Covid-19 Update 17/06/2021
Estate Agency: Viewings and Valuations.

The continued Welfare and Health and Safety of our Staff and Clients remains our top priority so as we begin to ease out of lockdown our office premises will operate on a restricted basis. We are still operating a strict appointment only system for our office should a face to face meeting be required.   

The property market is open for business; as 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

A traditional two storey and attic semi-detached south facing townhouse set off the town’s wide high street. The property benefits from oil fired central heating complemented by a Thornton Dale multi-fuel stove and double glazing, providing well-proportioned family accommodation.

Dalry is an attractive village with wide streets and it has an active community. Set in the heart of the village near to the village store and both the Clachan Inn and Lochinvar Hotel which provide bar and restaurant facilities. Dalry is set in the Glenkens which is well served by activities based at the Catstrand in New Galloway bringing community and arts facilities to the area.

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 property is also ideally located to take advantage of a number of outdoor pursuits and leisure activities including hill walking on the nearby Southern Upland Way or Galloway Forest Park, water sports on Loch Ken or to enjoy the many cultural events at the thriving Community Arts Trust at the Catstrand in New Galloway.
