  • Explore the stunning South West coast of Scotland
Property code: RASC3

Single-storey attractive accommodation with 1 king-size bedroom and well-equipped open-plan living area. 9 luxury and attractive bespoke detached lodges set privately around a large secluded bay, each with an enclosed balcony with a private hot tub and seating. Located in an elevated position with stunning sea views, a stone’s throw from the seashore. Post Office, shop 2 miles.

 

This stunning lodge sits on a private estate that curls its way around the ruggedly beautiful Rascarrel Bay on the south-west coast of Scotland. It provides you with a romantic retreat that you’ll remember for a lifetime, with luxurious moments and views that will inspire endless hours of daydreaming.

 

The lodge is one of nine, set in an elevated position overlooking the sea. Thoughtfully and lovingly designed, the rooms are stylish, sleek, and cosy all at the same time. It has been built to enjoy the astonishing sea views from the surrounding coastal landscape, and features every amenity (and some extras you won’t expect) to make your stay a memorable one.

 

Head inside to discover the main sociable heart of the home, an open-plan living space, combining kitchen, dining area, and lounge. The kitchen is chic and smartly designed, with all the equipment you could need to craft romantic meals for the two of you. You can then take your supper to the lovely dining table and eat with a backdrop of sweeping sea vistas from the giant windows. The lounge is a calming space with TV and doors leading out to the balcony. When you’re ready, head through into your bedroom, a delightful space with its own French doors leading outside too, so you can sneak out for a late-night dip in the hot tub.

 

The exterior of the property is the highlight - a decked balcony, spacious with dining furniture, and a hot tub, where you can soak under the stars after a busy day of exploring.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The lodge enjoys a terrific location overlooking Rascarrel Bay, and there are endless ways to make the most of the surrounding beauty from right outside your front door. Head down to the shore and wander along the curling, winding, craggy coastline, which joins the Solway Firth. Follow a trail through the private estate and relax on the beach in solitude or take a more adventurous route and go cycling or hiking around the rockier parts of the landscape.

When you're in the mood for a meal out, head to the local village of Auchencairn (3 miles), where you can pick up groceries and absorb the remote atmosphere surrounded by the Dumfries and Galloway woods and hills.

Or, if you fancy more diverse town life, Castle Douglas is a scenic 11-mile drive north. It's a pretty town with a rich history, sitting beside Carlingwark Loch. Here you can discover art, culture, local eateries and shops, or gather up a little local history with a visit to Threave Castle, a stunning and imposing fortress which sits on a grassy island in the middle of the River Dee - it was built in 1369, and was the home of Archibald the Grim.

The lodge at Rascarrel Bay was a secluded, luxurious base from which to explore the lovely countryside of Dumfries and Galloway. Our dog Suki was treated as such a special guest, she enjoyed her doggie treats and even had her own special towel. The welcome gifts of wine, chocolates and flowers were a special touch and we appreciated the water and mRead moreilk left in the fridge. Lying in the hot tub in the evening, with a glass of fizz and looking up at the stars was a fabulous end to every day. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
