Dumcrieff House, Moffat, Dumfries-shire
Dumcrieff House is a stunning Georgian mansion set within the secluded privacy of a country estate surrounded by beautiful countryside, away from noisy roads. In the southern uplands of Scotland, the location is easily accessed from north and south. Only five minutes' drive from the historic spa town of Moffat, which has many good shops, pubs and restaurants.
The surrounding area offers some great opportunities for walking. The Southern Upland Way, a 212 mile footpath between Portpatrick on the Galloway coast and Cockburnspath on the east coast of Scotland, runs through the outer edge of the estate’s own woodland on the east side of Moffat Water. There are also some great country walks in Craigieburn Forest which is about a mile from Dumcrieff. Cyclists will be happy too. There are many local cycle routes both on the 'all purpose road' alongside the M74 between Lockerbie and Abington, as well as the quiet country roads around the estate and Moffat. 7stanes - Ae Mountain Biking Trails – is nearby and a great draw for mountain bike enthusiasts.
Dumfriesshire has about 30 golf courses and Moffat Golf Club, which is 3 miles away, welcomes visitors and fishing can be booked on the Upper Annan just half a mile downstream from Dumcrieff House.
There are a host of activities which can be provided on estate grounds by fully qualified instructors. These activities must be booked in advance and include picnicking with Alpacas laser quest, kayaking, archery and Mini Highland Games Events. Croquet can set up on the front lawn during the summer months - lots of fun for all ages!
Alternatively you may wish to just put your feet up and watch a movie, take a gentle walk through the estate grounds, breathe the fresh air and enjoy the privacy, peace and tranquillity.
