Covid-19 Update 06/01/2021
Estate Agency: Viewings and Valuations.

Since 29 June, all home moves have been permitted, provided they can be carried out safely. This continues to be the case following the lockdown announcement  to drive down the infection rate.

Unlike the previous Lockdown in March the property market in Scotland and England remains open.  The Scottish Government current guidance allows for travelling for the purposes of moving home (including viewings)  as long those who are viewing are seriously interested and have looked at both the home report and the video tour for the property. 

The Scottish Government have advised that viewers should initially view virtually where possible before attending a physical viewing.  All our residential properties have virtual tours which can be viewed on request.

All viewings of properties will require an appointment to be booked in advance and the Property Office will issue guidelines to be adhered to prior to any viewings taking place.

As well being able to organise viewing we are also allowed to carry out pre-market appraisals. To organise a free pre-market appraisal please contact the property office on 01557 331049 or by emailing

Most booking holiday accommodation want something different from their usual home, and the Cider Tower certainly will provide this. Rich in character and absolutely unique, it should benefit from many repeat holiday bookings if used for this purpose. Of course, it would also make a charming, quirky, permanent home if preferred.
The Cider Tower dates back to around 1710 and was originally built as a Windmill. It is a unique property which has been converted in a sympathetic way coupling the tradition of the building itself with the convenience of modern living.

The property takes full advantage of the unique qualities of the building with the Master Bedroom, Living Room and Gallery/Mezzanine all being within the cylindrical shape of the former Cider/Mill Tower itself.

The Cider Tower is in excellent decorative order throughout and is presently tastefully presented as a successful holiday let. Located on Cannee Hill, the views from both within the tower itself or from the garden ground are spectacular: views over the River Dee Estuary to the south, views to Cairnharrow and Cairnsmore of Fleet to the northwest and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. Not only are the views stunning in daylight, the sunset from this property is ‘something special’.

Cider Tower is situated approximately 1 mile from Kirkcudbright town centre. Being positioned on the outskirts of Kirkcudbright, it allows convenient access to all local amenities whilst offering the opportunity of rural living. Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic
and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists’ Town”.

Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants, whilst offering a wide range of facilities, including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme, including its own Jazz Festival and Tattoo.
