Unfortunately, the electricity supply to the cottage only allows one shower in the property. That is why the bathroom has a bath in it and the shower-room has a shower in it. After going into the cottage on a Saturday after guests had left we...More

About the neighbourhood
This area is steeped in history and there are many abbeys and castles to visit. It is a bird watcherparadise 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 inte...
