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. Look out for the drive up into McCubbington Farm on your left and immediately take a sharp right where you’ll see a sign in the hedge for McMurdoston House. Look for our B &B/holiday cottages signs and take a sharp right again into our drive and down between the two conifers at the black metal 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 just over half a mile. Ignore a track off to the left signed for McCheynston Farm. Keep going up the hill and turn a sharp right-angle corner with a white cottage (called The Dinning) on your right. Now look out for the signs at the top of our drive, turn left and drive between the two conifers at the black metal gate.
- self-catering guests – follow the drive from the black 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 black gate which we rarely use. If in doubt just knock on the door of the main house and we’ll advise you.
- B & B guests – from the black 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.
