Where you’ll be

Castle Douglas, Scotland, United Kingdom

Argrennan Manor is a private estate surrounded by woods and farmland. Although secluded, we are equidistant from the nearest towns of Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas being only 4 miles away for all the amenities you may need.

Shire Cottage shares the main courtyard with Stable cottage next door where other guests may be staying. Other than that there are just farmland views to enjoy.

Argrennan House is a Neoclassical Georgian Manor and the centrepiece to the Argrennan Estate. Set within 50 acres of grounds there are 3 self cater properties available to hire. Situated an hour West from Gretna Green and only minutes from the A75 route through Dumfries and Galloway these homes make the perfect base from which to discover this green and peaceful part of Scotland, or even just a quick overnight stop on a long journey to Ireland or the Highlands. Set between the towns of Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas, we are a stones throw from the Stunning Solway Coastline and the Beautiful Galloway National Forest with plenty of History, Nature and Kids Activities on our doorstep too ! Alistair and Gail, the current custodians of Argrennan are very friendly and welcoming to all who come stay with us, and Mertin the miniature Jack Russell is always happy to have an extra pair of legs to take him for a walk down to the 2 acre walled garden or along the mile of tracks the encircle the estate. About me: Laid back and easy going. I am an Englishman living in a very quiet part of Scotland now for my work managing the Argrennan Estate, so I am always looking to escape to a not so nearby city to get socialised again. Photography graduate. I enjoy nights out, eating, running, and a colourful silk shirt.
