The Coorie, operated by the local community trust for the benefit of the community, provides modern bright, spacious accommodation for up to 5 guests who enjoy getting away from it all and enjoy the great outdoors.
Located within the Galloway Forest Park (Britain's first nominated Dark Sky Park) in the small, tranquil village of Glentrool, surrounded by nature, with direct access to surrounding hills, ancient woodland, forest trails and Loch Trool. The Coorie, operated by the local community trust for the benefit of the community, provides modern bright, spacious accommodation for up to 5 guests who enjoy getting away from it all and enjoy the great outdoors. On a clear night the star-gazing, and feeling of remoteness, is truly breath-taking. The Coorie offers excellent opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing and exploring our night skies along with all that this unspoilt area of Scotland has to offer. The Gaelic word Coorie means to nestle or snuggle but has more recently taken on a different meaning, evolving from its origin to a lifestyle trend, the Scottish equivalent of the Danish Hygge, of appreciating Scotland’s beauty and what it has to offer.
The Galloway Forest Park forms part of the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere, and is a firm favourite of hill walkers and mountain bikers with internationally recognised biking trails amidst some of the most dramatic scenery in the south of Scotland. There is a wealth of wildlife, such as red and roe deer in the forest and hills, while wild goats thrive on the rocky outcrops. Opportunities abound to explore the waymarked trails, cycle routes and picnic areas by bike or on foot amidst the highest hills of South Scotland. Glentrool Visitor Centre is the gateway to the Galloway hills, where you can pick up maps and information on the hill ranges. The Merrick, South Scotland's highest peak at nearly 2,800ft can be climbed from Bruce's Stone, which can be found overlooking Loch Trool. This huge granite boulder commemorates Robert the Bruce’s first victory over the English in 1307 during the Scottish Wars of Independence.
Newton Stewart is within a 10 minute drive, and offers all the facilities you would expect of a small rural town including a selection of Independent shops, Supermarkets, Pubs and Eateries, a Cinema, an 18 hole parkland Golf Course and The Merrick Centre which offers leisure facilities including a 25 metre swimming pool with spa & sauna, Fitness Suite and 3 court Sports Hall.
