Waterside Cottage, Sanquhar, Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway is the forgotten corner of Scotland with everything the highlands have only in a small area, making the whole region very accessible. Waterside Cottage is set in an idyllic location on the banks of the River Nith, with a great view of the river and the peaceful surrounding countryside. This beautiful stone cottage has been imaginatively converted from a traditional barn and stables.

Waterside Cottage overlooks two salmon pools, one just outside and a second just 200 metres up river where the River Crawick joins the Nith - perfect for fisherfolk! A wealth of other activities are available in this scenic area. The cottage is situated metres from the Southern Upland Way and provides an ideal base for walking, bird watching, salmon and trout fishing, golfing on the local course or at world famous Troon or Turnberry, as well as canoeing on the River Nith (some of the best white-water in Scotland) or gold panning in the scenic Mennock Valley.

The cottage is adjacent to Blackaddie House Hotel where you will find a cosy well-stocked bar with a good array of single malts for you to try. This boutique country house hotel has an award-winning restaurant which is another big attraction for staying at this cottage!
