Just added to our portfolio: Airds Stables a cosy first floor flat, has a quiet peaceful location in the grounds of Airds House adjacent to the shores of Loch Ken.
Perfect for a country get away, the flat is furnished and equipped to a high standard and provides excellent holiday accommodation for both full week and weekend breaks. Whilst in totally rural surroundings, the thriving market town of Castle Douglas is within a 15 minute drive and nearer to hand is a popular pub with restaurant and small village shop in Crossmichael.
Loch Ken is within stumbling distance and is a mecca for water sports with a marina, water skiing and the well know Galloway Activity Centre offering instruction and hire of boats, canoes, windsurfers etc plus other adventure pursuits. The Loch is a well known coarse fishery, with boats available for hire.
The flat is ideally located for birdwatchers both on the loch and in the Galloway Forest Park and also on the Red Kite Trail.
The Forest Park is renowned for its wild life and also has dark sky status for star watching; on clear nights it is fabulous to see the starry sky so clearly. If you fancy using a large telescope then book a visit to the Dark Sky Observatory which is about a half an hour drive away, the resident Astronomer gives regular talks about the night sky but you need to book ahead.
There are lovely walks and cycle routes in the immediate area and a network of quiet country roads, for the mountain bike enthusiast, the nearby 7Stanes mountain bike network provides the ultimate challenge.
The Southern Upland Way long distance path is within a short drive as is the stunning Solway Coast with its safe sandy beaches and dramatic rocky headlands.
There are a number of golf courses nearby to suit all abilities, New Galloway course has a pretty setting and offers wonderful views across the area.
