Ghillie's Cottage is a quiet retreat set in the rolling Galloway hills, with a touch of elegance and style.

Comfortably sleeping six, we can also offer two pull out beds. The cottage offers a very spacious living area with excellent facilities.

The local area offers a host of activities including off road walks, cycle hire or mountain biking and fishing. Drumlanrig Castle and country estate is only a couple of miles away where you can take a castle tour, explore the lovely gardens and woodland or let the children loose in the excellent adventure playground. There is also a very good tea room for grown ups!
