Description

Set quietly off the main street, this delightful, single storey cottage lies in a lovely lochside village. It is ideally placed to enjoy the surrounding area with numerous walks available, from scenic coastal walks to forest trails. With sailing, swimming, riding, fishing, golf, boat trips and water sports all close by, there is sure to be something for everyone. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, the area has many beautiful gardens to visit, including National Trust Threave Gardens. The Galloway Forest Park is close by and is central to 5 of the 7Stanes, ideal for cyclists and mountain bikers. Castle Douglas, known as the ’Food Town’ is three miles away. Food Town Day is held in June and is designed to show people all that’s great about local produce. The main street closes to allow traders to set up their food stalls with everything from artisan breads, cakes, pies, fish and meat - a day not to be missed. Stroll to the marina or enjoy a meal in the local pub, which is just 50 yards from the cottage. Fishing is available from the lochside, by arrangement with the owner.

About the local area

The unspoilt beauty of this south west corner of Scotland is the perfect antidote to the hurly burly of modern life. Here there are deserted beaches, magnificent forests, rugged moors and beautiful lochs, all unblemished and untouched by tourism. But Dumfries and Galloway is not only perfect for chilled-out holidays, if you want a bit more action you can also find a range of activities and sports, from walking and cycling to golf and fishing.

To the west of the region is the quiet market town of Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree. This is a popular area for walkers and cyclists with open rolling countryside and close by to the Galloway Forest Park. In contrast with gentle scenery of the Solway Firth the Galloway Hills to the north has beautiful moors, mountains, lakes and rivers, with at its heart the Galloway Forest Park, some 150,000 acres of forest land with waymarked trails that are ideal for trekking and cyclists.

Formal gardens and country parks can be found throughout this area, the foremost of which is Threave Garden and Castle just south of Castle Douglas along the shores of Loch Carlingwark, renowned for its horticultural gardens and woodland covering some sixty acres. To the north of the town Loch Ken provides for more strenuous activities such as waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing.

To the south are the sandy coves and estuarine mudflats of the Solway Firth. The charming coastal resort of Kirckcudbright sits half way along the coast and was once a busy shipping port but now has a more tranquil atmosphere. Further east The Colvend coast has some lovely stretches of coastline and coastal villages providing moorings for visiting yachts and boat hire.

Inland on the River Nith, Dumfries is the regions largest town and a great base from which to explore the whole area. The town is also renowned for its associations with Robert Burns who spent the last five years of his life here.
