    • “Everything was lovely - very clean and well stocked with everything you would need. Would come back.”

    • “The cottage was situated within a beautiful area and the complex was very well appointed and maintained. Due to the isolation of the cottage it was very quiet at night leading to a good nights sleep.”

    Mr Watson, Bury, May 2015

    • “Warm and cosy, this was a perfect base to explore the lovely Isle of Whithorn and the surrounding area. It was a very easy 'home from home' for our short break, with lots of hot water for showers on return from a hard day's walking, and an evening of chill out film nights.”

    Miss Squires, Hexham, April 2015

    • “A lovely, comfortable cottage in a peaceful location, with outstanding scenery and lovely walks. Came back home feeling very refreshed.”

    Mrs Tomlinson, Washington, October 2014

    • “The chalet, the area, the people, the weather, everything! Cannot make a negative comment about the whole experience.”

    Ms Birbeck, Crook, September 2014

    • “It is very quiet and peaceful at Laigh Isle. The property had everything we needed and the biscuits and milk in the kitchen when we arrived were very thoughtful. Will definitely go back. Perfect base for exploring.”

About the location


Newton Stewart 20 miles.

The picturesque village of the Isle of Whithorn, though no longer an island, nestles around its natural harbour on the southernmost tip of the Machars Peninsula, designated as an outstanding conservation area. The village has a long history of seafaring and trade, which dates back to the Vikings. The arrival in 397 of Ninian, Scotland's first missionary and saint, is thought to be the beginning of Scotland's Christian history, and the remains of the 13th century chapel can still be seen at the end of the harbour. A short, gentle climb will take you to the distinctive white tower - the Cairn - which has been a mariner's landmark for close on two centuries. Today the harbour is popular with visiting leisure sailors and with local boats fishing for crabs, lobsters and scallops. The area is steeped in history with numerous sites ranging from Mesolithic and Iron Age forts, standing stones and 'cup and ring’ markings, an 11th century chapel and castles from the era of Robert the Bruce. Wigtown, Scotland's first book town, can be reached within a short drive, and has over a dozen book shops in which one can easily lose an hour or two! With beaches, forests, golf courses, gardens and churches to visit, this is an ideal base for discovering this corner of Scotland.
