Overlooking Loch Trool in the heart of the Galloway Forest Park this former Hunting Lodge has a truly unique location. The Buchan provides self catering accommodation for up to 8 people who have a sense of adventure and are looking for a different holiday experience It is superb for those who enjoy getting away from it all which this house ensures by being in the heart of the Galloway Forest Park "Dark Skies Park" so you will have superb opportunities to see the starry sky at night. The house is set in a remote, stunning location which offers exceptional opportunities for walking, bird watching or simply relaxing. There are also cycle tracks and fishing nearby.

Originally the Earl of Galloway's hunting lodge, this historic house offers life at a different pace. Its systems are entirely reliant on nature with its own hydro electricity and water supplies. It has full central heating, wood-burning stove and a large conservatory (with hot tub) allowing you to relax and enjoy the spectacular views and wildlife whatever the weather. There are over two acres of enclosed private land with a small burn and pond.. Sheep and wildlife are all around so dogs must be kept under strict control.
