Scottish Cottages

The Scottish Regional Specialist - Fantastic properties in the most favourable locations. No one knows Scotland better!


This 19th century cottage oozes character and charm within the pretty little village of Borgue near Kirkcudbright.

Rowan Cottage was built in 1843 as a ’wee free’ church, a  branch of the Church of Scotland famously strict in its religious practices. The beautiful, old beams throughout the property are testament to its history and a delightful character feature. This lovingly furnised property is also beautifully furnished over the festive period. A handy booster seat which can be attached to the dining chairs is provided for your little ones. "Out of the world and into Borgue" is a local saying aptly describing this pretty little village, which is surrounded by beautiful beaches, green and pastoral landscape and amazing little towns each with their own fascinating history. The name Borgue is derived from the Gaelic word ’Burg’ meaning ’little hill’. The village itself is set amidst the rolling hills of  Galloway, a delightful and challenging landscape for all those who enjoy a  good walk!

    It should be made clear in the description that the property is not detached and is one of three connected cottages. Also that the car parking is shared. The garden (lawned area) was disconnected from the house which might be a problem for parents keeping an eye on small children, seeing that it is situated close to the road. Unfortunately there were one or two minor cleanliness problems, a white settee was dirty, though throws had been left on it presumably to cover this up. Also crockery was chipped and not clean in some cases. Internet connection was slow and sporadic. We couldn't find a fire extinguisher (thankfully one wasn't needed) Despite these shortcomings the cottage was lovely, comfortable and warm, with lots of logs available for the wood burner and in an ideal situation to walk or drive to nearby places. Despite our criticisms we did enjoy our stay.

    We had an amazing holiday. Borgue is so beautiful, surrounded by beaches and lovely countryside. There is so much to do in Galloway. Rowan Cottage is the perfect base, homely with lots of extras such as a garden hammock, a shed with bikes, books, games. I would recommend to anyone. We fell in love with the place and will definitely be back!

    lovely cottage but the beds were not good for us, we are all very tall and my two teenage sons slept with feet hanging over the matrass. Other than that lovely cottage, cosy fire, spacious and really good location for outings in Galloway

    House was lovely and well equipt. Location for exploring Kirkcudbright and beaches was great. Local hotel owners were friendly and the food was good pub food. Only snags for us were the layout of the garden did not really allow for flying footballs with the road being alongside. Disappointed as the photograph did not really show this and we would of booked elsewhere for the children had we had known. On arrival the use of room infusers and pot pourri was over-powering. Once we had removed these, my wife's allergic reaction calmed down.

    Excellent holiday at Rowan Cottage, beautiful area and we were fortunate with the weather being lovely. Only issue we had was that we had thought from the initial details given that the accommodation was detached so initial confusion re the set up. As it was we had a quiet week as neighbours were away for 5 days.
