    “Absolutely loved our stay at Borgan Cottage, it’s set in such peaceful surroundings with amazing walks on the door step!”

    Felt like a home from home and will hopefully be staying again in the future!

    Felt like a home from home and will hopefully be staying again in the future! With our favourite walk being the scenic route around Loch Trool, with such amazing views, even on a rainy day! An amazing holiday to spent all day out adventuring with the dogs then back to sit all cosy in front of the fire or even on clear nights out watching the stars around the fire pit!

The property

Newton Stewart 8.6 miles.

Borgan Cottage is a charming remote cottage, nestled in the scenic village of Bargrennan, Dumfries and Galloway.

Surrounded by beautiful forests, in a national Dark Sky area, this welcoming property is the perfect retreat for families wanting to escape reality to the Scottish Highlands.

Be enchanted by the views of the great outdoors as you pull up to the home, and head inside and hang up your coats, before making your way into the kitchen/diner where you can pop the kettle on and enjoy a warm cup of tea around the dining table whilst discussing your holiday itinerary.

Take your bags through to the homey double bedroom and place your belongings in the spacious storage provided.

Guests staying in the ground-floor twin bedroom will be delighted by the short walk to the downstairs bathroom, where they can treat themselves to an afternoon soak in the bath or a thoughtful morning shower.

Following a tiring expedition to the local area, allow yourself to rest up on the sofas in the sitting room, where on a cold winter's day you can get nice and toasty by the woodburning stove.

Make the most of the conservatory, a bright and airy room that is great for socialising with friends or indulging in a book during some alone time.

Step out from the large patio doors and into the garden for a spot of alfresco dining in the summertime.

Climb the staircase up to the ample first floor where you will discover a further two bedrooms, one twin and one double, as well as a chill out area, shower room and plenty of extra storage space.

Back outside, you will find an outbuilding containing logs for your woodburning stove, as well as a drying area.

A short drive will take you to the Wood of Cree where you can enjoy a peaceful stroll.

For a more challenging walk, visit the stunning Cairnsmore of Fleet.

Stock up on food and supplies in the burgh town of Newton Stewart where you can also find some delightful eateries and pubs.

If an escape to the Scottish countryside is calling your name, stay at Borgan Cottage.

About the location


Port William 17.2 miles; Kirkcudbright 28 miles; Castle Douglas 30.4 miles;

The market town of Newton Stewart, famous for its salmon and trout fishing, lies in a superb location between the serene rolling countryside of the Machars to the south and the Galloway Forest Park to the north. The area is steeped in history. The first Christian missionary to Scotland landed at The Machars, founding the first church in AD 397 in Whithorn. The Whithorn Dig Visitor Centre lies on the site and displays material dug up over years of excavations. The beautiful coastline is a mixture of sandy beaches and rocky shores teeming with birdlife, whilst inland there is superb walking country to be discovered in the Galloway Hills and Forest Park. Sailing, riding and fishing are all available locally and there are plenty of excellent courses to keep the keen golfer busy.

Note: Weekly bookings to start and end on a Saturday only. Min stay is 3 nights.
