Located on Back Street which runs parallel to the High Street in New Galloway, East View retains much of the charm of a traditional ‘Galloway’ cottage but it also incorporates many modern conveniences including oil fired central heating throughout, double glazed windows downstairs with double glazed Velux windows in the upstairs bedrooms. An area to the left of East View (formerly the site of a long since demolished building), provides off-road parking and a drying area. An area of ground in common ownership lies to the rear of East View with a small area to the rear in the exclusive ownership of the property. There is no exclusive garden ground as such, which for some, such as those looking for a holiday home, might be an attraction.

New Galloway sits on the west side of the valley of the Water of Ken some mile north of the end of Loch Ken. Largely built around a north-south High Street that climbs up through the village its location on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park adds to its attraction. New Galloway as you see it today dates back to planned development in the 1600’s. It was granted burgh status in 1630 and remains as Scotland’s smallest Royal Burgh. The village boasts its own Post Office, two hotels, children’s play park, golf course and church.
