A Luxury Fitness Retreat

Argrennan is a first class venue which is an exceptional example of neoclassical architecture with a rich and unique heritage, and even the occasional royal visitor. Location wise it is only 25 minutes from Dumfries Railway Station. The Estate is accessed by attractive wrought iron gates and is nestled in the heart of the rolling countryside of Dumfries and Galloway. With panoramic views further afield and attractive, colourful and ornately tailored gardens within the 50 acre estate, Argrennan has a relaxed and tranquil feel. Once our gates are closed behind you, feel the stresses and strains of the outside world melt away.

The Estate is home to a variety of wildlife and deer are often found roaming in the woodland.  Built in the 1600s, the original house was owned by Robert Cutler of Argrennan who, in 1705, passed it to his son William Cutler.  James Gillespie-Graham extended the house in 1818 which gives the building particular interest in Scottish heritage. Gillespie-Smith was best known for both houses and churches in the Scottish Gothic style.  His particular interest was in grand interiors, and this is reflected in Argrennan and notably in Hopetoun House, Taymouth Castle and the St Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow.


The Manor house comprises of a large formal dining room, drawing room and comfortable sitting room with open log fire. All entertainment rooms are dramatic and are tastefully decorated with rich fabrics, historical artworks and antiques. The main house accommodation exudes luxury and all an suites and shared bathrooms have been fitted to an extremely high standard. All bedrooms have stunning views over the manicured gardens.

Gatehouse, Shire and Stable Cottage offer additional accommodation which are full of character, but prices are tailored towards the more budget conscious client who would still like to experience the stunning surrounds of the main rooms in the manor house and the surrounding grounds. All cottages have a living room, a kitchen and shared bathrooms. The course content remains the same with the addition of mountain biking if desired.

The Program

The Camp rises early and stands down at around 7pm, providing a program of constant low-intensity physical training. Enjoy a range of exciting activities ranging from orienteering, army training beach activities, self defence, trim-trail, and hiking, to boxercise, pilates, yoga and piloxing. The team at The Camp will keep you moving all day. At The Camp we also run detailed stretching sessions, before and after all activities to minimise injury.

The Boot Camp in Scotland caters for a nominal group of clients per course, which ensures exclusivity and the most effective and safe instructor to client ratio.
