Comlongon Castle is located in Dumfries & Galloway, South West Scotland
Comlongon Castle is situated down a mile long private tree-lined drive in the village of Clarencefield just 15 miles west from Gretna and 9 miles east of Dumfries on the B724, whilst the vast unspoiled region of Galloway is but a short drive.

The entrance to the tree lined tarmac road leading to the Castle is in the village of Clarencefield.

Beware that most Sat Nav systems seem to send motorists the wrong way! If you type in our postcode of DG1 4NA most Sat Navs will point you here, but will often select an unused dirt track. We have found the best way is to type in "Clarencefield" and upon entering the village of Clarencefield from either Annan (East) turn left just before leaving the very small one street village, or from Dumfries (West) turn right just as you enter Clarencefield.

We can of course arrange any sort of transport for you and your clients from wherever you wish, from a taxi, limosine or buses.

If in doubt please call the Castle on 01387 870283 before visiting.
