How to get there
From A74 (M) Northbound – Leave at Junction 18 . At T-junction turn right onto B723 (Lockerbie, Dumfries etc.). At roundabout take 2nd exit onto B7076 (Dumfries etc.). After ¾ mile turn right (Dumfries etc.). At T-junction turn right onto A709 (Lochmaben/Dumfries) and head west out of Lockerbie, crossing River Annan at Shillahill Bridge. (Ignore signpost for Hightae to left immediately after bridge – that route is twisty and narrow!) After 3 miles you reach Lochmaben. Immediately turn sharp left onto B7020 (Annan). After 2 miles turn left (Hightae) and follow the road down into the village for about 400 yards. Holland Bush is the first street on the right.
