Annan

Annan is located on the northern shores of the Solway Firth, quite close to the English border and is a delight for outdoors enthusiasts and those looking to soak up the stunning scenery of Dumfries and Galloway in south west Scotland.

Don''t miss some examples of fine Georgian architecture; Bridge House at the end of the High Street was built in 1780 and today, it''s considered one of Scotland''s finest Georgian town houses.

There is lots to see and do here and keen walkers can find plenty of walks locally including the Annandale Way Walk. For those looking for something a bit more leisurely, the Annan Shore Walk provides some stunning views over the coastline and the opportunity to spot birds and other wildlife.

Fishing, golf and bird watching are all popular activities here. To fully appreciate the beauty of this coastline take a boat ride and if you’re an angler you could catch salmon, sea trout and brown trout. You''re spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out in Annan, from traditional restaurants and pubs serving the catch of the day to Italian pizzeria and fusion restaurants offering a hearty mix of Scottish and European cuisine.

Explore the region and visit the other villages in the area; head to Moffat to see the Grey Mare''s Tail Waterfall, or enjoy the pretty lochside town of Lochmaben, where mountain biking enthusiasts will find challenging trails in the nearby Forest of Ae.

Bring the whole family and enjoy all that this corner of Scotland has to offer; start your search for holiday cottages in Annan today.

    "Shimmering lakes, wooded walks and views to Lakeland across the Firth . . . superb cottages in a spectacular setting . . .’’

    In three acres of glorious garden grounds, surrounded by lakes of water lilies, splendid trees, flowering shrubs and woodland drives, the splendid cottages at Kinmount Castle are only a few miles from the sandy shoreline, which sweeps westwards to yachting harbours and bird reserves. This meticulous, architect-designed conversion has transformed the Victorian servants’ wing of magnificent Kinmount House into a delightful courtyard cluster of eight holiday cottages, seven of which we feature here, which retain a wealth of original features and details, and possess tremendous atmosphere and charm, which makes it an ideal marquee wedding venue with ballroom included. They enjoy shared use of outstanding facilities, including a superb indoor heated swimming pool, which has been sensitively incorporated into one side of the courtyard. Open daily all year round, the pool has full changing facilities, and its building also houses a sauna, sunbed, cardio gym and games room with pool table. The cottages themselves have been luxuriously appointed; the master bedrooms have four-poster beds, the kitchens are lavishly equipped and the utmost care has been taken over the choice of fabrics and furnishings. Alongside the gracious main house, they are set around the attractive courtyard with patio and barbecue areas – and an extensive grassed area offers plenty of space to relax. From the cottages, there is immediate access to the grounds where azaleas and rhododendrons are a pageant of colour in the summer. With lakes in front of the house, it is a fitting setting for properties of the finest quality, which boast views over shimmering waters to the Lakeland Hills across the Solway Firth.
    Kinmount Castle has access to exclusive salmon beats on the Rivers Annan and Nith including the famous Barjarg beat that boasts a salmon catch of 67 lb, in 1812, by well-known poacher, Jock Wallace, and confirmed by the Earl of the home. More up to date catches are now giving an average of 59 salmon and 160 sea trout in a a season along this two mile beat. One to one fishing tuition can also be arranged for novices. Prices at cost – dependant on the time of year.
    Just 2 miles from the cottages is Powfoot, created in the 1790s as a sea-bathing resort by one of the owners of Kinmount House. Set above a beach, it has an excellent golf course, one of several along this coast. About a mile further on, the river at the redstone town of Annan is famous for its salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing, and there are pleasant walks along both banks. The town boasts a choice of restaurants and pubs, as well as a sports centre. At Ecclefechan (6 miles) Thomas Carlyle’s birthplace is to be found, containing a collection of relics and letters. Rammerscales (8 miles) is a Georgian house linked with Flora MacDonald. Along the coast at Caerlaverock (8 miles), 13,000 acres of salt-marsh and foreshore have been designated a National Nature Reserve; barnacle, pink-footed and greylag geese feeding on the saltings in Autumn and Winter make this one of the most notable bird sanctuaries in Britain. Overlooking the reserve from a wooded mound are the striking red sandstone ruins of Caerlaverock Castle, dating from the 13th century and besieged many times during the Border wars.
    In the parish church at Ruthwell, the Ruthwell cross is a most impressive example of 7th-century stone carving, inscribed with verses from The Dream of the Rood. Dumfries (13 miles) is renowned for its Burns museum, and has a fine golf course. Further west are quaint fishing villages and the rugged beauty of the Galloway Hills. The area offers opportunities for sailing, water sports and riding, and the nearby towns offer good shopping and a variety of inns and eating places. Shops 3 miles.

Along the coast at Caerlaverock (8 miles), 13,000 acres of salt-marsh and foreshore have been designated a National Nature Reserve; barnacle, pink-footed and greylag geese feeding on the saltings in Autumn and Winter make this one of the most notable bird sanctuaries in Britain. Overlooking the reserve from a wooded mound are the striking red sandstone ruins of Caerlaverock Castle, dating from the 13th century and besieged many times during the Border wars.
    In the parish church at Ruthwell, the Ruthwell cross is a most impressive example of 7th-century stone carving, inscribed with verses from The Dream of the Rood. Dumfries (13 miles) is renowned for its Burns museum, and has a fine golf course. Further west are quaint fishing villages and the rugged beauty of the Galloway Hills. The area offers opportunities for sailing, water sports and riding, and the nearby towns offer good shopping and a variety of inns and eating places. Shops 3 miles.

    Nestled in beautiful countryside, Williamwood Holiday Cottages are in the ideal location to make the most of either a quiet, relaxed getaway, or an action packed holiday. Beckhead has it’s own unique style, and combines a variety of traditional and modern features, resulting in high quality accommodation. Located on an award-winning working farm, there is plenty to do, with farm tours of the owners’ 300-acre farm, featuring Highland ponies, Highland cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens, guided walks, horse riding (with stabling available should you wish to bring your own horse), bat walks, badger watching, fishing on the owners’ private lake, and meals in the owners’ dining room (activities and meals are available direct with the owner at a small cost). The farm has won the RSPB Nature of Farming award in Scotland for farming and conservation in 2011 and 2013 and a RSPB Nature Tourism award. The owners are happy to talk about the diversity of the farm and how the different wildlife habitats have encouraged the birdlife in the area, and also where photographers can get the best shots! There is a free children’s play area complete with a petting zoo, with miniature animals and picnic tables.
    Beckhead Cottage is a traditional farm cottage with its own garden and patio. There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the fresh air, and the nature that Williamwood specializes in. Inside is just as relaxing with two en-suites each with a walk-in shower. After a day of exploring, relax in front of the open fire with a glass of wine.
    Being on the farm, guests can take the opportunity to celebrate Annan’s fantastic tradition every July, where around 100 horses ride behind a group of specially selected riders who carry the flag. The ride comes through the farm and the main riders stop for refreshments. Only five minutes to the M74 motorway, 10 minutes to Gretna Green, 15 minutes to Powfoot Beach, 25 minutes to Carlisle and on to the Lake District or Newcastle, the location couldn’t be better. There is plenty of interesting history in Dumfries and Galloway, including the Old Blacksmith’s Shop at Gretna, famous for its weddings since 1754, the famous poet Robert Burns’ House, and Sweetheart Abbey. For the more adventurous there is a discount deal available with the Galloway Activity Centre and Laggan outdoor.
