Newton Stewart is a small town on the southern edge of the Galloway Forest Park, 43 miles from Dumfries and 24 miles from Stranraer. The main industries in the area are agriculture, forestry and tourism and these are supported by a variety of businesses, shops and an auction market in the town. Tourism is important to the area taking advantage of the attractive countryside and coast. The Galloway Forest is the largest in Scotland covering 300 square miles with a million trees, 250 lochs and an annual timber production of 500,000 tons. Recreational pursuits attract more than 800,000 visitors a year and activities include walking, cycling, fishing and the Dark Skies Park. Minigaff is on the north side of the town and the east side of the River Cree.


The property extends to 0.17 hectares (0.43 acres) and has an entrance shared with a neighbouring property. The property adjoins the Penkiln Burn with Penkiln Bridge to the north and residential properties to the east and south. The building was originally built as a dwelling and the arrangement of the rooms for this is easily recognisable however in 1996 the dwelling was changed to office use. There are 2 storeys, brick and harled walls, a tiled roof, double glazed windows, central heating with a gas boiler, fire alarm and CCTV. On the south side, the building has a covered ground floor patio and a first floor balcony and on the west side, overlooking the Penkiln Burn, there is a ground floor kitchen-diner extension. The garden ground contains a separate brick garage (18.70 sq.m.) and a large hardstanding area for car parking.
