A detached 4/5-bedroom farmhouse set in a beautiful private rural location on the edge of Saint Mary’s Loch, approximately 16 miles from Selkirk and 19 miles from Moffat.

Please note this property is located 1.5 miles from the main road along a forestry track. Potential applicants should be prepared for and understand the realities of living in a large secluded rural property year-round.
