Changue is situated within the Machars peninsula in Dumfries and Galloway, about 4 miles north of Port William, on the southwest coast of Scotland. The holding lies in a genuinely rural area of Scotland renowned for its picturesque countryside and dramatic coastline. The farm benefits from wonderful views across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man, often visible on clear days.
The nearby village of Port William provides many local amenities including a village shop with Post Office, primary school, church, village hall, playpark, tennis court and bowling green. Wigtown, approximately 13 miles east, offers further local amenities and is famed for its National Book Town status, playing host to a popular festival annually in September. Both Stranraer and Newton Stewart are approximately 20 miles from Changue and provide secondary schooling along with a good range of services including supermarkets and shops. The harbour town of Stranraer is an excellent base from which to explore the coast while the traditional market town of Newton Stewart is perfectly situated for the nearby Galloway Forest Park which covers a vast and sparsely populated landscape stretching to the north and east and is one of only four national parks in the western world to have official Dark Sky status.
The rolling landscape, woodland and unspoilt coastline provide many opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Country sports in the area include fishing for trout and salmon on a host of rivers along the Galloway coast, shooting on many local estates and for keen riders there are several local hunts. The quiet country roads are popular with walkers and cyclists, and there is golf on local courses at Monreith, Wigtown and Newton Stewart. Ideally situated for Changue, the coastline offers excellent sailing and sea fishing, and there are safe anchorages at Port William and the Isle of Whithorn.
Communication links in the area are good with railway stations in Stranraer, Barrhill (29 miles) and Dumfries. The M74, linking the north and south by road, lies about 85 miles to the east. The nearest international airports are at Prestwick (about 74 miles) and Glasgow (about 107 miles). Cairnryan lies about 22 miles to the west and is the main ferry terminal for Northern Ireland with services to both Larne and Belfast.
The original Changue Bungalow comprises a single storey, detached dwelling with two bedrooms. It sits in an elevated south facing position overlooking Luce Bay with panoramic views. The bungalow is derelict but does benefit from detailed planning consent (including a Building Warrant) to demolish the property and redevelop the site with a stunning contemporary three bedroom new build property taking advantage of the breathtaking views across the Bay to the Isle of Man courtesy of large panoramic windows to the southwest elevation (planning ref: 17/1504/ful). The land running south from the bungalow to the foreshore is included with this unique development site providing flexibility and protection to the proposed development. The site extends to 5.09 acres (2.06 hectares) in total.
