Description

This beautifully restored, detached farmhouse sits in an elevated position, on a working farm next to the owners’ home, with views over open countryside to the sea beyond. Larroch Farmhouse is within walking distance of the unspoilt beaches and rocky coves of Monreith Bay and St Medan golf links and close to the town of Whithorn, a former Royal Burgh, providing a variety of small shops, galleries, tea rooms and a pub.
Situated in the heart of Galloway amidst some of the finest scenery in southern Scotland, the farmhouse is ideally located to explore the breathtaking scenery and areas of natural beauty, wilderness and romance. From the Galloway Hills and the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park, with their many hidden lochs, burns and waterfalls, to the beautiful Solway coastline with sandy beaches, rocky coves and picturesque villages to explore. Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest local reserve in the UK. It has internationally recognised numbers of pink-footed geese, greylag geese and many species of duck and wading birds visiting in autumn and winter. Visit the Interpretation Centre where you can view the Galloway Ospreys by video camera during their nesting season (April to August), or the local wetlands for the rest of the year.
Visit Wigtown, 13 miles away, officially designated as Scotland’s National Book Town and is a book lovers haven with numerous book shops. Enjoy browsing around the high quality gift shops, small gallery, excellent plant nursery and many cafés.
The southern Scotland regions boast an exceptional number of absorbing activities, whatever you’re after from spending a quiet afternoon with a rod and reel beside one of the area’s many excellent rivers, or pushing yourself to the limit along a challenging 7Stanes cycle track. Horse riding, golf, sailing, diving and numerous walks are available in the area and, with its famously mild climate and the balmy influence of the Gulf Stream, Galloway is home to some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens.

About the local area

The unspoilt beauty of this south west corner of Scotland is the perfect antidote to the hurly burly of modern life. Here there are deserted beaches, magnificent forests, rugged moors and beautiful lochs, all unblemished and untouched by tourism. But Dumfries and Galloway is not only perfect for chilled-out holidays, if you want a bit more action you can also find a range of activities and sports, from walking and cycling to golf and fishing.

To the west of the region is the quiet market town of Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree. This is a popular area for walkers and cyclists with open rolling countryside and close by to the Galloway Forest Park. In contrast with gentle scenery of the Solway Firth the Galloway Hills to the north has beautiful moors, mountains, lakes and rivers, with at its heart the Galloway Forest Park, some 150,000 acres of forest land with waymarked trails that are ideal for trekking and cyclists.

Formal gardens and country parks can be found throughout this area, the foremost of which is Threave Garden and Castle just south of Castle Douglas along the shores of Loch Carlingwark, renowned for its horticultural gardens and woodland covering some sixty acres. To the north of the town Loch Ken provides for more strenuous activities such as waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing.

To the south are the sandy coves and estuarine mudflats of the Solway Firth. The charming coastal resort of Kirckcudbright sits half way along the coast and was once a busy shipping port but now has a more tranquil atmosphere. Further east The Colvend coast has some lovely stretches of coastline and coastal villages providing moorings for visiting yachts and boat hire.

Inland on the River Nith, Dumfries is the regions largest town and a great base from which to explore the whole area. The town is also renowned for its associations with Robert Burns who spent the last five years of his life here.
