THE AREA
Between the hills of the Southern Uplands and the shore of the Solway Firth, Laurieston village is in a rural setting of farmland, forest and lochs in the valley of the rivers Dee and Ken, It is just a few miles off the A75 trunk road between Carlisle and Stranraer. A number of small towns nearby give plenty of choice for shopping or eating out.
> 6 miles from Castle Douglas “The Food Town”
> 9 miles from Kirkcudbright “The Artist’s Town”
> Gatehouse of Fleet and New Galloway both 9 miles away
> Eat local: cheeses, bakery, seafoods, fine meats, smoked fish & meats, preserves, chocolate, ice cream, and beer
> Farmers markets held regularly at several sites
> A rural economy with non-intensive land use means an unpolluted environment with masses of wildlife
> Large tracts of country are covered by forestry, wetlands and moorland, soaking up carbon dioxide
GALLOWAY HAS EVERYTHING
Galloway is crammed with opportunities for an active, or a more reflective, holiday. In the house we keep lots of brochures on tourist attractions of every kind
