the farm

Welcome to The Marks, 3 star Bed and Breakfast


The farm is a very picturesque place, with the Galloway hills as a backdrop, planted up in the early 1920’s as a shooting estate. With lots of woods, walks, a loch, and parkland to explore, you could enjoy a day out just around the farm.

An after-dinner seat in the garden or an evening stroll just down the Marks drive will take you into a starlit world, weather permitting of course. The lack of light pollution means that the constellations are very easily seen on a clear night.

The Marks is a working farm with a herd of dairy cows milked twice daily. Also now specialising in worm farming: the home of Quiet lanes to explore on your own and rides to the hills and local beaches.
