  • "The cottage was perfect."

    A true home from home. Warm and cosy and spotlessly clean with the most comprehensive array of kitchen equipment you could ever need. Loved watching the red squirrels, woodpeckers, pheasants, finches and tits that seem to have taken up permanent residence in the garden. We were even lucky enough to see 4 deer wander through the garden-wonderful. Many thanks to Graham for allowing us to stay for 9 days to include my birthday without charging some of the exorbitant fees others wanted for anything outside 7 or 14 days even out of season. Had we had any problems Graham was always on hand without being intrusive in any way.

About the location


Portpatrick 8 miles; Newton Stewart 25 miles.

Stranraer, which became a Burgh of Barony in 1596 and a Royal Burgh in 1617, lies on the shores of Loch Ryan on the northern side of the isthmus joining the Rhins of Galloway to the mainland. There are many shops and cafes to while away an hour or two and the Stranraer Town Trail explains some of the fascinating history. For walkers, the Southern Upland Way touches Stranraer on its way through the Galloway Hills, having begun in Portpatrick, 7 miles to the west. Three nearby gardens are open to the public and well worth a visit at Castle Kennedy, Glenwhan and Logan. Stranraer has several beaches, however it is worth travelling to Sandhead and New England Bay for wonderful sandy beaches. A short drive south and you come to the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s southernmost point. The lighthouse on the headland looks over some of the last remaining sections of natural coastal habitat on the Galloway coast and an RSPB nature reserve has been set up to retain this spectacular and diverse area.
