  • "The property was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was provided."

    It has been fitted out to a very high standard. However we were disappointed with the shower cubicle---it was much too small and made having a shower quite uncomfortable. Also the basket provided in the shower for storing shower gel etc. was hopeless given where it was hanging(over the shower fitting)---it was quite difficult to fit stuff in. This would not stop us from staying at the property again.

  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at Oyster Catcher."

    It’s in a very quiet location and very close to the beach. The weather was very wet, so we were glad to have a cosy cottage to come back to. Thank you for letting us stay in it. People in the area are very friendly. We enjoyed an evening at the Ship Inn and joined in with the Shanty Singers. Great fun

  • "I don't know why this cottage isn't classed as 5 stars because I don't know what could really be improved."

    Everything is elite here, possibly access to back garden could be more secure but it was never really an issue. The facilities are brilliant, very fast WiFi and top rate kitchen. A rare place that not only allows dogs but provides a throw so my dog could be on the sofa as well. I've never come across that before. The Ship Inn nearby and the store just minutes walk away cater to everything I need. The house is very secure as on the odd days it was very windy you couldn't hear it much inside. A wonderful home

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    All appliances were very modern and the house was spotless. The house was in the centre of Drummore and close to the pub and the shop and was very close to stunning views. Drummore was a great place to relax for a week.

  • "Heating/Water system was hard to understand, not enough hot water for 2 people to have a bath/shower after wach other & took a long time to reheat water."

    An easy to use help card would be useful, as the new Heat pump system was hard to understand.

    Thanks very much for your feedback. Sorry to hear you struggled with the heating system. We take all feedback on board and will look at how we can make the instructions simpler for the future. Property Owner

The property

Oystercatcher is a bright and airy bungalow positioned in the quaint village of Drummore, Scottish Lowlands; it is the most southerly village in Scotland!

This two-bedroom property enjoys partial sea-views and is just paces away from fantastic beaches and amenities.

It is family and pet-friendly, so bring along your loved ones and leave your vehicle in the off-road parking space.

Step inside to the entrance hallway, where you can kick off your sandy shoes, ready to explore the scenic surroundings.

Locate the navy blue kitchen, fitted with the amenities you need to make simple yet satisfying meals; it has an electric oven, five burner induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and a coffee maker for a frothy coffee in the morning.

From here, follow onto the living/dining room, a space that blends seamlessly together living and dining; it has a four-seater dining table, a plush sofa, and a Smart TV for when you want to veg out.

Watch the sunset from the enclosed, rear garden with a cold beverage in hand whilst your furry friend sprawls out on the lawn.

As the evening winds to a close, retire inside and wash the day away in the bathroom with either a soak amongst the bubbles in the bath or a quick shower.

When sleep calls, there are two bedrooms, with a light grey décor, so you can choose between a super-king-size and a twin bedroom.

A short stroll will lead you to Drummore Bay Beach; here you will find clear water and a great selection of wildlife and afterwards you can refuel at Mariners Coffee Shop or the Ship Inn.

Just a short drive south will take you to the most southerly point in Scotland, the Mull of Galloway, one of the best places in the UK to see dolphins, porpoises and sea birds.

You can climb to the top of the lighthouse and take in the sights or take a stroll around the peninsula.

Visit Stranraer and enjoy all the history and natural beauty that this town has to offer!

Agnew Park is a perfect place to take a stroll and relax, while the Castle of St. John and Stranraer Museum offer a fascinating look into the past.

for the largest forest in the UK, venture to Galloway Forest Park, where you can spend the day exploring rich woodlands and enjoying picnics together.

Don’t forget to take some spare carrots to feed the red deers!

For a blend of country and coast, choose a stay at Oystercatcher.

About the location

DRUMMORE

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.

Please Note from March 2023 - a new house is being built in the vicinity of the property there may be some associated disturbance during the day
