Location description from owner

The Scotland region

There's a surprise at every turn in Dumfries & Galloway, from discovering inspirational art on a forest walk to getting surprisingly close to red kites and red deer as you explore.The rugged coastline, sandy beaches and tranquil lochs all look even more stunning as the region basks in glorious sunshine, and the longer days give more time for exploring this wonderful corner of Scotland.Picture yourself with a loved one, sharing a glorious walk along a quiet beach or sharing a tranquil stroll through Williamwood Cottage's own private wood, Let the stresses of life melt away as you wander through the grounds full of wildlife or cycle along the specially made tracks around the farm.
