How to Find Us
Coming from the South
Take the A76 North from Dumfries for just under 5 miles. Turn left at the sign for Merkland and follow the lane gently uphill for a mile and a half. Take a sharp right when you see the sign for McMurdoston House and then sharp right again into our drive and down to the blue gate.
Coming from the North
Take the A76 South from Thornhill for about 5 miles to Auldgirth. Turn right and follow signs to Dunscore for just over a mile. When you see the postbox at the staggered crossroads go straight ahead and climb uphill for half a mile. Look out for our signs at the top of the drive, turn left and drive through the blue gate.
- self-catering guests – follow the drive from the blue gate and keep left of the white pillars, leading you into the main courtyard. Parking for Swift Cottage is to the left, in front of the long barn, and parking for Swallow Cottage is directly ahead of you, in front of the blue gate. If in doubt just knock on the door of the main house and we’ll advise you.
- B & B guests – from the blue gate follow the drive to the right and go through the white pillars. Keep going round and park at the front of the house where we’ll look out for you at the front door.
