Shore Cottage sits right on the beach of Wigtown Bay with stunning coastal views and sunsets. Built in 1860, this ex-quarryman’s cottage forms part of a terrace, with a comfortable cosy interior and car parking. The cottage opens directly to the tidal beach in a nature reserve where you can look out for the colony of Oystercatchers and the many estuary birds. Close by is Carsluith Castle with smokehouse bistro, and Creetown smokehouse and fresh local fish shop with cafe. The nearby market town of Newton Stewart offers many excellent shops, a cinema and places to eat. Near to the Galloway Forest and Dark Skies Park, the cottage is ideally placed to explore the beauty of south west Scotland. Perfect for walkers, golfers and cyclists, with Glentrool Forest Park, Kirroughtree and the 7Stanes mountain bike trails nearby, as well as a great choice of golf courses. There is an abundance of fishing, bird watching, beautiful and exotic gardens, many rocky coves, sandy beaches and quaint villages to explore along the Machars and Rhins of Galloway.
