    “The owners were lovely - there if we needed them but not intrusive at all.”

    The heating was on on our arrival, there were fresh flowers in the lounge, milk in the fridge and a chocolate cake awaiting us. Little touches which meant a lot. The pub was only 5 minutes away walking where we were able to get a lovely meal. Friendly staff and dog friendly - what more could you ask for? Garlieston is a lovely little seaside village, very quiet at this time of the year which is what we were looking for. All in all, everything we could have wished for.

About the location

GARLIESTON

Wigtown 8 miles; Newton Stewart 14 miles.

Garlieston is a small coastal village that nestles on the Machars Peninsula, looking out over Wigtown Bay. It was popular as a fishing and cargo harbour until the 20th century, partly due to the extension of the Wigtownshire Railway. Worth noting is the part played by Garlieston in the development and testing of the Mulberry harbours that were deployed during the D-Day Landings. Today, the harbour provides berthing for leisure and fishing craft and offers a shop and Post Office as well as a traditional inn serving wholesome meals. The gardens of nearby Galloway House date from 1740 and offer a superb network of walks through magical woodland that lead towards the sweeping shoreline. Just north of Garlieston is Wigtown, once a thriving port, and now Scotland’s National Book Town. Apart from the attractive scenery and the varied coastline, the Machars Peninsular offers pretty towns such as Port William, still a working harbour, and Monreith, which was the home of writer Gavin Maxwell and offers a delightful, sandy beach.
