South Cowshaw Farm is situated about 7 miles northeast of Dumfries just off the A701 and only about 9 miles distant from the A74 (M). The property occupies an elevated site and benefits from stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and hills beyond.

SOUTH COWSHAW FARM

South Cowshaw is an exceptional former dairy farm. The farm benefits from a traditional farmhouse, modern and traditional farm buildings and about 237.22 acres of agricultural land. The agricultural land is down to grass for grazing and conservation (silage or hay), however the land is capable of growing a wide range of cereal and other forage crops. South Cowshaw also benefits from a farm bungalow, which is set in its own garden grounds and affords stunning views across the open countryside.

South Cowshaw boasts excellent communications and commuting links with both Glasgow and Edinburgh a little over an hour’s drive north and with the M74 adjoining the M6 at Gretna, the property is within commuting distance of some of the major centres. There is a main line railway station at Lockerbie & Dumfries, which runs a full timetable of services both north and south.
