Location description from owner

The South Ayrshire region

Ballantrae, from Gaelic and meaning 'Town on the shore', is situated on Ballantrae Bay on the South Ayrshire coast, at the mouth of the River Stinchar. The village was a fishing Port and a favourite haunt of smugglers. The village gave its name to Robert Louis Stevenson's brooding novel the Master of Ballantrae, and may have been inspired by an incident in 1876 when the great writer was said to have been stoned by the residents of Ballantrae, who were apparently upset by his clothing. The area is picturesque with stunning coastal scenery along the A77 and many small laybys and stopping points allowing visitors to investigate the coast and rocks. Ballantrae faces west and visitors can see the outline of a number of islands and land masses including Ailsa Craig, Arran, The Mull of Kintyre and occasionally Northern Island. This western aspect is frequently bathed in glorious sunsets and being close to the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park the night skies can be liberally sprinkled with a scintillating display of stars set against in a velvety dark blue curtain.

This area of Scotland offers a number of summer village fetes in June, July and August as well as the Girvan Folk Festival in early May and the Wigtown Book Festival in late September.

“A beautiful cottage to go to - one of the best.”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

This cottage is deceptively spacious offering excellent accommodation for myself, my wife and 2 grown-up children. The cottage is a good base to explore the coast line of South West Scotland and the Galloway Forest and has excellent views across to Mull of Kintyre, Northern Ireland, and Ailsa Craig (on a clear day).
