Welcome

The Buchan's Conservatory

Overlooking Loch Trool in the heart of the beautiful Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park, The Buchan provides modern, comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people who enjoy getting away from it all and forgetting about the outside world. Set in a remote, stunning location and surrounded by hills and forests there are outstanding opportunities for walking and relaxation. Bird watching is exceptional and there are cycle tracks nearby. Fishing can be arranged through the Glentrool Visitor Centre, five miles away.

Converted from a farm to a hunting lodge in 1855 by the Earl of Galloway, this historic house offers life at a different pace. Its systems are entirely reliant on nature with its own hydro-electricity and separate water supply. It has full central heating and wood-burning stove. A large conservatory (with hot tub) allows you to relax and enjoy the spectacular views and wildlife whatever the weather. There is no television reception, but a small set is provided for those who wish to bring their own video or games. There is a payphone for those who fret at the loss of a mobile signal!

The house is surrounded by over two acres of private land with a small burn, woodland and pond. Beyond this is some of the finest oak forest in Scotland with trees up to 400 years old.   Sheep graze nearby and wildlife predominates so dogs must be kept under strict control. The house and its surroundings can be enjoyed all year round but insect repellent is strongly advised in the summer!
