Scaurbridge House is just 4 miles from Drumlanrig Castle and 30 from Dumfries House. Fishing, shooting, walking, birdwatching, country pursuits and lots of unspoilt nature are in abundance here or nearby. Let me organise an itinerary or wander at will if you prefer. Whatever you choose, you can be assured of my attention to detail and to your individual requirements. Penpont is the birthplace of Joseph Thomson, the African explorer and the home of world renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy. If art is your pleasure, there are sculptures by Henry Moore, Rodin and Epstein nearby and many interesting local artists offer visits to their studios showing a highly eclectic range of works.
Robert Burns farmed at Ellisland, just 10 miles away and Greyfriars Church was the scene of the killing of the Red Comyn by Robert the Bruce.
Penpont lies approximately two miles west of the River Nith surrounded by the gentle hills which afford superb views.
This historic area welcomes the fisherman, golfer, naturalist, rambler, cyclist or country lover.
