Escape to Carraig Shepherd's Hut, a hidden gem in glorious Galloway! In its own private wild garden, this haven for two is a breath of fresh air - literally! Leave restored and invigorated and ready for whatever life's journey may bring.
Stay at Carraig Shepherd's Hut where rest and relaxation are guaranteed. Here you are surrounded by nature and wildlife in your own private wild garden, yet only a short drive along hardly-used roads to rugged beaches, wonderful lochs, moorland, mountains and so many places of interest. Set off for walks straight from the Steading. Situated at the edge of Galloway Forest Park the opportunities for walking and cycling, fishing and horse riding, birdwatching, or simply exploring this area of outstanding natural beauty are plentiful.
Carraig is self-catering. Inside there is everything you could need: A kitchenette with electric mini-oven and hotplates; full-sized fridge; woodburning stove (logs and kindling supplied); en-suite shower room with organic, parabens and palm-oil-free toiletries and proper flushing loo (eco toilet paper supplied); The White Company towels; sumptuously deep double bed made up with 1000 thread Egyptian cotton bedlinen, covered with woollen throws and cushions for relaxing on in the daytime when you're not out exploring; table and chairs, crockery, cutlery and pots and pans, t-towels; wifi (free); eco-cleaning products; hot and cold running water supplied from a private well. A Welcome Basket with vegetarian or vegan ingredients for your first breakfast will be waiting for you. Please get in touch if you have any special dietary requirements.
Outside is your own private decking with marvellous views, complete with table and chairs and a bench. In the garden there is more seating and a chiminea for barbecuing on or warming yourselves by as you gaze up at the stars! No light pollution means the stars are crystal clear at night. And the air is so clean - the lichen that grows on the trees here only grows where the air is pure. All kinds of wild birds visit, and very occasionally a red squirrel. You might spy a hare as you look at the view. Inquisitive Galloway cattle may inspect you from the fields next door!
Carraig is set in its own 'garden' - a small paddock for guests' exclusive use in the private grounds of Carsebuie Steading. There is a shared courtyard where you can park your car ( free). There is an EV Chargepoint if you have an electric car (small charge) .
The owners live in Carsebuie Cottage opposite the paddock and are there for you if you need them, otherwise will keep discreetly out of your way. However you may hear or see their friendly dog from time to time!
