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


A super family property opposite the River Bladnoch in a rural location , ideal for touring the Dumfries and Galloway coast, forests and countryside.

River Cottage is a typical Galloway terraced cottage and stands across from the lovely River Bladnoch, with a children’s play area 110 yards away. It offers a cosy interior and a lovely enclosed garden with views over open farmland beyond. Whilst retaining the outward appearance of a Galloway cottage, the interior has been completely updated making it a comfortable holiday retreat. A lovely wood burning stove in the lounge is particularly attractive. The garden is a delight for both dogs and children being completely enclosed and there are facilities to wash bikes outside. Set in a quiet location in a row of houses, the cottage is a short stroll from the country pub and restaurant, and within a few minutes’ drive of Wigtown, the Book Town, and close to Newton Stewart where there are many excellent shops and places to eat. With the Galloway Forest and Dark Skies Park close by, the cottage is ideally placed to explore the beauty of south west Scotland. Perfect for walkers, golfers and cyclists, with Glentrool, Kirroughtree and the 7Stanes mountain bike trails nearby, as well as a great choice of golf courses. There is an abundance of fishing, bird watching, beautiful and exotic gardens, many rocky coves, sandy beaches and quaint villages to explore along the Machars Peninsula.

    We had the most perfect 4 night stay here over Hogmanay. The cottage is beautiful and spotlessly clean and was so cosy. The back garden was perfect for our dog too. We went for many lovely walks in the area and then came home to curl up in front of the fire - bliss! Neil and Linda were great hosts and we would love to return before long.

    It is deffo worth another visit. There is enough going on in the area for an active holiday for families and if you want peace and quiet you can have both. It is brilliant that it is dog friendly.

    Probably the best holiday cottage we have stayed in the house was great and the garden was fantastic for anyone with a pet,the wifi was really a lot better than i thought,overall it was a great holiday house and a credit to the owners.
