About the location

Palnackie

Dalbeattie 3.5 miles; Castle Douglas 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 12.5 miles.

The small village of Palnackie nestles amongst lush woodland and remains much as it was when it was a thriving inland port servicing Dalbeattie and Castle Douglas. Today, fishing and pleasure craft use the small harbour near the Solway Coast, and the village offers brightly coloured houses, a shop, Post Office, café/restaurant and a pub. Auchencairn, just along the coast, is a wonderful example of an unspoilt traditional Scottish village and spectacular coastal and forest walks surround the village, offering open views across the Solway Estuary with its cliffs, beaches, hills and islands. The nearby towns of Dalbeattie and Kirkcudbright offer a full range of amenities, and this is an ideal location for exploring the Solway Coast, the forests and hills of Galloway, the 7stanes mountain biking trails and the superb Dark Skies on offer in this delightful corner of Scotland.

Great property in a rural location. View across the valley was stunning. Large kitchen with big dining room table. 4 large bedrooms. Bathrooms with large walk in showers. And somewhere safe to store the mountain bikes - could easily have fitted 8 in there. Martin, the owner, was superb. My mother was taken ill at home and I had to leave early, leaving my friend behind. With only enough car room for 2 of the 3 Martin offered to store our equipment and to take the stranded person to Carlisle station, which is at least 60 miles away. The rest of the party enjoyed the stay - just wished I could have shared it.

Great base for biking the Western Stanes trail centres. Good space and a lovely location. Helpful host.

Mr Bennett, Boston, October 2013

Good location - nice owner who was very helpful - peace and quiet. Lots of things to do in the area. Lovely beaches and walks, a really relaxing break.

Mrs Leeming, Nairn, October 2013

This was the best holiday we had for years. It was the third time we were staying in a self-catering cottage, and this was the best. The owner of the property was a wonderful host, he came around and suggested few places to visit. As we had not made any special plans we followed his advice and it was superb. Each one in our group from the age of 6 to 60 enjoyed the trip. We would recommend this place to all, and we would certainly love to come back.
