Galloway Hills @ South West Images
The cottage is within a few hundred yards of the Scottish Coastal path (Core path so is ideal for walkers). It is also close to the route of the Southern Upland Way; a 212-mile walk from nearby Portpatrick on the west coast of Scotland heading east across Dumfries & Galloway and then on through the Scottish Borders until you reach Cockburnspath on the east coast!
If you fancy something a little less demanding, but equally spectacular, the Mull of Galloway Trail runs from the Mull of Galloway to Stranraer taking in spectacular sea and coastal views.
The trail continues north and joins the Loch Ryan Coastal Path to South Ayrshire where it links with the Ayrshire Coastal Path.
