The property

Greystones Holiday Cottage is a beachfront terrace located in the Dumfries and Galloway village of Port William.

This charming accommodation enjoys beautiful views across Luce Bay to the Mull of Galloway, the southernmost tip of Scotland.

It is ideal for a small family or couple looking to get away-from-it-all and experience a rejuvenating holiday by the sea.

A cosy sitting room awaits your arrival after a bracing walk along the waterfront.

Kick off your shoes in the porchway and snuggle up on the sofa in front of the charming woodburning stove, which adds character to the room.

If nothing takes your fancy on TV, simply take in the views of the rocky shores directly across the road.

The galley-style kitchen boasts an electric cooker, so you can rustle up one of your home recipes and dine together at the table in the living room.

The ground floor also plays host to a single bedroom, with views out to the rear garden.

And at the top of the staircase is the family bedroom, with exposed beams and opportunity to catch the orange sun setting for another day, so long as the weather will allow.

Port William has a small harbour, where you can enjoy some commercial and recreational fishing.

There is also a general store, Post Office and within three miles is a golf course.There is also a licenced Cafe.

About the location


Wigtown 10 miles; Newton Stewart 17 miles.

Dating from the end of the eighteenth century, the fishing village of Port William sits on the east side of Luce Bay on the Machars peninsula in the Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland. There is much history in the area from early Christian sites through to more recent smuggling activities. The picturesque harbour that dates from the 18th century offers sea angling and is ideal for sailors too. There is a statue of a bronze otter erected in memory of Gavin Maxwell, author of ‘Ring of Bright Water’. His family home, Monreith House, is nearby and Maxwell used to exercise his otter on the beach below the house. Oscar Kokoschka, one of the twentieth century’s best known expressionist painters, spent time here during the Second World War. Today Port William is an attractive fishing village within easy reach of sandy beaches, a 9 hole links course just 2 miles away, walking and cycling in the Galloway hills and the cafés and shops of Wigtown, designated as Scotland’s first Book Town. Carnival Week is traditionally held in the first week in August with a wealth of events and attractions. Nature lovers will be drawn to the many nature reserves in the area as well as the childhood home of Gavin Maxwell at Elrig, just along the coast.
