Further Information

Situation
Dinwoodie Green Farm is located within Dumfries and Galloway, a rural area renowned for its productive arable, dairy and livestock farms and magnificent countryside.
The property enjoys uninterrupted views over the surrounding
undulating countryside whilst being readily accessible.

The farm is situated just over 5 miles north of the market town
of Lockerbie which offers primary and secondary schooling, a supermarket, a range of professional services and banking
facilities.
Dumfries, 14 miles to the west, is a thriving town which provides a wide range of facilities including Dumfries Royal Infirmary (new hospital is due for completion in spring 2018) and an excellent range of shops, supermarkets, sports clubs and professional services.
The area is well served by agricultural suppliers and livestock markets at Lockerbie, Castle Douglas (32 miles), Longtown (25 miles), Carlisle (34 miles) and Ayr (74 miles).

Communications to the area are excellent with the A74(M),
the main route from England to Scotland, junction 17 less than 4 miles to the south west, and railway stations at Lockerbie, Dumfries and Carlisle, while Edinburgh is about 66 miles to the north by car. Ferry links to Ireland operate from Cairnryan (94 miles).

Scotland, with its rolling landscapes, extensive woodlands and unspoilt coastlines, provides a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuits including golf (Lochmaben, Lockerbie and Dumfries), fishing (rivers Annan and Nith), shooting and sailing. There is a tennis club in Lochmaben and an ice rink Lockerbie.
