Laggan – A Family Story

Laggan has been the home of the McConchie family for five generations.

In 2007, we inherited some of our family’s land and wanted to share its stunning location and unique setting to locals and tourists.

We built Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre, providing visitors with a place to take part in adrenaline fuelled adventures. With one of Europe’s largest zip wires with views of the Solway coast, Laggan Outdoor became a magnet for tourism in the region.

As the activity centre took off, we decided to build our family home at Laggan in 2009. 

Since completing our home with three little boys; the twins Freddie and Alfie, and little brother Robbie, we were ready to build our dream of a high-end rural wedding and events venue.

We are very much a family run business, and it is our McConchie family values and ethos that has made Laggan the success that it is today.

In 2017, we built GG’s Yard. Named after our Great-Granny Margaret McConchie, GG’s Yard is a 250-year-old converted farmstead providing a space for weddings, corporate events and other celebrations.

During this time, we also built our Sea View Snugs, 18 unique and stylish Snugs offering guests unrivalled views of the coast. The Snugs became a base for wedding guests, as well tourists exploring the area.

In 2020 we decided to close the activity centre to focus on our other exciting Laggan features including GG’s Yard, Sea View Snugs and Gather.

As Laggan expanded, we knew we needed to offer our visitors a special place to dine and connect with friends and family, so we decided to launch Gather, our new bistro built into the hills, with sensational views of the coast.

We are greatly honoured to have the privilege of continuing the McConchie legacy and look forward to sharing the magic of our magnificent location.

 

The Farm

A gateway to the Galloway Hills and on the doorstep of the dramatic coastline, our unique location and our spaces is what makes Laggan so special.

Our family first bought Laggan Farm in 1970, when Granny and Grandpa McConchie moved here from Mossyard. Since then Laggan has been farmed by Murray, Kerr and Ian McConchie.

After many years of farming, Kerr and Caroline McConchie handed over the land at Laggan which gave us the opportunity to make a dream business a reality.

In 2007, Duncan lead the farm’s diversification with the build of Laggan Outdoor Activity Centre. What started as archery in a cow shed has transformed into a rural destination of excellence.

Still a working farm today, visitors will be greeted with grazing cattle and sheep amongst our 1,000 acres of hillside land.

We are not far from Dumfries or Stranraer and no more than a couple of hours from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

We are based in an easy rural location whilst still offering visitors that chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

With continued pride and love for this magical location, Laggan offers visitors a range of experiences in Dumfries and Galloway, all in one beautiful setting.

Laggan is a place where people can spend time with their friends and family, whether that is enjoying a getaway, celebrating a wedding or enjoying a meal out together.
