    “The cottage was clean and comfortable but the location very isolated.”

    This was not made clear in the description. It was a mile down a remote farm road/track to the main road into Castle Douglas, and almost a further mile into the town.

    It gives us great pleasure when we read that you found the cottage both clean and comfortable. We sincerely appreciate, and thank you for these favourable comments. Also, we acknowledge your remarks regarding the Cottage location, and wish to respond. Garden Cottage is furnished with a private, tarmac avenue, which is accessible via a single lane Council road (approximately 0.5 miles in length). We wish to clarify the commencement of this roadway is within three hundred meters from the thirty mile speed limit, on the main Ayr Road, leading to Castle Douglas. Therefore, we are unable to except the suggestion it is in anyway remote or isolated. Throughout the past twenty years, this is the first time anyone has raised the issue of the location being remote,or isolated and indeed our Guests have highlighted the benefits of the conveniently situated Cottage. Some visitors reporting they have walked to Castle Douglas for a meal; a distance of approximately 1.5 miles. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Dalbeattie 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 9.5 miles; Dumfries 18 miles.

The attractive country town of Castle Douglas is nestled in the southwest of Scotland, in the Dumfries and Galloway region. Castle Douglas is known locally as the 'Food Town', playing host to a large selection of independent food shops, as well as a range of wonderful pubs and restaurants. The town provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast, with its miles of beautiful beaches and scattering of pretty fishing villages. Carlingwark Loch lies just south of the town, a large, freshwater lake, great for coarse fishing and sailing. The loch itself hosts a selection of small islands, while the shores are peppered with picturesque picnic spots. Hop aboard a boat and venture to Threave Castle, perched on an island in the River Dee, and explore its glorious gardens elsewhere on the estate, open to the public all year round. Dumfries and Galloway is an area renowned for its outdoor activities including bird watching, mountain biking, fishing, star-gazing and golfing. Practise your swing on the 18-hole golf course situated in the grounds of the former 18th century country mansion, Cally Palace. Pull on your walking boots and go hiking across west Scotland’s inspiring landscape, or sail along its wonderful coastline. Whatever you fancy for your holiday in Scotland, Castle Douglas is the perfect base for experiencing it all!
