Covid-19 Update 17/12/2021
Estate Agency: Viewings and Valuations.

The continued Welfare and Health and Safety of our Staff and Clients remains our top priority so 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 buoyant and 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 a lateral flow test taken prior to attending. Our Property Office will issue guidelines to be adhered to prior to during any viewings taking place.

If you are thinking about selling then to organise a free pre-market appraisal please contact the property office on 01557 331049 or by emailing

Richard Arkless | Solicitor, Property and Private Client



About Richard:
Richard is from the West of the region and lives in Stranraer. He trained with a well-regarded Edinburgh firm and qualified in Scots Law in 2009, before qualifying in English Law in 2011. He spent a few years working in English Litigation before returning home to Scotland in 2013.

He joined Williamson and Henry in 2020 following some time in politics, teaching and business. Richard is the former Member of Parliament for Dumfries and Galloway and is also a fully qualified teacher & lecturer of business. He is well known within the local community and like Ian, feels very lucky to have found a local firm with such a strong reputation. Richard specialises in Property and Private Client matters for our clients at Williamson and Henry.

Richard’s spare time these days revolves entirely around his 4 children. A devoted father and husband he spends most weekends ferrying his kids to various events and clubs. When the summer comes, the entire family can be spotted across the many beautiful camping and caravanning parks we have in Dumfries and Galloway. When he can find time to himself, Richard is an avid reader and a passionate follower of Scottish football and rugby.
