Description

Situated in the Rhins of Galloway in the small coastal village of Drummore, Scotland’s most southerly point, this charming old terraced fisherman’s cottage is a short stroll to the shoreline with its sand and shingle beach and stunning views across Luce Bay with its white tipped waves and numerous sea birds. The area is unspoilt, the scenery idyllic, and the seascapes around the Rhins as dramatic as they are beautiful. There is also the RSPB Scotland Mull of Galloway nature reserve where thousands of seabirds nest in the cliff face during the spring and summer, and harbour porpoises, dolphins, seals, otters and minke whales can also be spotted. The town of Stranraer offers a selection of shops and restaurants and Cairnryan is home to the Stena Line ferry which makes regular trips to Ireland for further sightseeing. Dumfries and Galloway is ideal for walkers, with a number of spectacular coastal paths, and even in mid-season you can often find your own secret beach.
The Galloway Forest Park and surrounding hills offer further opportunities to enjoy the glorious scenery and wildlife of the area, including the Galloway Red Kite Trail, or for the more adventurous, the 7stanes mountain bike trails. The more challenging terrain of the Galloway Hills (including the Southern Upland Way) is also within easy reach. There are many beautiful gardens in the area including Logan Botanic Gardens, Ardwell House and Gardens, Glenwhan Gardens and Castle Kennedy Gardens, all well worth a visit. The towns of Castle Douglas, the food town, Kirkudbright, the artists town, and the Royal Burgh of Gatehouse of Fleet are all within easy reach. Beach 200 yards. Shops, pubs and restaurants 150 yards.

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.
