  • 5 of 5

Amazing little cottage the we both feel in love with on arrival & want it as a home of our own.

Elaine was amazing on arrival we were greated with a smile & a chat.

The beach is right there on your doorstep & good food & drink at the hotel after our walk.

Lovely cottage felt like a home away from home, will definitely be back again & stay for a few more days.

Was a perfect retreat after mountain biking in the 7 Stanes.

Will definitely recommend to go have a stay.

Car: recommended

Dumfries has links with Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns; Gretna Green is the original quickie marriage one stop solution and Eskdalemuir is site of Samye Ling,the first Buddhist monastery in the west, a still thriving community with an impressive Tibetan temple, with a range of courses on offer.

Caerlaverock’s Wetlands Centre, close by, is open all year round to show visitors the coastal landscapes and nature during every season. The most famous member of the wild life is the wild flocks of Svalbard, Arctic Ocean, Barnacle Geese between the months of October and April.

Caerlaverock Castle, dating from 1270, is situated 5 miles from here, and is one of Scotland's best ruined castles and not to be missed. Also close by, and of historic interest is, the Ruthwell Cross which dates from the 8th century. It's huge at 17 feet and once stood right on the shores of the Solway Firth. Today it's housed in Ruthwell's parish church, within a few miles, from Powfoot. Visit the ancient ruins of Sweetheart Abbey (once a bustling Cistercian order) at New Abbey.

The iconic Caul upon the river Nith below the ancient Devorgilla Bridge is of early origin, in Dumfries town centre, known as White Sands. The Dumfries Forest Park covers 300 acres making it the largest and darkest, star gazing, forest park in Scotland, offering a wide range of outdoor activities for visitors.

The town of Annan sits on the estuary of the River Annan at the eastern end of the Solway Firth and is the principal town in the Annandale and Eskdale area of the Dumfries and Galloway region. Annan's location on the first fordable part of the Solway Firth has always been of great importance. Because of its position, Annan suffered from many attacks during the Wars of Independence and border reiving. In recognition of the towns resistance and loyalty a Charter was granted to Annan by King James V in 1538. The town's Royal Burgh status was reaffirmed in 1612 by King James VI. Each year the Royal Burgh of Annan celebrates The Riding Of The Marches.
