  • “Lovely clean cottage, all we needed was there.”

    The mattress on the single bed was a bit saggy - might have had its time. But all else was great.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Blue Sky Cottage. I am sorry you found the mattress on the single bed saggy, all mattresses at the property have recently been replaced to new high grade mattresses, so there should be no issues with sagging.

The property

Resting in Scotland's most southern village, Blue Sky Cottage is a charming mid-terrace property in Drummore, with a delightful blue front and an attractive interior, it is ideal for a family or group of four.

Blue Sky Cottage boasts a lovely garden and is within a stone's throw of all the amenities of the village, as well as just a short stroll to Drummore Beach and harbour.

Step inside and enter into the kitchen/diner on the left, where a lovely dining area offers a great place to come together at the end of the day, with a fitted kitchen home to all you need for a great self-catered stay.

Follow the hallway to the end to discover a handy boot room where you can hang coats and store outdoor clothing, before heading upstairs to find the sitting room on the first floor.

With a large corner sofa and a TV in here, you can relax into your evening, making use of the fabulous wine and drinks cooler in here too.

From here, you can access the long garden, with a picnic bench and furniture for alfresco dining and a long lawned area for children and dogs to enjoy!

Head back inside to find the family bathroom and two bedrooms, with a double room and a twin room to choose from, it's ideal for a small family or group of friends, or a couple.

From Blue Sky Cottage you can discover the delights of Drummore on foot, walking down to the coastline in minutes to find a gorgeous sandy beach, which enjoys a milder climate thanks to the Gulf Stream and is even home to some varieties of palm tree overlooking the beach, creating an almost Mediterranean feel!

Wander around the nearby attraction of Logan Botanic Garden, 'Scotland's Most Exotic Garden', to see a superb range of plant-life, great for plant enthusiasts or those who simply want to enjoy the serene setting.

Take a walk down to Scotland's most southerly point at the Mull of Galloway Experience where 115 steps bring you to the top of the lighthouse, which commands stunning views of the surrounding cliffs and coastline.

Wildlife enthusiasts should bring their binoculars and be on the lookout for peregrine falcons, kittiwakes, puffins and guillemots in this RSPB protected area too.

Take a boat trip from Drummore Harbour to go sea fishing at Luce Bay, famed for being an excellent spot for a catch at sea; you can take in the gorgeous scenery from the water too.

Spend a day exploring the port town of Stranraer with its main attraction being the Castle of St John, the ruins of a four-storey tower house built around 1500, as well as being home to a selection of shops and restaurants.

For a peaceful break in Scotland, enjoy the pretty Blue Sky Cottage.

About the location


Stranraer 17 miles.

The beautiful village of Drummore is not only the largest and most southerly of all the Rhins villages, it also happens to be the most southerly village in all of Scotland. Home to a Post Office, a charming harbour and three local pubs, this quiet and peaceful fishing village benefits from the warmth of the Gulf Stream and receives less rainfall than the rest of Western Scotland, whilst during the winter months the wind exhilarates walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. The surrounding landscape is wild and spectacular, boasting stunning views across Luce Bay to the Machars of Galloway, whilst across the peninsula visitors can enjoy views of Ireland's Antrim Hill, the Mountains of Mourne, the Cumbrian coast and the ridge of Mona's Isle on the Isle of Man, all visible on a clear day. With many visitor attractions throughout the area including fabulous beaches, bird sanctuaries and the historic market town of Stranraer, gateway to the Rhins, there's plenty to see and do at any time of year.
