Situated in the picturesque, South Ayrshire village of Straiton, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this pretty stone-built artist's cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all. Nestling beneath Craigengower Hill, Craigview sits at the end of a row of 18th Century cottages that line Straiton's lovely main street. The iconic, former weavers' cottages, with their window boxes and rambling roses, make Straiton one of the most beautiful villages in Southwest Scotland.

With her artist's eye for colour and detail, Craigview's owner has lovingly restored the cottage, preserving its charm and character, while creating the perfect retreat and a comfortable home from home. Decorated in a vintage country-style, the cottage has an eclectic mix of art and vintage finds. Throughout the house, there are well-stocked bookcases for book-lovers to browse.

Location description from owner

The South Ayrshire region

Situated in South Ayrshire, close to the Galloway Forest and neighbouring county of Dumfries and Galloway, the village of Straiton is an ideal base for exploring the unspoilt countryside and beautiful coastline of southwest Scotland. Ferry ports at Cairnryan and Troon offer travel links to Ireland, while the island of Arran with its dramatic mountainous landscape is an hour's sail from Ardrossan. Only 8 miles from the A77, the main route north to Central Scotland, Straiton is an hour's drive from the vibrant city of Glasgow with its bars, restaurants, art galleries and museums. Edinburgh, Scotland's historic and cultural capital is 2 hours drive away.

Straiton

Straiton is a very special place. Nestling beneath Craigengower Hill, in a lush, green river valley, the picturesque village sits above a sweeping bend in the Water of Girvan - the river described in a poem by Robert Burns as 'Girvan's fairy-haunted stream'. Located in the heart of Burns Country, Straiton is set amidst the idyllic rural landscape that inspired Scotland's world-famous poet. The village of Alloway, Robert Burns' birthplace and the setting for his epic poem Tam 'o' Shanter is just 12 miles away.

The cliffs, castles and beaches of Ayrshire's varied coastline are also a short drive away, with stunning views across the Firth of Clyde towards Ailsa Craig and the dramatic mountain peaks of Arran. Culzean Castle, the National Trust for Scotland's jewel in the crown, sits majestic on a cliff overlooking the sea - there are follies, a swan pond, walled garden and a magnificent country park to explore. Inland, Dumfries House, the sumptuous stately home restored to its former glory and championed by H.R.H. Prince of Wales is 40 minutes drive away.

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Straiton has a wealth of way-marked trails, making it a haven for walkers. The tranquil countryside offers plenty of opportunities for bird-watching and spotting wildlife. There's also kayaking, horse riding and fishing, with permits available to buy. With its fabulous network of country roads, the area is also a mecca for road cyclists. The 7 Stanes mountain biking trails at Glen Trool in the Galloway Forest are just 45 minutes drive. And for golfers there are world class championship courses a short distance away at Turnberry and Royal Troon.

This friendly village will offer you a warm welcome. It is a short stroll to 'The Black Bull', the village pub where good food is served; ''The Buck' tearoom for coffees, lunches and great home-baking; and the community-run village store for your morning paper and provisions.
