Indawo
Originally a farm built in the early part of the 19th century, South Carse became the home of designers Mark and Gaynor Ranshaw in 1992. For many years The Studio was used as the space in which to create the covers of thousands of Classical CDs and some of the original award winning paintings from this period adorn the walls, along with a massive classical and nostalgia music collection which guests are welcome to play on the Hi-Fi system.

The Studio is warm in the winter (with electric radiators in each room and electric blankets on the King size and the Single bed) and the beautiful stone walls in the lounge make it cool in the hot summer months. Access to The Old Design Studio from the driveway is down 2 steps into the kitchenette and on through a lockable doorway to the well appointed lounge.

The lounge has a large corner sofa that converts to a kingsize bed, occasional chair, coffee table, large desk/table, 32" TV, DVD Player and Hi-Fi with DAB radio tuner + Bluetooth (allowing guests to access music stored on their own mobile devices). There is a selection of DVDs plus huge collection of (mostly classical) CDs.

The large bedroom which is accessed through an archway from the lounge was previously the main design studio and has both overhead and side natural light. It contains a kingsize bed plus 1 single bed and an Edwardian chaise longue for relaxing during the day, or an additional single bed by arrangement; plus plenty of drawer & hanging space. There is a digital alarm clock with radio plus a Roberts FM Radio. There is an extensive book collection and board games available for guest use.

The newly equipped kitchenette contains a modern "Belfast style" Sink, Worktop, Microwave, Kettle, Toaster, Fridge/Freezer and Automatic Washing Machine. It does NOT have a cooker with hob & oven. There is a plug in multi cooker and electric egg boiler/poacher/omelette maker. There is a square breakfast table with 2 chairs.

Guests are welcome to use the lawned gardens. During the summer months there will be a large table with overhanging parasol and charcoal BBQ for guests use in the gardens.

The newly appointed shower room is accessed through folding doors (originally Victorian shutters) from the kitchenette and has shower, wash hand basin & WC.


Vodaphone cell phone 4G reception is usually excellent but some other networks can be rather patchy. The Studio has mobile WIFI connected to the 4G network.

Kirkbean, Scotland, United Kingdom

South Carse is the perfect location for those who enjoy birdwatching, walking, mountain biking, horse riding and golf (Southerness Championship Links course is a 10 minute drive away). The surrounding scenery is inspiring for artists.

South Carse was originally a farm on the Arbigland Estate - film setting for the Oscar nominated film "The Wife" starring Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce.

It is Close to three of the Seven Stanes Mountain Biking routes (Dalbeattie, Mabie & Ae Forests)

The food town of Castle Douglas is a 35 minute drive away and the "artist" town of Kircudbright is a little further along the coast.

There are lovely walks along the coast and pretty coastal villages to explore nearby such as Sandyhills and Rockcliffe, plus the popular sailing village of Kippford.

The Award Winning Farm shop at Loch Arthur is nearby and the delightful village of New Abbey the setting for Sweet Heart Abbey is 15 minutes down the road.

Slightly further afield is the magnificent Drumlanrig Castle, and there are incredible gardens at Threave, Logan Botanical Gardens and Castle Kennedy.

A drive to the booktown of Wigtown (renowned for its Book Festival and unique book shops) is a fabulous day out along the coast.


Notes on Carsethorn (400 metres along the beach from South Carse)
During the 18th and early 19th centuries, this small, tranquil coastal village was a busy port with regular sailings to Liverpool, The Isle of Man and Ireland. Some 21,000 emigrants left Scotland from here for a better life in the New World .
But the arrival of the railway in Dumfries in 1850, along with the cost of the many improvements needed to navigate the channel, led to a gradual decline in seaborne trade and, by the early 1900s, there was very little left.
Today, Carsethorn is a pretty village consisting of a line of cottages facing out across The Solway Firth. Almost certainly the biggest attraction in the village is The Steamboat Inn - a popular local hostelry with both residents and visitors alike, serving lunches, dinners, fine ales and spirits seven days a week, all year round.
The local beaches and the bird-rich merse where millions of seabirds live or over-winter are part of the rich natural heritage of the parish. Visitors to the National Nature Reserve on the far side of the Nith come round by the coachload to watch birds on the Carsethorn foreshore, before continuing to the nature reserves at Southwick and Mersehead.
And whilst the original pier is no more, the beach is frequently visited by pleasure boats and yachts, some of which anchor in the mouth of the burn north of the old pier.
