Watcarrick is situated about a mile to the south of Eskdalemuir in rural Dumfries-shire. This is small but thriving rural community, best known as home to the Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre which is a pull for visitors from far and wide. The village also benefits from a community hub which has a shop and café. From Watcarrick it is 15 miles to both Langholm and Lockerbie, both of which provide a wider range of shopping facilities and professional services. Lockerbie is on the main west coast railway line, with London Euston approximately a 4 hour journey. The M74 motorway, linking with the M6, is also joined at Lockerbie. The property is ideally situated for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, mountain biking, riding and fishing all readily available in the surrounding country.
From the Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre head south on the B709, passing through the village of Eskdalemuir. When the road turns sharp left over the bridge, continue straight on along the minor road, signed Baillie Hill, for 1 mile and the driveway to Watcarrick will be seen on the right.Read all
