The property provides great scope and opportunities for farming or diversification in a superb, highly accessible location and therefore viewings are recommended to fully appreciate the location and accommodation on offer.
The property is situated just outside the small village of Rigg and offers a highly convenient location for access to the centre of Gretna where local amenities can be sought including Gretna Green Outlet Centre, Doctors Surgery, two Primary Schools (Gretna & Springfield), hotels, restaurants and more. For commuters, there is excellent access to the M74 North and M6 South which provides links with the major commercial centres of the region. The property benefits from being rural while still having road links to surrounding agricultural amenities such as livestock markets and agricultural suppliers.
