The Lochan

Southern Scotland
4 Bedrooms
2 Bathrooms
8 Guests
2 Dogs

Set on a working farm, this modern, single level house is set in a stunning location beside a tranquil lochan teeming with wildlife and fish. Recently refurbished, offering luxurious accommodation for 8 with panoramic views across the surrounding fields and Galloway countryside. Fly fishing for Rainbow Trout for 2 rods on the adjacent Lochan Pond and nearby Fellcroft Loch is included on a catch and release basis, as is use of the owner’s tennis courts by prior arrangement and subject to availability.

In the local village is Dundrenann Abbey. A ruined Cistercian abbey where Mary Queen of Scots spent her last night in Scotland before being imprisoned in the Tower of London. The village also has a small tea room in the former village pub (check for seasonal opening hours). The Artists town of Kirkcudbright is a short drive away. Here you will find many interesting independent shops and art galleries hidden along its narrow closes. Broughton House and Garden, a National Trust for Scotland property are well worth a visit. For the young at heart Cream O'Galloway is within a 25-minute drive, not only do they produce organic ice cream and cheese with milk from their own dairy herd, but have several nature walks, and offer various cheese and ice cream making workshops throughout the year. Slightly further afield in Twynholm is The Cocoa Bean Factory where children can participate in chocolate workshops, there are also indoor & outdoor play areas. (The hot chocolate is a must!) For the more adventurous Loch Ken Activity Centre offer land and water-based activities. For those who simply want to relax and enjoy the tranquil surroundings there are plenty of opportunities for walking, be it hill cliff top or forest. Wildlife surrounds the property; you can relax on the spacious patio area and enjoy the tranquil setting with outstanding views to the sea in the distance along with evening sunsets and the varied bird life. Although not within the Dark Skies Park, star gazing is outstanding as there is very little light pollution. Sandy beaches are within easy reach at The Dhoon, Brighouse Bay, Carrick and Sandgreen.

The Lochan is let weekly Saturday to Saturday, short breaks are accepted throughout the year excluding school holiday periods, Christmas & New Year.
