Rowan Cottage is a charming holiday home just seconds from the Nith Estuary where dolphins and porpoises can often been seen. The cottage is in the heart of the historic village of Glencaple and was built in 1880 for a ship’s captain during times when the historic port was extremely busy. The historic quay still remains today. The property has been carefully renovated to a very good standard, is light and airy with a large open plan living area with Karndean flooring, and is ideal for friends and families. The kitchen/dining area also features Karndean flooring. A morning cup of tea is best enjoyed in the sun room looking down the road to the estuary.
Nestled within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is only 3 miles to Caerlaverock Castle and Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve, which is home to the rare natterjack toad and regularly visited by barnacle geese and other migrating birds. Rowan Cottage is an ideal base for exploring this wonderful area either by car, cycle or on foot, with excellent marked walks for all abilities, the Mabie Forest mountain bike tracks and 7Stanes are nearby. There is excellent salmon fishing on the River Nith and several excellent golf courses in the area, including the championship course at Southerness and several courses in Dumfries itself. Beach 100 yards. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 250 yards.
