Only minutes away from the historic town of Dumfries, Ridge View is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful region. The open plan living area offers a great space to entertain, with a choice between a sleek breakfast bar seating 3 or a more traditional dining table which looks out across the glen. Alternatively, for lovers of al fresco dining, patio doors lead onto a decking area complete with seating and gas BBQ.
Just a short stroll away is Alderneuk Fishery, an attractive and well stocked three-acre fly-only loch holding good sized rainbow, blue, brown and tiger trout. Fishing can be booked by contacting the owners direct.
Nearby Dumfries offers all the facilities that you would expect of a town including Ice Rink, Swimming Pool, a range of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs and major Supermarkets, some of which offer delivery. The local farmshop, Kilnford Barns and nearby Parry Fruit & Veg also both deliver to the lodge.
Scotland’s rich history can be fully explored in Dumfries and the surrounding area with sites connected to Robert the Bruce; Robert Burns with connections to numerous sites in the town and his farm, Ellisland just 5 miles to the north at Holywood. The town has more recent literary connections. The gardens of Moat Brae House were ‘enchanted lands’ to J.M.Barrie which inspired the world of Peter Pan. Moat Brae is now an excellent visitor centre open to the public to inspire the Peter Pan in everyone (you are never too old to be enchanted). For the children, Ridge View is approximately 15 minutes away from Mabie Farm Park, Dalscone Farm Park, with many other attractions within easy reach.
Dumfries is well-placed to enjoy wildlife-watching, walking and hill-walking, golf, visiting gardens and exploring Caerlaverock Castle and Sweetheart Abbey. There is a wide variety of locations to experience, including forests, coastal areas and sandy beaches.
