  • Mr Clarke

    “Good bits. Lovely cottage in a beautiful area that is clean and well equipped.”

    Bad bits. No Broadband. Stove is too big for the room so lounge is unbearably hot whilst rest of the property is luke warm. Had a power cut one evening and overnight. Only realised the following morning that the electricity supply is by coin operated meter and didn't bring a supply of coins. Should have been made clear in the description beforehand so you can plan ahead and avoid any inconvenience.

The property

Stranraer 6 miles.

Charming stone-built detached former gamekeeper's cottage, superbly situated on a country estate near Stranraer in Wigtownshire in Scotland's Dumfries and Galloway region.

Surrounded by a large garden, this cottage is ideal for a family or a couple seeking a haven of tranquillity while exploring this diverse part of Scotland.

All ground floor, there are two cosy bedrooms and the accommodation is completed by a kitchen and a sitting room with a welcoming woodburner.

Outside is a large garden to the rear with a patio and is the perfect place to relax with a drink in the tranquil atmosphere and plan your activities.

The garden also attracts red squirrels, roe deer and a wide variety of birds.

Sitting in the country estate of Lochnaw Castle, the property is surrounded by delightful woodland walks, whilst fishing is available at Kirkland Fishery in the nearby village of Leswalt.

Stranraer is six miles to the east and is a bustling town in its own right on the shores of Loch Ryan.

This is a delightful cottage in a wonderful country setting which can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

About the location


Lochans 3 miles; 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.
