This former gamekeeper's cottage, built in 1896, lies up a peaceful glen in the Galloway hills. Here you are away from traffic noise and street lights, and on a clear night you can really see the stars.
The garden is a haven for birdlife and red squirrels. There are many attractions of the area, with something to offer for all ages in any weather.
The tastefully modernised cottage has been refurbished to retain its original character and features, making it a comfortable family holiday home. It is approached from the Skyreburn road up a short track, through the field beside the cottage to a large fenced car parking area. The small Paradise burn is at the rear of the cottage, through a gate with a secure latch.
The beautiful Solway coast is just under three miles away, with superb beaches for swimming and watersports, and there are many golf courses to be enjoyed. Hill walking is on the doorstep and there are many hill lochs for fishing. Kirroughtree and Glen Trool, 7 Stanes mountain biking areas are nearby in the Galloway Forest park. Within 15 mins drive you'll find Laggan Outdoor (longest zipwire in Europe) and Cream o' Galloway, makers of delicious ice cream, has an adventure playground for all ages among its many activities.
