Nestled in an idyllic private woodland setting, Forest Lodge offers a lovely relaxing retreat close to Kippford, often described as Scotland’s ‘Riviera’.  Locals refer to this area as ‘The Golden Triangle’ - Colvend, Rockcliffe and Kippford - and frequent visitors understand why. The climate is temperate as Galloway is touched by the Gulf Stream with many golden, sandy, and often empty beaches to explore. For excellent views of the Rough Firth estuary, the Jubilee Path is highly recommended. This was named to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee and is the main path between Kippford and the equally charming village of Rockcliffe.  There are wonderful views out to sea, and the path passes Mark of Mote, a 100-foot high granite outcrop, with a Dark Age settlement on top. Rockcliffe and Sandyhills (with a beautiful sandy beach as its name implies!) are small Victorian bathing resorts close by.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay,,our dog Jack loved the security and was able to roam at will. The area was most interesting ,we would recommend a visit to Threve Gardens, on a warm day it was wonderfull.
