Ghillie's is a 5 star luxury self catering cottage. Situated just five miles from the charming village of Thornhill, it enjoys a south facing position in its own large enclosed garden. The cottage sits within our own farmland and farm tours can be arranged.

Ghillie's Cottage is a quiet retreat set in the rolling Galloway hills, with a touch of elegance and style.

Comfortably sleeping six, we can also offer two pull out beds. The cottage offers a very spacious living area with excellent facilities.

The local area offers a host of activities including off road walks, cycle hire or mountain biking and fishing. Drumlanrig Castle and country estate is only a couple of miles away where you can take a castle tour, explore the lovely gardens and woodland or let the children loose in the excellent adventure playground. There is also a very good tea room for grown ups!

Thornhill and nearby Moniaive have some lovely cafes, restaurants and bars and many nice quirky shops to explore.

Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Dumfries and Galloway, it really is a hidden gem.
