Twiglees is situated half a mile off the B723 just to the east of Sandyford and enjoys a private and secluded position close to the River Black Esk and surrounded by Castle O'er Forest.

Local amenities can be found in Lockerbie or Langholm whilst a wider range of services are available in Dumfries or Carlisle with the M74 giving quick access north or south.

Lockerbie is the first large town north of the Scottish Border on the main road and rail routes from Carlisle to Glasgow. It is a thriving market town situated within beautiful countryside offering a variety of sports such as fishing, walking, cycling and horse riding. The town also has an 18-hole golf course, bowling green, ice rink, squash courts as well as very highly regarded Primary and Secondary schools. There are many recreational activities in the area such as hill walking, cycling, horse riding, golf and water sports.



From Lockerbie take the B723 towards Eskdalemuir and a few miles past Boreland you pass over the Black Water at Sandyford. After about one mile turn right just before a house and follow the road for about 0.5 mile and Twiglees can be seen on the right just before a row of 3 cottages.
