Location description from owner

The Mull of Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway is the most southernly region in Scotland and is largely unspoilt. It does not contain any large cities or motorways

Sandhead

In the Stranraer area there is an abundance of stunning Scenery from the Moorlands and Galloway Hills to a variety of Coastal Features.

The Auld Schoolhouse is situated in the Village of Sandhead, and looks out onto at least 7 miles of sand. It is located on a peninsula which has a varying and enchanting range of coastal features from the sandy beaches on the East coast to a variety of cliffs, rocks and sandy coves on th West the most famous of which are the delightful village of Port Logan and the picturesque fishing village of Portpatrick, with its variety of pubs and restaurants, most of which have fresh fish on their menus.

The climate here is warmed by the Gulf Stream, hence the area is renowned for its gardens which are open to the public, namely Logan Botanic, Logan House, Ardwell, Castle Kennedy, Dunskey and Glenwhan - all well worth a visit.

The area is the ideal destination for walkers as the Southern Upland Way commences in Portpatrick, it hugs the coast for some time before heading to the moorland near New Luce. There is also the newly opened(2012) Coastal Path which starts at Loch Ryan (Stranraer) and ends at the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse - ap 24 miles in total. There are also several circular walks based on this Trail from ap 1.5 to 8 miles.

The Mull of Galloway is not only the most southernly point is Scotland it is also home to the RSPB Reserve. It has web cams to nesting sites and seal breeding grounds - it is a must for nature lovers and bird watchers.

There are plenty of quiet country roads for driving or cycling along and taking in the scenery or for the more energetic cyclist there is the 7Stanes Mountain Biking Trail in the Galloway Forest Park.

Golfing is another hobby that is well catered for in this area with 4 Golf Couses within a 10minute drive from Sandhead.
