  • "What a fabulous place to spend a couple of nights!"

    Immaculate cottage and had everything we needed. The views are spectacular and the decor, the use of the old outside toilet to house the recycling, and the lights along the track to the cottage (once dark) are lovely touches. Highly recommend this property. Be aware the upstairs bedroom really does have a low ceiling, our 6’2” tall son found it interesting but was fine once he was in the bed! Would be perfect for children. The hot tub is a lovely bonus. Thank you!

    Thank you. Our attic bedroom/sitting area are compact and will adjust this on our Cottage information. Feedback much appreciated. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was everything we could have wished for, and more!"

    We had a wonderful stay and cannot wait to return in the future. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we could have possibly needed for our stay and the welcome pack of milk, jams, butter and biscuits was a bonus extra that we all thoroughly enjoyed - especially my 12 year daughter! Thank you for a perfect “staycation” at the beautiful Collieston Cottage.

    Thank you so much. Pleased you enjoyed your stay in our new venture. Look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

About the location


Castle Douglas 18 miles; Gretna 30 miles; Kirkcudbright 40 miles; Lake District National Park 50 miles;

Known as the Queen of the South, Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh and is the largest town in south west Scotland. It lies close to the mouth of the River Nith as it opens into the Solway Firth. Its origins are mysterious and are believed to involve at various times the ancient Romans, St Ninian and there is evidence of King Arthur having fought battles in the area. It is also held that Malcolm Canmore and William the Conqueror met here in the 11th century and William Wallace pursued the English through the surrounding Nith valley 200 years later. Robert the Bruce killed his rival John Comyn in the Greyfriars Kirk in Dumfries and Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed in the town for a few days in the mid 18th century and the poet Robert Burns moved to Dumfries in 1791 and staying until his death five years later. Today Dumfries is a bustling popular town with much to offer the visitor. Its location makes it ideal for exploring the coastline with its sandy beaches and rocky inlets to the Galloway Hills and Ae forest offering superb walking and cycling on the famous 7 stanes trails. Visit stunning Caerlaverock Castle and Nature Reserve or indulge in some high octane excitement with the Scottish Rally based in Dumfries each summer.
