Le logement
Scaurbridge House is just 4 miles from Drumlanrig Castle and 30 from Dumfries House. Fishing, shooting, walking, birdwatching, country pursuits and lots of unspoilt nature are in abundance here or nearby. Let me organise an itinerary or wander at will if you prefer. Whatever you choose, you can be assured of my attention to detail and to your individual requirements. Penpont is the birthplace of Joseph Thomson, the African explorer and the home of world renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy. Not far from Dumfries House, Crawick Multiverse, Charles Jencks' Garden of Cosmic Speculation, Craigdarroch House where Annie Lawrie (of the famous song) lived after her marriage and the Galloway Forest and Dark Sky Observatory. If art is your pleasure, there are sculptures by Henry Moore, Rodin and Epstein nearby and many interesting local artists offer visits to their studios showing a highly eclectic range of works during Spring Fling weekend at the end of May and throughout the year.
Robert Burns farmed at Ellisland, just 10 miles away and Greyfriars Church was the scene of the killing of the Red Comyn by Robert the Bruce.

Penpont lies approximately two miles west of the River Nith surrounded by the gentle hills which afford superb views.

This historic area welcomes the fisherman, golfer, naturalist, rambler, cyclist or country lover.

Où se situe le logement

Dumfries and Galloway, Écosse, Royaume-Uni

Dumfries and Galloway is hailed as 'Scotland's Best Kept Secret' and Scaurbridge House, just outside the village of Penpont, Thornhill, is exactly that.

Attention to detail and the warmest of welcomes makes staying with Elizabeth Ann Hughes a delightful experience. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and the garden is a haven of peace and calm. Sit at the table beside the little fish pond watching the interesting birds which visit. If you are very quiet, and very lucky, you may see one of the rare red squirrels which scuttle along the dry stone walls on their way to collect pine cones from the old Scots Pine in the quietest corner of the garden. Last week I watched 2 beautiful goldcrests (Britain's smallest bird) busy in my garden. The swallows have arrived and I am looking forward to seeing my other arrivals from Africa such as the pied and spotted flycatchers which will be here soon.

Drumlanrig Castle is nearby, go for a lovely walk in any direction and you may come across a sculpture by the world famous artist Andy Goldsworthy who lives in the area. Wander through Thornhill's tree lined avenues and enjoy bijou shopping far removed from the homogeneity of Britain's High Streets or fish on the Nith, 2 miles away. Golf, shooting, tennis, horse riding, walking and cycling can be arranged nearby. The area attracts artists and craftspersons who will be delighted to welcome you to their studios.

Back at Scaurbridge, start your day with a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, local bacon, sausages, black pudding or perhaps some smoked salmon with creamy scrambled eggs. Finish with Galloway oatcakes, local honey, fresh, hot, home made scones, and home made jams and marmalade.
