OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Stabling for 7 Horses, an indoor exercise area, great hacking routes through the local area, and access to various equestrian facilities locally.

 

 

For hill walkers, Gletablen Trool, the Galloway hills, and Southern Upland Way provide a variety of challenges together with wonderful scenery. There are mapped and signposted paths in and around the Machars peninsula. Galloway Forest Park has well-made paths of varying lengths and levels of exertion, for walking, cycling or horse-riding.

 

 

The quiet roads of The Machars provide probably the best cycling you will experience in a very long time and an ideal way to explore our natural treasures. South Scotland’s 7Stanes project is an exciting development of seven centres for mountain biking. The nearby Galloway Forest Park at Kirroughtree is one of these, is of world class and provides extensive biking on a variety of skill level tracks. 
Cycle hire is available. . We have an indoor lockable facility for bicycles.

There are some 30 exceptional golf courses in the region. A dozen of these are within comfortable reach of our cottages, including three of the “Tiger Trail” courses. 
Gateway to Golf Passes: 3- and 6-round passes can be obtained at local Tourist Information Centres or e-mail: info@dgtb.visitscotland.com; Visitors to our cottages can obtain a £3.00 discount from green fees at Newton Stewart Golf Club.

The rivers Cree and Bladnoch and the Palnure Burn provide good salmon and sea-trout sport. Trout and coarse fishing is abundantly available from lochs and rivers in the area. Sea fishing can also be enjoyed from nearby Isle of Whithorn and Garlieston.

The Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest local reserve in the UK. It has internationally and nationally important numbers of wildfowl, in particular some 7000 pink-footed geese in March/April. A wetland habitat has been created by the local wildfowling club in co-operation with local and national authorities which is increasing the numbers of nesting birds. A bird hide has been built overlooking this site.

Perhaps the most exciting of all the developments is the siting of video cameras on the Galloway ospreys’ nest. This can be viewed during spring and summer in the Nature Reserve Interpretation Centre in Wigtown County Buildings. 
There is also a camera scanning the wetlands and part of the inks.
At most times of the year, but particularly in late Autumn through to Spring, many varieties of birds visit the area. These together with the native birds make the area a rewarding one for bird watchers.

The area is rich in Scotland’s history with many standing stones, stone circles and chambered cairns, as well as old churches and castles. 
The earliest Christian activity is recorded as starting at Whithorn with St Ninian at about AD 397.
The Historic Scotland website gives details of many of the local historic sites, and the region's museums are listed on the visitScotland website.

The dark skies of this area have been found to be ideal for astronomy, with a thriving local astronomical society. The official designation of Galloway Forest Park as a “Dark Sky Park” acknowledges this quality of our environment.
Of course, you could also simply step out of the cottage on a clear night with a pair of binoculars, or your own telescope, and be delighted by the night skies above. 

We also have some first-class visitor attractions at WigtownWhithornNewton Stewart, and further afield, including Bladnoch Distillery, Creetown Gemrock Museum, and Cream o' Galloway at Gatehouse.
