About the location

An ideal location for exploring this quiet and wild corner of Dumfries and Galloway being close to Hadrian`s wall, Kielder Forest Dark Sky Observatory, Scenic drives to Solway coast on Scottish or Cumbrian side, the Lake District and Northumbria.

Great cycling and walking, bird watching and star gazing opportunities. Carlisle Castle and award winning Tullie House museum display the rich and violent past that have marked the landscape of the borderland disputes between Scotland and England.

Located in an `off the beaten track` corner of Dumfriesshire there is plenty to see and do.

A thriving community of artists and craftspeople live and work in this area continuing the traditions of weaving tweeds and tartans and celebrating the musical heritage with local pipe bands and events such as the Common Riding and Newcastleton Folk Festival.
