In a lovely situation just 7 miles from Dumfries to the north and Southerness sands on the Solway Firth to the south, the Bothy at Troston is a charming and imaginative conversion of an old stone-built bothy, standing high on a hill with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The living area is open-plan, with a well-fitted kitchen area, dining area and sitting area with wood burning stove. The double bedroom has zip-link beds for total versatility.
This easily accessible corner of Scotland holds many attractions for the visitor. At New Abbey (2m shop, pubs) there is lovely Sweetheart Abbey with Caerlaverock Castle, the ‘castle of the lark’, across the bay. Walkers can join the Southern Upland Way 25 miles away at Dalry. There are numerous golf courses, fishing, sailing, bird watching, riding – the list is endless.
