The Properties

Lochside Apartments consists of 2 adjoining units which can be let separately for up to 4 people or as one unit for bigger parties of up to 8. Carlingwark House is just a 2-minute walk from the apartments and sleeps 6.

Each apartment consists of 2 ground floor bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 Shower room, first-floor open plan kitchen/dining/living room with floor to ceiling doors leading to an outside balcony and outside areas to both front and rear.

Lochside Apartments are 2, family-run, self-catering apartments. These apartments are purpose-built holiday lets which were only completed in late 2010 and we are proud to be the only purpose-built holiday lets in Castle Douglas. We decided to build the apartments in this location to take full advantage of the stunning views over Carlingwark Loch and out towards the Screel and Bengairn hills as well as all local amenities being within walking distance.

The apartments are set in their own grounds, just at the edge of Lochside Park with their own off-street parking. Each apartment can be let separately or together, as one unit with a 10% discount being applied.
