Beautiful apartment with lovely views over the lake. We enjoyed the hot tub each evening. There are plenty of good restaurants and take always around. Nikos is a must. The Galloway Activity Centre offers good water sports . Galloway Forest is not far neither are the beaches at Sandyhills and Kippford.

We felt relaxed & at home from the moment we arrived. The view of Carlingwark loch from the upstairs sitting room is fantastic & even better when youre sitting out on the very comfortable balcony enjoying a glass of wine. No need to worry about noise from the park at night as its so quiet. The apartment is very well equipped & a real home from homeRead more. The beds were so comfy & the bathrooms are ultra modern & spotlessly clean. The hot tub at the end of the day is a very welcome added extra. Hide

A great property with good quality furnishings and facilities. Welcome hamper was also great and gave a good flavour of local produce. The garden and hot tub very private and was a welcome way of relaxing after a day of exploring the local area. Highly recommend this, we had a fantastic time, even when it rained.

The property owners have thought of everything and more, that you need when being away from home. From a really detailed guide of the holiday home and goods within it, to the surrounding area and even small things like pegs. There was a lovely welcome pack too which included many local products.
