Hill of Burns is situated in the village of Creetown occupying an elevated site with distant views towards the River Cree estuary and the surrounding countryside.

Hill of Burns dates back to the late 18th Century and at one time was run as a small country house hotel, which ceased trading in the early 1990’s. Since then the property has been in private ownership and still retains many original features such as the projecting Roman-Doric tetrastyle porch, decorative cast iron radiators, eaves covings, original cupola, & cast iron insets to the open fires, some with the original tiles and surrounds. From the upper floors of parts of the living accommodation, there are distant views across the Cree Estuary and the surrounding countryside. The whole property does require some maintenance and would benefit from some cosmetic upgrading, however, provides a super blank canvas for many prospective purchasers.

Hill of Burns is approached by its own tarmac driveway opening up to ample parking to the front of the property. The dwelling is surrounded by its own large, landscaped garden grounds, which are mainly down to lawns, mature trees and shrubs with the whole property occupying about 3.24 acres. The property offers privacy and seclusion, yet within walking distance of the town amenities and major road networks.

Nearby River Cree Estuary

The closest village to Hill of Burns is Creetown, which is a small seaside town about 7 miles from Newton Stewart. Creetown is a former fishing village that was founded in the 18th century. It formed one end of a ferry route that took pilgrims across the River Cree estuary to the shrine of St Ninian at Whithorn. Creetown is home to the award-winning Gem Rock Museum with its collection of gemstones, crystals, minerals, rocks and fossils. As the filming location for the classic movie The Wicker Man, Creetown enjoys cult status among movie buffs.
