About the location
Excellent for walking and birdwatching ; darks skies make it an astronomers dream. Close to sea, lochs hills and nature reserves. Unspoilt quiet countryside and coastline abounds. Near to historic churches castles etc. Hadrians wall is not too far away. 20 mins drive to Dumfries with museums etc and about 35 mins to historic Carlisle. Total tranquillity but not far from the shops!
