    “Rose Cottage is in a stunning setting - the cottage was very clean and everything you need is provided including wood for the log burner.”

    We were very fortunate with the weather and loved sitting outside watching & listening to the wildlife in the garden and trying to guess each species of bird. There are lots of beautiful clean beaches just a short car drive away but there are also walks from the door. It was lovely to meet Caroline-the owner, who also gave advice on local walks and also thanks to her for the Wine & Cakes - delicious. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone who wants to get away ...

I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone who wants to get away from it all for a quiet break in the countryside.

About the location

STRANRAER

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.
