Small country estate in a secluded location in rolling countryside, beautifully tucked away between the Galloway Forest Park and Laurieston Forest.
Slogarie is beautifully tucked away between the Galloway Forest Park and Laurieston Forest just a short distance from the small settlement of Mossdale. Rolling countryside to Airie and Crae Hill beyond provides a stunning outlook to the south.
The nearby market town of Castle Douglas (10 miles distant) has a good range of shops, supermarkets and other services, and is designated Scotland's Food Town. The regional capital of Dumfries (about 25 miles away) offers a wider range of shops and services including the recently opened Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.
There are water sports and sailing on nearby Loch Ken as well as on the Solway, along with excellent hill walking in the nearby Galloway Hills and cycling along some of the numerous cycle routes, as well as a nationally renowned network of mountain biking routes in the hills and forest parks making up the Seven Stanes centres.
Communications to the area are very good, with a regular daily bus service from the town, and railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie.
