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

The Southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and, of course, golf. The Solway is a popular destination and the nearby harbour town of Kirkcudbright has improved berthing facilities.
Nearby Kirkcudbright is of historic and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists it was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys” who lived in Broughton House which is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. The town itself has a good range of local shops and professional services as well as primary and secondary schools.
