Templand Cottage is part of a group of 6 gorgeous cottages, carefully converted from attractive old farm buildings. This is a very historic farm as the great 19th century writer Thomas Carlyle married Jane Welsh here, and he described the view as 'the finest in Scotland'. 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).

A major attraction of the cottage is an indoor swimming pool, sauna, games room and children's play area - there are also bicycles to borrow free of charge, as well as fishing rods and golf clubs.

Dumfries & Galloway is a very beautiful, rural part of Scotland and the holiday cottages are set admidst open fields, with gorgeous views. 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 is very attractive and has a good range of shops and restaurants.
