    Visited this cottage with a friend and 2 dogs the week before Christmas and what a fabulous time we had. The house feels private due to the well maintained private garden despite the fact these are plenty of other houses along the shore and a large caravan park behind.Theres plenty of room for the dogs to wander around safely with steps down to the beach which can be a bit steep . There's lots of walking on the beach when the tides out and the uninterrupted views are stunning. The cottage itself was compact,warm and cosy.We took rugs for the older dog as the floors wooden in the loungs.Take everything with you in winter as the nearest shop is a few miles away and there's only one local pub open Thursday to Sunday.Theres a lot more facilities available during the summer months. We were looking for somewhere relaxed and comfortable and this wee cottage ticked all the boxes. Hope to return again.

About the location

SOUTHERNESS

Castle Douglas 19 miles; Dalbeattie 13 miles; Dumfries 16 miles.

Southerness is a small coastal village established in the late 18th century, which looks out over the Solway Firth, and forms part of the Colvend coast, one of the finest stretches of coastline on the 'Scottish Riviera'. Home to two pubs, a village store, a leisure centre with a pool and two miles of sandy beaches with sand dunes, rock pools and Gulf Stream warmed waters, and one of the oldest lighthouses in Scotland, built in 1748, it has everything you will need for a relaxing holiday. The nearby Criffel Hill rises to 569m, offers wonderful views of the farmland and the sands of the Nith Estuary below, and provides great walking opportunities. The Southerness Championship Golf Course adjoins the village and offers panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Cumbrian Lake District to the south and the Galloway Hills to the west. A great location, with something to keep everybody occupied.
