    This beautiful Estate is approximately 6 miles long and 3 miles wide and is set in the heart of the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area. The whole area is full of fascinating wildlife, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Wildlife Trust have reserves adjacent to Rusko and the mountain wilderness of the Galloway Forest Park and the Merrick stretches away to the north. The whole Estate is very hilly, going from 100 feet above sea level at Rusko House to 1000 feet at the top of Kenlum hill.

    The River Fleet, a very attractive spate river, makes the boundary on the east side with a track running beside it all the way from Nether Rusko to the Pool of Ness. Loch Ornockenoch lies in the centre of the southern part with a lovely old drove road linking it to Upper Rusko - both make wonderful walks. Rusko House (where the tennis court, Garden Cottage and wildlife garden are situated) is a large 18th century mansion house set in an informal garden of magnificent rhododendrons and lovely mature trees.

    Rusko Estate is near lovely sandy beaches in one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas. With loch and river fishing; all weather tennis court. Rusko is ideally placed in the centre of this beautiful, unspoilt and undiscovered region of Scotland for touring or relaxing and for enjoying the wonderful walking, cycling, horse riding, sailing and wildlife watching - making this the perfect "get away from it all" break for people of all ages and interests.
