Rannoch is one of a number of houses within the very successful Steading conversion of the farm Steading at Campdouglas Farm. The Steading itself is on an elevated site overlooking Loch Ken. The Steading is on the west side of Loch Ken near Glenlochar and it is only a short 3-4 mile drive to Castle Douglas. Rannoch must occupy the prime site within the Steading development since it is at the south east corner of the Steading and its elevated position affords wonderful views east and south over Loch Ken to the hills beyond and, south, by Screel and Bengairn, you can even catch a glimpse of the Lakeland hills.
HOW TO GET THERE
To reach Rannoch from Castle Douglas, take the A713 Ayr/Crossmichael Road and at Glenlochar turn left (west) signposted Laurieston. Just over the river turn right (north) and about 200 yards along, Campdouglas is the first farm on the left. When you reach the Farmhouse and Steading, veer right since Rannoch is at the right-hand corner, reached by short twin flights of steps. However, to avoid steps, you can carry on round the left-hand side of the Steading, right round clockwise, to park at the same level as the floor level of Rannoch. This is the official “disabled access” route.
