About Powillimount Cottage

Powillimount Cottage is a traditional stone built cottage within our private Estate on the Solway Firth foreshore near Dumfries. Sweetheart Abbey and Caerlaverock Castle are right on our doorstep! A spectacularly situated cottage retreat, the property overlooks the Southerness Lighthouse and the Lakeland mountains to the front and Galloway's famous mountain Criffel to the rear.

Powillimount is the perfect mix of country cottage charm and modern comforts, located in a secluded spot surrounded by pretty cornfields, just a 5 minute stroll from a fantastic beach.  Many activities are available around the Estate including great mountain biking on 7 Stanes trails in Galloway Forest, championship golf at Southerness golf club and superb birdwatching at Mersehead only 10 minutes away.

  1. On the A710 to Kirkbean take the turning into the village then exit right by the kirk signposted Arbigland and Paul Jones Cottage.
  2. Continue on this road out of the village, passing the village hall and then up a hill. Ignore 3 left turns (the last turn you ignore is the white painted gates to Arbigland House and the John Paul Jones Museum). Continue on around 2 sharp bends for a quarter of a mile. The turning leading down to the cottages is on the left hand side, just past Moor Cottages situated to your right. If you get to Maxwellfield Farm you have gone too far.
  3. Powillimount Cottage is at the bottom of the hill on the right-hand side before you reach the farm. The cottage is the one located farthest from the road.  Off road parking is available onsite.
