Residential Development Land


Offers Invited


1 - 16 Acres


Castle Douglas is an important market town in Dumfries and Galloway with a population of 4,100 and it serves a much larger hinterland with a total population of 150,000 in the region. The town lies to the West of Dumfries and has ready access to the A75 which links the region to the ferry ports in the Stranraer area.

The town offers a high standard of living and has a traditional multi-tenanted high street and a number of larger format stores such as Tesco and Co-op supermarkets. The existing housing stock is of a good quality with many sandstone villas and a good provision of modern stock. The surrounding area is rural in nature and predominantly utilised for farmland. The stunning Solway coast is within a short drive.


This is a prime residential development opportunity on a greenfield site allocated for housing in the Local Development Plan.

Our client's site is situated on the approach into town from the North via Ernespie Road and sits immediately adjacent to the Tesco supermarket and a small area utilised for business and industry. The site is predominantly level and we understand greenfield having not supported any form of development in the past. The boundary to Ernespie Road is marked by mature trees at approximately 10 metres centres. We understand the trees are not subject to any protection order. Access will be most likely via the shared road with the Tesco supermarket although other access points may be possible.

The site is allocated in the Local Development Plan for housing. The current allocation plan may be downloaded below.


Our client invites offers for its heritable interest in the land.
