Auchencairn House

Surrounded by mature policy gardens and overlooking the Solway Firth, Auchencairn House is home to the Gilroy’s who farm commercial beef cattle and sheep on the surrounding 450 acres. The house is the family home of Piet and Sue Gilroy and reflects all the charm of its hosts in its character, infamous ‘doors open’ policy and unfailingly friendly welcome.
