Location description from owner
The Scotland region
The cottages are in the Dumfries & Galloway region of S W Scotland where life goes on at a steady pace and people are extremely friendly.
This area is steeped in history and there are many abbeys and castles to visit. It is a bird watcher's paradise with many species of birds including ospreys, red kites, buzzards, peregrine falcons and puffins just to name a few and occasionally a golden eagle if you are lucky.
Galloway Forest Park is one of the darkest places on the planet at night, which makes it a ideal place for stargazers in the UK.
Cairnsmore is a mountain amongst the many Galloway Hills and it is just 1 km. from the cottage. A slow walk to the summit gives fantastic views to the Isle of Man and beyond. The Gulf Stream affects this climate and therefore it is generally quite warm, this is also the reason that there are so many beautiful gardens to visit.
The Galloway Forest Park has many lochs, burns and places of interest including the Red Deer Park and the Wild Goat Park. There are ranger led walks where you can see spectacular sights, be it red deer or nightjars. Glen Trool is magnificent in its beauty and a famous battle ground where Robert The Bruce had success against the English Army.
The Forestry Commission have opened the '7 stanes' mountain biking routes in the forest and they are ranked as world class! These are built with different routes to suit all abilities and mountain bike hire is available.
Fishing and sailing can be enjoyed from the many harbours and the miles of beaches and coastline.
You will find many places providing good food from superb fish restaurants in Portpatrick to smaller tearooms where you can enjoy home made soup and a roll. Kittys Tearoom in New Galloway is excellent, with puddings to die for! Open Easter to October
There is the Castle Douglas Food Town, the Kirkcudbright Artists Town, Wigtown Booktown and many more small towns and villages, all with their own bit of magic including a distillery to visit at Bladnoch. The world famous Gemrock Museum in Creetown is 4 miles from the cottage, certainly worth a visit.
Ferries sail from Stranraer to Ireland where you can take a day trip to visit Belfast or the Antrim Coast and visit the Giants Causeway.
