Monreith is a small coastal village situated some 17 miles from Newton Stewart and 1.5 miles from Port William, where all local amenities, including primary school, doctors surgery, shops, bank etc., are all available. Monreith has long been a much sought after area, with certain properties commanding some of the most stunning views across Luce Bay to the Rhins of Galloway, Isle of Man and Ireland. The village has few amenities although there is a small caravan park, a golf course nearby at St. Medans and of course, direct access to the beach.

The Trust was established in 2006 in response to local concern about the shortage of affordable housing in rural Dumfries and Galloway and the fact that many people on local incomes have been unable to afford suitable housing within their own communities.

The principal aim of the Dumfries & Galloway Small Communities Housing Trust is to work with small rural communities to identify and address local housing needs as part of wider rural regeneration.

The objective of the Trust is to enable the provision of affordable homes within these small communities.

Contact the Trust for an accompanied viewing, information on eligibility and an explanation of conditions applying.

The plot can be viewed without appointment at any time during daylight hours but caution should be exercised. 
From the A747 heading south take the 2nd turning on the left in the village. Follow the road round to the right and the plots are situated on the other side of the play park.
