    Sympathetically renovated, this 18th-century stone-built cottage has its own waterwheel and lies at the edge of the small hamlet of Glenmidge. Semi-detached, it lies next to the owner’s home by the Glenmidge Burn, where the odd glimpse of an otter can be seen. Surrounded by hills and forest, the area has abundant wildlife including roe deer, foxes, badgers, tawny and barn owls, buzzards and red kites. There are trail paths for walking, running and mountain biking on the doorstep, but there are also flat routes and quiet country roads along the valley (maps are available in the cottage).
    Less than a mile away up the glen stands the remains of the Lag Tower, which was built by the wealthy Grierson family in the 15th century and was last occupied by Sir Robert Grierson towards the end of the 17th century. He was best remembered as a notorious persecutor of the covenanters, and his headstone is in a local graveyard.
    Situated on the Kirkpatrick Macmillan Cycle Trail, the cottage is only 5 miles away from the old Courthill Smiddy at Keir, where Kirkpatrick Macmillan invented the first pedal-driven bicycle in the world. A replica is in the museum 3 miles further on at the 17th-century Drumlanrig Castle at Thornhill. Open to the public, the castle has one hundred and twenty rooms, seventeen turrets and four towers, and is home to the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensberry. As well as beautiful grounds and river walks, it boasts one of the 7stanes cycle centres, with the Ae Forest close by.
    Dalswinton Loch is 4 miles away with lovely walks, and there is a replica of the first paddle-driven steam boat in the world which made its first journey on the loch. The famous poet, Robert Burns, was one of the first passengers on board; he lived and worked the farm at Ellisland, where he wrote Auld Lang Syne and Tam o’ Shanter. Ellisland Farm is a museum and visitor centre, 3 miles away.
    There are several golf courses to choose from in the area: Thornhill is 7 miles, and Dumfries is 9 miles, and both offer shops and plenty of restaurants and pubs. The highest golf course in Scotland is at Leadhills, near Wanlockhead, which is also the highest village in Scotland. Lying 17 miles away, it is famous for the mining of gold and lead, and you can visit the mining museum there. The River Nith and the River Cairn are both about 2 miles away in opposite directions, both being famous for salmon, sea trout and wild brown trout fishing. Day and season tickets are available to visitors. Each fisherman is permitted to keep two salmon per season. Loch fishing for trout and course fish are also available nearby. Beach 22 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    It was a very tranquil location. Rose and Frank were the most hospitable people. Very genuine and thoughtful. We will be going again and would recommend it if you like nature. The dog was made very welcome too.

    Lovely cottage with lovely surroundings. Rosalinda & Frank excellent hosts and very welcoming. Our two-year-old cocker spaniel Kenzie had a ball - she was very unhappy when we started packing up to come home ? Look forward to returning there again. Highly recommend The Cottage - very deserved awards.

    We had a wonderful weekend at this really lovely cottage. Frank and Rosamund were excellent. They could not do enough for us. They even looked after our young dog whilst we went out to eat. Cannot recommend this place enough. Loved every minute. Thanks

    The Cottage was absolutely immaculate and the owners went above and beyond to provide a wonderful holiday experience. Both Frank and Rosemund were the perfect hosts and were most helpful in every way. Loved the bespoke decorative range in the living room, the dining table and the small but perfectly formed kitchen which was thoughtfully kitted out. There were towels, treats and outdoor hose for the dog and nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful hosts. We don’t usually return to a cottage as we like to explore new places....but this might just be the exception. Thank you for the perfect short break!
