Stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages in Dalbeattie, located in Dumfries and Galloway. Known as the granite town of south-west Scotland, Dalbeattie is within close proximity to several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Also, the town is situated 5 miles south-east of Castle Douglas and within easy access of the Solway Firth, a designated AONB. Take the kids mountain-biking at 7stanes, an exciting, family-friendly trail or visit The Galloway Activity Centre for a day of archery, sailing and windsurfing.
Discover Dalbeattie Forest situated close to Plantain Loch, perfect for strolls, hikes and biking. The forest is a mixture of deciduous and evergreen trees and it creates a green corridor between Dalbeattie and the coast. Walking trails to look out for, ranging from easy to strenuous, include the Birch Trail, Plantain Loch Trail, and the Quarry Trail. If you are bringing your bike, try out the Ironhash Trail, Moyle Hill Trail, and the Hardrock Trail. Also, go wildlife spotting in Dalbeattie’s Town Wood. It’s the perfect habitat to observe ducks and gulls (during the winter), and grey herons (in the summer). You can also see dragonflies, damselflies and grebes darting in and out of the reeds. Dalbeattie is home to one of Scotland’s largest sawmills and its granite quarries are still in use to this day. So, whether you’re interested in the wildlife, the walks or the beautiful surroundings, our self-catering accommodation in Dalbeattie offers the perfect home-from-home to experience the great Scottish outdoors from.
