This is a beautiful corner of Galloway enjoying a uniquely pleasant climate. Along the coast in either direction there are sandy beaches easy of access. Landward, the countryside is agricultural while towards the hills the scene is of heather and moorland stream.
The Grange (view shown on right) is situated two and a half miles south of the harbour town of Kirkcudbright, which has an indoor swimming pool, good shops and a choice of places for eating out at reasonable cost. You can admire the 16th century ruins of Maclellan's Castle and stroll along the old High Street with its Georgian buildings and picturesque closes. The town was the centre of a distinguished artists' colony well into the 20th century. This is reflected in the museums and galleries of the town.
The Grange is a mid-nineteenth century country house commanding an excellent view westward of Kirkcudbright Bay. In its four acres of well-maintained garden, lawns and woodland the peaceful setting has been preserved. Recently discovered cup-and-ring markings are a feature within the grounds. The sea lies two fields distant. Lawn tennis, croquet and a barbecue are available.
