  • “This was our third time at this delightful cottage.”

    It is peaceful and remote and the only sounds are from the birds which enjoy feeding on the patio and the cows and calves which pass quietly to and from the cottage. We never tire of sitting looking out of the windows drinking in the scenery. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for a holiday. Some nice touches when you arrive - milk, cake, wine etc. It is approached along a rough track which is no problem as long as you take your time. There is a super new gate into the parking ...

    It is peaceful and remote and the only sounds are from the birds which enjoy feeding on the patio and the cows and calves which pass quietly to and from the cottage. We never tire of sitting looking out of the windows drinking in the scenery. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for a holiday. Some nice touches when you arrive - milk, cake, wine etc. It is approached along a rough track which is no problem as long as you take your time. There is a super new gate into the parking area which is so much easier than the old one! We recommend that the person whose task it is to open the gate always wears wellies as the field/cow side can be somewhat muddy at times. A 10 minute walk across the fields will get you to the coast path and then to St Ninian's cave. There is limited shopping at the very nice visitor centre in the Isle of Whithorn and they will order a daily newspaper for you if you request one. Internet access there too. The Steam Packet pub was most pleasant for a drink or meal. Poor shopping facilities in Whithorn itself but if you make the short drive over to Wigtown there is a Co-op there which we found to be excellent. We are looking forward to our next holiday there already booked for May 2021.

About the location

WHITHORN

Castlewigg 2 miles; Wigtown 10.5 miles; Newton Stewart 17 miles.

The former Royal Burgh of Whithorn on the Machars Peninsula in Dumfries and Galloway is renowned for having the first recorded Christian church is Scotland. Built by St Ninian around 397, the site of the Candida Casa, or White/Shining House, is now home to the parish church. The area of Whithorn is rich in history and is also home to a medieval priory and an archaeological site. The distinctive shape of Whithorn, with its spacious central area and narrow entrance-ways of elegant Georgian houses, displays its medieval heritage. The Machars and Rhins of Galloway are also home to spectacular gardens, a result of the Gulf Stream and mild climate. Logan Botanic Gardens, the Aldouran Wetland and the spectacular gardens of Castle Kennedy are all a must see. To the north of the Machars are the Galloway Hills, offering walking to all levels as well as world class mountain biking. Golf, fishing and wildlife spotting are well catered for and the sandy beaches of Monrieth, Garleston, and along the whole of Luce Bay will delight any visitor.
