Genoch cottage, in the South Ayrshire hills

Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car advised
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

Genoch Cottage is set on the turfy, rocky slopes of Genoch Inner Hill, toward the head of the Girvan valley in South Ayrshire. At the end of a farm track, it is in a beautiful isolated spot, with spectacular views towards the hills over the green river valley. One part of the cottage - the Garden Flat - is available for couples only. It has beautiful views, a log-burning stove, and all you need for a great get-away.

There are easy walks from nearby Straiton (a pretty conservation village with shop, café and pub!), picnic spots by the river and by waterfalls, nearby beaches at Maidens and Culzean Castle, the premier visitor attraction for the National Trust for Scotland. For the more ambitious walker or mountain-biker, there is the Galloway forest park, which begins just a mile along the road from the cottage: and walks into the Galloway Hills from Glentrool - perhaps to climb Merrick, the highest mountain in Southern Scotland - make a lovely day out.

On clear nights, you can stargaze from the cottage, or in the nearby Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park - or book a visit to the Scottish Dark Skies Observatory, and see the stars in close-up.
