillery.
