Newton Stewart is a picturesque market town on the banks of the River Cree and ideally placed for wonderful days out in the nearby Galloway Hills and Galloway Forest Park.

Popular outdoor activities in the region include mountain biking (with no less than five of the renowned 7Stanes mountain biking centres in the region), pony trekking, fishing and hiking. There are particularly beautiful forest and hill walks through Glen Trool, a forest park located close to Newton Stewart. The Southern Upland Way, a long distance hiking trail leading to the Eastern coast of Scotland, also passes through the region between Portpatrick and Wanlockhead. Sailing is available on castle Loch and Loch Ken, which also offers wakeboarding and waterskiing.

Towns of note within the area include Dumfries (the administrative centre), Castle Douglas, Kircudbright, Whithorn and Stranraer. Wanlockhead, Drummore and Portpatrick are also worth a place on your agenda.

Scotland''s first church was established by St Ninian in Whithorn and the nearby St Ninian''s cave is a pilgrimage site. Visitors can view a small aquarium and feed deep-sea fish at the Port Logan Fish Pond, whereas Port Logan Botanic Gardens is an ideal location for a picnic. Nature lovers can enjoy the reserves at the Wood of Cree, the Mull of Galloway, Mereshead and Ken Dee Marshes.

Galloway is famous for its dairy industry. The Cream of Galloway ice-cream, produced near Kirkcudbright, is famous throughout the region. The region is noted for its pub food.

    Situated in a peaceful, remote location within the Galloway Forest Park and surrounded by rolling hills, this detached holiday cottage offers a truly relaxing break. Walking and cycling is available directly from the property. Glentrool, one of the 7 Stanes, with its many marked trails is close by and offers walking and cycling for all abilities, and access to the Merrick, South West Scotland’s highest mountain, offers more demanding walking. Dumfries and Galloway with its many sandy beaches, rocky coves and picturesque villages are nearby, and the area provides ample opportunity to relax in the wealth of scenic and historic attractions. With its famously mild climate and the balmy influence of the Gulf Stream, Galloway is home to some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens. Ayrshire with easy access to Culzean Castle and Country Park, a favourite with visitors, is a 30 minute drive away. South West Scotland has a wealth of golf courses.

    Harbour Retreat is a spacious terraced town house situated right by the harbour at Garlieston. Once part of a working mill this delightful development of houses overlooks the working harbour which is quickly becoming a centre for yachting and fishing. Harbour Retreat is situated over three floors and the master bedroom boasts its own balcony with sea views. What better way to start the day than with a morning coffee watching the boats arriving and leaving the harbour? Whilst the village itself has an excellent pub and restaurant, if you want to venture further afield, Newton Stewart has many excellent shops and places to eat. Wigtown, known as the ’book town’, is nearby and worth a visit.

    Harbour Retreat is ideally placed for visiting many attractions; from rugged coastlines to sandy beaches and the world famous Logan Botanic Gardens. To the side of the property there is access to a coastal path leading to Galloway House and Gardens, a sandy beach at Rigg Bay, where wartime Mulberry Harbours were tested, and leading onto the ruins of Cruggleton Castle. At the opposite end of the pretty town, having passed a delightful seafront crescent of pastel coloured fishermen’s cottages and the bowling green, is another gently shelving sandy beach.

    The Galloway Forest offers exceptional walking and cycling, including the world famous 7Stanes cycle trail. It is also the first designated Dark Sky Park outside the USA, meaning it has an exceptional quality of starry nights. There are a number of golf courses within driving distance or visit the RSPB Reserve at Drummore, the most southerly village in Scotland, where the sheer cliffs provide a habitat for an amazing array of birds including peregrine falcons, razorbills, guillemots and much more – oh – and the occasional puffin!

    Further to the west is Stranraer where you can get a ferry across to Northern Ireland. Stranraer is also the starting point for exploring the Rhins Peninsula, with the Mull of Galloway, the most southerly point of south west Scotland, where you can climb the light house or visit the RSPB visitor centre. In the opposite direction is the market town of Kirkcudbright with Maclellan’s Castle right in the centre of town! Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this area of Scotland enjoys a mild climate.

    In a stunning coastal location, Old Port Store is a charming and most distinctive detached home with its origins dating from circa 1820. The house is Category B listed by Historic Scotland and is situated about 200 yards from the shores of Luce Bay amidst beautiful rural surroundings.

The Old Port Store is perfectly placed for easy access to many of the attractions that this corner of Wigtownshire offers, including Mull of Galloway, beautiful gardens typified by Logan Botanic Gardens and Castle Kennedy Gardens.
