Dumfries

A luxury eco-friendly stay with strong green credentials and stunning surrounds in Dumfriesshire - includes breakfast and three-course dinner with wine

The phenomenally designed Three Glens is a luxury eco-home in the wild and beautiful countryside of Scotland’s Dumfriesshire. It’s so groovy, in fact, that 2,000 fleeces were taken from local Blackface sheep, just for the wall insulation. Both The Guardian and the BBC have given it the thumbs up, and it's no wonder why.

Your jaw will drop over the views from Three Glens as you gaze through floor-to-ceiling, triple-glazed windows over Craigdarroch, Dalwhat and Castlefairn. Rugged dry-stone walls and cow-hide seats, natural tones and diverse textures all enhance the appeal of this magical place, as do the majority of reclaimed materials used to build it.

Aside from the sheepy walls, there's a wind turbine that generates electricity, all heat is recycled, water is drawn from an on-site well and roughly 80% of the yummy food is either grown or reared on the pretty farm. Relax on the deck and watch out for buzzards, badgers, deer, hares, squirrels and oyster catchers, or take a walk to a seven-acre Victorian-era lake, complete with a romantic pontoon and boats, as your chef prepares high-end cuisine back at the house.
