Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Located in the south west corner of Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway is one of the UK's best kept secrets. Easily accesible from the north of England and Scotland's central belt, it is an unspoilt haven of lovely countryside with its famous rolling hills, pretty towns and fabulous beaches. It might be quiet but is not short of events and cultural activities.
Dumfries and Galloway is surprisingly balmy due to warm currents from the Gulf Stream and you will even find palm trees around the far western coast. There is a wealth of gardens to visit and wildlife to spot from red squirrels to red kite
An area of great historic interest, Dumfries and Galloway has numerous castles, ruined abbeys and museums on offer.
Other activities include pony trekking, canoeing, nature trails, quad biking, deer park, gem museum, ice-skating.

Kirkcudbright

It is no coincidence that so many artists have chosen Kirkcudbright as their place of residence. Everywhere you turn there is a view worthy of painting and the town has changed little in the past 200 years so retains much of its original charm. Rattra Cottage is in a wonderful location right in the centre of Kirkcudbright within walking distance of shops, restaurants and pubs. In the High Street itself you will find galleries, craftshops, artists studios, a close leading to the marina and riverside views. There is also a 16th century castle just around the corner opposite the harbour. A range of facilities are available in the town such as a swimming pool and golf course and on the outskirts of town there is even a wildlife conservation park. A little further afield there are several beautiful beaches and many activities to keep visitors busy whatever the weather.
Every year Kirkcudbright hosts a number of events including a jazz festival, a Children's Festiival and an Arts and Crafts Trail Throughout the summer there are regular Historical Walks and Scottish Nights and the season culminates with a spectacular Tattoo.

“Ideal”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

A great location right in the centre of town but extremely quiet. Great base for walking and cycling and a terrific choice of restaurants and pubs. Accommodation was great value and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for writing a review. Glad to hear you had a good stay. Rattra Cottage is, indeed, very peaceful in spite of being a couple of minutes' walk from all amenities.

“Staying with elderly, mobility impaired relatives”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2011

Stayed at Rattra with 2 elderly and mobility impaired relatives - both requiring the use of a wheelchair to access the cottage from the car. Although there is a step to get in through the doors, the width is fine for wheelchairs and there's plenty of room to move about inside (doorways wide enough etc). An upright chair proved invaluable and there was plenty of space to move furnishings around to accommodate the use of walking frames and wheelchair. Proximity to town was helpful and enough cannot be said about the assistance offered by the local Tourist Information office staff in sourcing mobility aids locally; Mr Wilson the proprietor of the local garage who kindly helped store mobility scooters until we arrived to collect them; and the services provided by the mobility scooter suppliers in Castle Douglas. The only downside (apart from the weather!) was the limited access to the downstairs shower-room. This couldn't be accessed by the wheelchair user, though was just big enough for the user of the walking frame. A wall-mounted hand grip provided by a local charity shop was useful. Despite the limitations, everyone had a good holiday and would have no reservation about returning to Rattra Cottage, whose decor and facilities are of a high standard.
