How to get there
the full address for Darna Tighe is as follows:
3 Buttknowe, Kirkconnel, Sanquhar Dumfries and Galloway DG 4 6NX

The property is just off the A76,if you are coming from the direction of Dumfries and you are using a Sat Nav, it may tell you to turn right, just past the church at Kirkconnel, it is best to ignore this, as the lane has a number of large pot holes,and continue on the A76 for 120 yards further then turn right over a stone railway bridge, once over the bridge keep right, up the lane and you will see Darna Tighe in front or you. If you are coming from the direction of Ayr, just as you are approaching Kirkconnel, turn left over the railway bridge by the welcome to Kirkconnel sign.
