Fishing Cottage, Sanquhar, Dumfries and Galloway

Fishing Cottage is part of a group of three beautiful stone cottages, carefully converted from an attractive traditional barn and stables to lovely holiday cottages. Dumfries & Galloway is a very beautiful, rural part of Scotland and the holiday cottages are set on the River bank, with gorgeous views overlooking John Kerr Pool, a salmon pool just 100 metres up river).

Dumfries is a wonderful part of Scotland for a holiday: from the cottage you can walk through the beautiful valleys and watch the abundant wildlife (including red squirrels). It is a very unspoilt area and there are far fewer tourists here then in most of the rest of Scotland. There is so much to see and do in the area - Drumlanrig Castle, Maxwellton House (home of Annie Laurie), Caerlaverock Castle, and the stunning Solway Coast. Robert Burns lived in the area and there are many places to visit associated with him. The local village of Thornhill (15 minutes away) is very attractive and has friendly craft shops, boutiques and restaurants serving local Scottish food.

The cottages are adjacent to Blackaddie House Hotel where you will find a good array of single malts in the cozy bar for you to try. This boutique country house hotel has an award-winning restaurant which is another big attraction for staying at Fishing cottage!
