Quietly situated within its own private estate, Barscobe House is surrounded by beautiful countryside with commanding views stretching out across its gardens towards the hills of the Glenkens beyond, a regional scenic area located in Dumfries & Galloway, Southwest Scotland.
The house is a large family home that sleeps up to 17 people, located 2 miles from the village of Balmaclellan and 15 miles from the market town of Castle Douglas. With its own loch, hills, ancient woodlands and waterfalls on the Garple Burn, this secluded historic estate benefits from its own wild trout fishing, deer stalking and rough shoot, making it the perfect Scottish retreat.
With numerous other activities also locally available including golf, sailing, canoeing, water-skiing, hill walking and mountain biking, Barscobe House is also within easy distance of sandy beaches and a range of nationally famous country houses open to the public, such as Drumlanrig Castle and Dumfries House.

Barscobe is a very special place for families and friends to come together and enjoy some of Scotland’s finest scenery and countryside. With lots of activities on the estate and locally, it is the perfect house for a wonderful and relaxing holiday.
We had a fantastic weekend. The house is amazing. Loads of room for 17 to be together as well as other rooms to escape to. We got on well with the aga considering none of us had used one & it was easy to cater for 17 all weekend. The cold pantry was a hit with everyone. Nigel was very helpful even down to giving us a cup of flour & telling us where to find charcoal for our Hawaiian bbq!! Only having to light the fires & not clean them out was great. Could have stayed another week! Barscobe will be on the top of the list for next year. Three 65ths to celebrate!! Thanks for all your help with booking. Mrs Gina Chicken, Tarbert, Argyll

We had a fantastic stay at Barscobe House, Nigel and Vicky couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. It was such a treat to have the fires set up every morning! The house provided us a comfortable, family friendly place to relax and enjoy each others company. My mum was really pleased with the house and we all loved the big comfy beds! A fantastic holiday.

Barscobe in Dumfries and Galloway (only Galloway I knew of before was 'George'!) is a gem of an estate that enjoys all the magical unspoilt delights of a remote Scottish holiday but amazingly only an hour from the border; Gretna Green and turn sharp left! The wonderfully spacious, yet cosy, warm and friendly house sits in the middle of 'the Highlands of the Lowlands'. Surrounded on all sides by beautiful and expansive views, providing for endless walks, plenty of fishing in freshwater lochs and ample space for the whole family to explore in safe and friendly surroundings. We all loved it and we will definitely be going back.
Barscobe was a lovely family holiday with plenty of space both inside and out. The house oozes comfortable grandeur but offers the modern amenities. We loved exploring the extensive grounds which we all returned from refreshed and looking forward to a comfortable bath and glass of wine or two! You must partake in the invigorating river swimming – fantastic!
Our family holiday at Barscobe was fantastic - it’s the real deal. A hide-and-seek heaven for children with stunning walks amidst its rolling hills, dramatic waterfall and fishing on the loch – what more could we ask for? Log fires, snooker table and a fabulous old bar for a wee dram and a wayward game of darts. Perfect!
We had such a fantastic time at Barscobe. We could not recommend it highly enough. The house is a perfect mix of formal and informal, roomy and cosy. A stunning location for a relaxing escape with plenty to keep the more energetic entertained!
