  • "Thankfully the owner made us aware before our stay of the dampness of the walls in the living room due to the recent storm before arrival though it had no real impact on our stay, we appreciated the heads up and apart from that the house was wonderful."

    The house was warm, inviting, clean, had lots of character and they kindly left a little gift basket for us. I cannot fault this property at all it's location was a treat as you can walk the ancient Abbey next door or walk and talk to friendly locals.The place was quiet and cosy and with it's hearth lit in an evening couldn't have had a nicer stay would highly recommend to anyone.

    We are so very happy you enjoyed your holiday in our lovely little cottage and that the damp due to recent storms did not spoil your stay in any way. Property Owner

The property

A superb, semi-detached cottage near the Whithorn Priory, on the Machars Peninsula in Scotland’s beautiful Dumfries and Galloway.

Fully refurbished and providing stylish, quality accommodation, Priory Walk, a self-catering cottage is the ideal spot for friends or families who wish to explore this historic region of Scotland.

The cottage has three bedrooms on the first floor accommodating a total of six across two king-size double bedrooms and a small double room; one of the king-size rooms has its own en-suite WC, which is accessed down a couple of steps from the bedroom.

The ground floor of this superb cottage has a delightful sitting room with a woodburning stove, ideal for those cooler evenings.

The kitchen/diner opens into a charming patio at the side, where you can enjoy your coffee as you plan the day ahead.

Located near the centre of the village of Whithorn, this lovely cottage is a short stroll from the historic 5th century priory and museum, open from March to October and home to a superb collection of carved stones.

Follow in the footsteps of a king on The Robert the Bruce Trail or delve deeper back in time to discover more about Scotland’s oldest Christian community, dating from 500 AD.

The tranquil fishing village of the Isle of Whithorn is a short drive down to the coast, while Wigtown is host to a Book Festival each autumn, as well as being Scotland’s Book Town.

With the rugged coastline and sandy beaches, as well as the majesty of the Galloway Hills Forest Park, nearby, there is something for everyone at Priory Walk, whatever the weather.

About the location


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, Garlieston, and along the whole of Luce Bay will delight any visitor.
