This farm cottage has recently been carefully restored and refurbished to provide a comfortable accommodation on farmland, with just a couple of minutes walk from the beach.
Overlooking Luce Bay, beyond which can be seen the Machars of Galloway and, in the distance, the Galloway Hills, this sandy beach is a safe one which stretches towards Drummore. Drummore is Scotland’s most southerly village with an excellent shop, Post Office and a doctor’s surgery.
The bay then continues southward towards the Mull of Galloway, then into the Irish Sea which turns northward to Port Logan and as far as Ardwell Bay. The area is referred to locally as the "South Rhins". The area is one of the least developed and most natural coastlines in the British Isles. The area's spectacular coastal scenery is one of contrasts, with rugged cliffs and offshore islands. Along the coastline rocky bays alternate with sandy beaches.
Water sports, sea fishing, bird watching, walking, cycling, horse riding and golfing are just a few of the activities offered in this beautiful area. It is a photographer’s paradise with so many incredible gardens to visit. Warmed by the Gulf Stream they are full of exotic plants which would not survive in many other parts of Britain. Logan Botanic Garden is recognised as one of the most famous gardens in Britain.
Cameras are a ‘must’ for those who want to try to capture the sight of thousands of birds which nest on the precipitous headland of the Mull of Galloway, and on the heath land of the RSPB reserve with its prolific display of wild flowers. While there, a visit to the Lighthouse Exhibition, a recent addition to the attractions of the area, is recommended, and you may have the chance to climb up to the top of the lighthouse, designed by Robert Stevenson, which is open at weekends during the summer season. From there on a clear day you can see across to the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, the Machars of Galloway, and the Galloway Hills, up to the Mull of Kintyre and even over to the Lake District.
Take time to sample the excellent menu at the Gallie Craig Coffee House, its name derived from the craggy rock you will see from it of Scotland’s southernmost point. Walkers will be delighted to find a way marker close to the restaurant to guide them safely around these impressive cliffs – the walk can be extended to take in a lot more of the coastline and to cross over rolling farmland.
Low Curghie cottage offers a fully fitted and equipped kitchen with a dining area. Its spacious sitting room is bright and welcoming as are the two bedrooms – a double and a twin. The bathroom contains a large shower area. Outside there is a large attractive garden, with comfortable garden furniture, from where the surrounding fields can be seen with their variety of crops or grazing animals. There is off road parking available for two cars.
We hope you favourite holiday souvenir will be the memories you take home with you after your stay at Low Curghie Cottage in this wonderful part of Dumfries & Galloway.
