Full Description

The ancient Barony of Arbigland comprises farmland, woodland and foreshore on the Solway Firth coast bounded by the River Nith near Dumfries in the south west of Scotland.

With its outstanding natural beauty and rich diversity of wildlife the estate forms part of the Nith Estuary Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Upper Solway Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSI).

We can offer you some of the best holiday accommodation in Dumfries & Galloway.

From the luxury of the House on the Shore bed & breakfast accommodation to the simple comfort of our self catering log chalets, we can cater for every need.

Choosing places to stay is about location, location, location and with our private sandy beaches, spectacular scenery and prolific wildlife we have some of the best sea-side holiday cottages, traditional stone built cottages and log lodges in Scotland.

We are dog friendly and perfect for children. You can even arrange to bring your horse.

All except one of our holiday properties have log burning stoves for cosy winter breaks.  All our holiday properties have sea views.

We have the best pub in the area within walking distance.

The local area has a range of good pubs, shops and restaurants to enjoy, or just take advantage of the tranquillity.

Golf, fishing, 7stanes mountain biking, horse riding, bird watching, shooting (including wildfowling), stalking and hill walking can all be enjoyed locally (see the wide range of local activities available).

Some of our properties have disabled access (assisted wheelchair access). Please ask for advice on the most suitable cottage.

With over 30 beds across our self catering accommodation we can cater for large groups.
