Moniaive nestles in stunning countryside where the three glens of Craigdarroch, Dalwhat and Castlefairn meet. It is a bustling village with a long history and strong community spirit. Located in the Cairn Valley 8 miles from Thornhill and 21 miles from Dumfries, with a bus route to both of these local centres, the village has a primary school, doctor’s surgery, post office and a well stocked village shop. There are also two hotels, church, very popular Italian Restaurant and an organic café. The village has a very active community and hosts a variety of community events throughout the year, including a Folk Festival, Bluegrass Festival and Moniaive Gala, a community event held in the 3rd weekend in July every year. Thornhill has a wider range of shops and services including the renowned Wallace Hall Academy secondary school. High street shops, large supermarkets, a large hospital and university campuses are available in Dumfries, the regional capital, around 21 miles south of Moniaive.
