Kincairn is idyllically located beside a beautiful stretch of un-spoilt sandy beach fringing Luce Bay. This lovely bungalow has been designed with one thing in mind: to complement the stunning views across the bay. The delightful sun room provides guests with a wonderful vista as they sit back and take in the ever-changing seascape. This section of coast is rich in marine and bird life. Sea otters and grey seals for example, are frequent visitors and cormorants searching the bay for fish are also a common sight.

About the local area

The nearby town of Wigtown is known throughout the land as Scotland’s book town. However, it’s relatively new claim to fame is a pair of nesting ospreys and thanks to the Wigtown Bay Osprey Project, visitors can watch these rare and beautiful birds on a video link showing live images. This area of Scotland remains relatively untouched by time. The roads are fringed with hedgerows and the pretty beaches surprisingly devoid of people, The local Galloway Hills are in places every bit as challenging as some of the more well known mountain ranges located further north.
The area is also touched by the warm breezes of the Gulf Stream. The amazing Logan Botanic Gardens and the gardens at Ardwell and Glenwhan are testimony to its benign influence. This area is known as The Rhins- a wonderful peninsular surrounded by water on three sides. It is the ideal getaway for walkers with its beautiful rolling pastures and dramatic coastal scenery. Highly recommended is the Stairhaven Coastal Walk. This provides a great vantage point across Luce Bay to The Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point. The two small isles are Little Scares and Big Scares Rocks and home to one of the very few gannet nesting sites in the world. As one would expect the fishing here is first class whether it be sea or coarse fishing and the temperate climate is just perfect for that beach barbeque! But those who prefer their fish already caught; there are some good local fish restaurants.
For those seeking a little more of an adrenaline rush, the mountain biking at one of the several 7Stanes venues available in the region is simply world class. Laggan Outdoor Centre offers mountain balling, water balling, clay pigeon shooting and archery. There is also horse riding available locally. There are three golf courses within 10 miles of Kincairn-  Stranraer, Glenluce and at Portpatrick. The nearby Galloway Forest Park is the only official Dark Sky Park in the UK and to see the night sky in all its glory is truly one of the wonders of the world.
