There are many lovely walks in the immediate area and further afield. If Castles interest you, apart from the picturesque ruins, within walking distance is Drumlanrig Castle. This is fine day out for all the family where you can find art, historical items, beautiful gardens, an adventure playground and exhilarating mountain bike trails. If you are a fisherman then there are many miles of fishing, particularly game, in both rivers and lochs. If you are a course fisherman try Morton Castle only 15 mins away for its Tench. However perhaps a round of Golf maybe more for you in which case Thornhill has an 18 hole course open to visitors.
