Thornhill is a small Scottish burgh situated on the middle River Nith in Dumfries and Galloway. The “ducal village”, so called because of its long association with the Dukes of Queensbury and Buccleuch, with its wide street plan, dates back to the fourteenth century. Nearby  Drumlanrig Castle, built by William Douglas, 1st Duke of Queensberry, in the late sixteen hundreds, is now home to the Duke of Buccleuch. The estate has some good salmon and sea trout fishing on several miles of the River Nith, which is available to visiting anglers. The area is also popular with visiting walkers.
