The Dumfries and Galloway region

Kilfillan Cottage is just over two hours' drive from the M6 motorway at Gretna, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle of Carlisle, Newcastle, Lancaster, Bury, Preston, Manchester and Liverpool which are all around 4 hours' drive away. Glasgow and Edinburgh are just over two and half hours drive, making this the perfect retreat for a relaxing break the whole family will enjoy. Kilfillan Cottage is also just over an hour's drive from the ferry port at Cairnryan with regular sailings to and from Belfast and Larne.


The Machars Peninsula features some unsploit and stunning sandy beaches as well as rugged coastline. A 15-minute drive from Kilfillan Cottage is Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town, with its osprey visitor centre in the imposing gothic style County Buildings. Close to Wigtown is Scotland's most southerly whisky distillery, Bladnoch, which houses a visitor centre and shop.

The cottage, which was originally Millisle Railway Station, is surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside as far as the eye can see. Garlieston, a pretty harbour village, lies half a mile away. Garlieston is known as the home of the Mulberry Harbour - a massive floating harbour used to land equipment and supplies onto the beaches in Normandy as part of the D-Day landings in World War II. Sections of the floating harbour were tested at Garlieston under conditions of great secrecy.

Galloway is perfect for a relaxing holiday. For the more energetic, however, hill walking in the Galloway hills, cycling and mountain biking are on offer too. There is also the opportunity for fishing, golfing and horse riding. And for the grown-up boys, how about a spot of tank driving? The Galloway Tank Driving Centre near Garlieston offers the chance to drive these military big beasts to your heart's content.
