This detached home was originally an agricultural building and was used by the community as a venue for meetings and dances for many years before its conversion. It enjoys a secluded position whilst still being close to the local amenities within the village of Kirkcowan.

The village of Kirkcowan is located approximately 7 miles to the west of Newton Stewart in the Machars district of Wigtownshire. With the A75 Euro route being only a few minutes drive to the north, there are easy links to the local towns of Stranraer and Newton Stewart and thereafter the major towns of Castle Douglas, Dumfries & Carlisle are all within a 2 hours drive as is the M6 motorway network. Kirkcowan has a village shop, post office, primary school, Church and pub and a vibrant local community. It is only 7 miles from Wigtown, Scotland’s book town and home to many literary events including its famous book festival.

The Dumfries and Galloway region is somewhat an unknown part of Scotland and offers a peaceful haven to either live or retire where many of life’s old fashioned values are still upheld. There is easy access to a wide range of leisure pursuits including hillwalking, sailing, canoeing, golfing, angling and other field sports to name but a few.
