Gamekeepers Cottage, the former gamekeeper’s house for the Dunragit Estate, is set in an idyllic rural setting occupying an elevated site and on a clear day, benefits from distant sea views across to the Isle of Man, Luce Bay, and the Mull of Galloway. The location of the property is such, that it benefits from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream. Although within a rural setting, Gamekeepers Cottage is only a short drive to the main A75 Euroroute and the nearby towns of Newton Stewart and Stranraer.

Set amidst its own extensive grounds and manicured gardens amounting in total to around 3 acres, the property boasts a traditional and spacious sympathetically modernised three-bedroom dwellinghouse.

Adjacent to the Cottage is a large Bothy (with integral kennel) which is also a ‘C’ listed building. In addition, there are a range of other interesting buildings formerly used for pet boarding. Many of the subjects could have potential for change of use to form new dwellings or annexes. Any interested party wishing to pursue this should make their own enquiries with the regional council’s planning department.

The whole property presents a beautiful family home, with generous outside spaces and with huge potential for small-scale agricultural, equestrian purposes or lifestyle businesses. Alternatively, you can just simply enjoy the generous space, quality and flexibility the property and outbuildings offer.

Within walking distance of the property is Glenwhan Gardens, which been described as one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland hewn from rough moorland 40 about years ago. With the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, Glenwhan grows many tender plants from around the Southern Hemisphere, together with large collections of rare trees and shrubs. The tearoom at Glenwhan Gardens prides itself with its delicious home baking and warming homemade soups. The nearest local convenience store can be found at Glenluce.

GARDEN GROUNDS
Gamekeepers Cottage benefits from very generous garden grounds surrounding the whole property and are made up of neat lawns, mature trees, hedges and shrubs. The driveway leads to ample parking for several vehicles.

THE OUTBUILDINGS
There are a range of outbuildings at Gamekeepers Cottage, with all fixtures and fittings in place. One of the buildings has a ‘C’ listed status and could have potential for conversion to a residential dwelling given its traditional construction. Any interested party wishing to pursue this, should make their own enquiries with the regional council. A large steel portal shed is utilised as a garage and workshop. The majority of the outbuildings benefit from water and electricity laid in.

GRAZING PADDOCK
A feature of the property is the grazing paddock which amounts to about 1.5 acres and is accessed direct from the internal boundaries of the property. The land has huge potential for small-scale agricultural, equestrian or tourist-based enterprises.
