A slice of south-west bike heaven

A HOSTEL and guest house located close to a popular mountain biking route has been placed on the market for £615,000.

Herriesdale House, located between Castle Douglas and the Solway Coast, operates an eight-bedroom four-star hostel as well as a separate, self-catering cottage.


Herriesdale House is situated between Castle Douglas and the Solway Coast.

It also contains a private house with four bedrooms and a number of public rooms. The property is situated in gardens and around four acres of grounds. The sale is being handled by property agent Colliers International, which is promoting the business as a destination for budget holidays.
Adam Lansdown, director of Colliers International, said: “We are pleased with the flow of enquiries and transactions that have been completed during the past year, and this most attractive and well-maintained business will appeal to a number of potential buyers, both locally and from further afield.”
The current owners have been at Herriesdale for the past 21 years, and are looking to retire.
