The cottage was the perfect place for us with everything we needed. We took our motorbike and toured out everyday, our host allowed us park the bike in their garage. They are very kind.

The cabin is well-equipped and in a brilliant location just 4 or 5 miles from Moffat. Great for walking if the weather is good. It is small so you need to be organized about where to put things, take meals etc, but has a nice outdoor area to sit when fine. An enjoyable stay.
