Beautiful tranquil location. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The garden was lovely and secure for our 3 dogs. Hosts friendly and helpful. Each evening we walked up the driveway and never tired of the view of the Galloway hills beyond Lock Ken. We stood listening to the nearby brook and the wind - no traffic noise!! Overhead red kites soareRead mored and on the ground were wildflowers everywhere. If you enjoy nature, walking and feeling the breeze on your face then this is a perfect spot. Hide

Lovely cottage. Well equipped with a lovely enclosed garden for the dog. Exceptionally clean The cottage is a bit remote but if you don't mind driving lots of lovely places to visit. About 3 and a half miles to the nearest small village with a small shop. It's very well stocked. Sue left us some welcome groceries which was lovely. The roads near thRead moree cottage are in quite poor condition so watch out for potholes especially if it's raining as some are quite deep. But honestly a lovely place for a nice relaxing week Hide
