About the location


Castlewigg 2 miles; Wigtown 10.5 miles; Newton Stewart 17 miles.

The former Royal Burgh of Whithorn on the Machars Peninsula in Dumfries and Galloway is renowned for having the first recorded Christian church is Scotland. Built by St Ninian around 397, the site of the Candida Casa, or White/Shining House, is now home to the parish church. The area of Whithorn is rich in history and is also home to a medieval priory and an archaeological site. The distinctive shape of Whithorn, with its spacious central area and narrow entrance-ways of elegant Georgian houses, displays its medieval heritage. The Machars and Rhins of Galloway are also home to spectacular gardens, a result of the Gulf Stream and mild climate. Logan Botanic Gardens, the Aldouran Wetland and the spectacular gardens of Castle Kennedy are all a must see. To the north of the Machars are the Galloway Hills, offering walking to all levels as well as world class mountain biking. Golf, fishing and wildlife spotting are well catered for and the sandy beaches of Monrieth, Garleston, Glenluce and Rockcliffe will delight any visitor.

We made Whithorn our base, one of the party was brought up in the Isle of Whithorn so he enjoyed the cottage and surrounding area - brought back memories for him. The locals were friendly and would recommend the local pub The Railway Inn. The lady who came to see us at the cottage on our arrival was very helpful and brought along a treat each for our two whippets which they appreciated as well. Would recommend the cottage and have already done so on our Facebook pages to our friends and family. Thank you for making our holiday break away so special.

The cottage was lovely, would definitely recommend.

Mr Rooney, Maryport, December 2013

This is a wonderfully refurbished semi-detached single floor house with all the ornaments, entertainment facilities and many unexpected extras. It is spotlessly clean, cosy and boasts a good kitchen and spacious and very comfortable lounge room, complete with wood burning fire. The district abounds in history, rural scenery, walks and a beautiful coastline . Parking is at the door, as is a regular bus service to nearby towns. There are shops only a stone's throw away and the owner is friendly and informative. This is a jewel of a place at a very reasonable price.

Mr Russell, Kununurra, December 2013

Very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Really enjoyed our stay as did the dogs. Looking forward to our next visit. Very comfortable cottage, everything was described.
