Skerrow provides luxury contemporary holiday accommodation for 4 in a traditional Galloway stone-built house, ensuring a wonderful holiday in the Scotland's smallest Royal Burgh. The apartment is owned by the New Galloway Community and has been recently renovated to provide fabulous accommodation in a quiet location off the High Street and with an attractive garden area to the rear. The New Galloway Community also own and operate the excellent licensed village shop next door. There is a busy arts centre at the Catstrand within a short stroll of the cottage and a number of hotels, restaurants and cafes in the area.

The town sits on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, 300 square miles of rugged wild land which is one of only four "Dark Sky Parks" in the western world. It has an excellent network of facilities for visitors which also links to the 7Stanes Mountain Bike routes. The forest park can be accessed by car, cycle and on foot and the Raiders Road forest drive is open at selected times of the year for cars to drive through less accessible parts of the forest. The forest park is a haven for wildlife and the local Red Kite Trail gives superb opportunities for seeing Red Kites and other birds.
There are numerous riverside and forest walks starting out and returning to the town. New Galloway golf course is just at the top of the High Street and there are other local courses within easy reach. If you would like more of a challenge the championship courses at Ayr and Southerness are within easy driving distance.

The nearby Loch Ken is a busy water sports destination with sailing, canoeing, water skiing and coarse fishing. The Solway Firth is also close by and provides a seascape contrast to the forests and hills around New Galloway. Although Galloway has no ‘Munros’, discerning hill walkers cherish the remoteness of the Rhinns of Kells, the Merrick and the wild Silver Flow country as well as coastal hills such as Criffel and Screel offering superb views across the Solway to Cumbria.

Scotland's culture and heritage can be explored at the numerous National Trust and Historic Scotland properties including Threave Castle near Castle Douglas and Broughton House in Kirkcudbright. Kirkcudbright itself is a bustling harbour town with historic connections to the Art World through the likes of the Glasgow Boys and Jessie King and hosts regular exhibitions in numerous galleries including the newly opened Kirkcudbright Galleries. The busy market town of Castle Douglas is also within easy reach offering a good variety of specialist independent local shops.
