Located in an elevated position with stunning sea views, a stone’s throw from the seashore. Post Office, shop and restaurant 2 miles.


This stunningly designed lodge sits in a remarkable location on an estate, curling around the waves of Rascarrel Bay.

One of four lodges, it is tucked into the landscape, the architecture fitting perfectly. The style of the interiors is contemporary, chic, and calming, with luxurious touches that will make your stay very memorable.

Enter into your sociable living space, an open-plan room with large windows and doors that present the whole vista of the bay. The kitchen is a sleek space tucked into the corner with a romantic dining table. The spacious lounge area comes complete with a TV and French doors leading out to the balcony. Head through to your en-suite bedroom, with its sumptuous king-size bed, and its own set of doors leading outside.

The balcony space is the real highlight of this property, a large decked area including outdoor furniture so you can enjoy an al fresco supper in the sea air. A hot tub offers the perfect place to unwind, not just from a day in the hills but from your normal, busy life.

The lodge is located in a stunning position, elevated above the rugged coast alongside Rascarrel Bay. The estate on which the lodge sits is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the breathtaking and varied landscape of Dumfries and Galloway. Take a hike around the estate, embark on an adventurous cycle ride, or simply stroll down to the sea's edge to peer across these mysterious waters.

There are plenty of activities to pursue beyond the estate, too. Whisky tasting, golfing, and sea and loch fishing are just some of the pursuits you can enjoy. For amenities and even a restaurant meal out, head to the quaint village of Auchencairn, 3 miles away.

Head inland towards the woods of the Galloway Forest Park and make a pit-stop for some hearty scran on the way at Castle Douglas. The town is full of attractions, boutiques, historical sites, all in stunning surroundings. The River Dee floats by, with an island in one of its bends upon which stands the imposing 30-metre tower of Castle Threave. This mighty fortress dates back to 1369, when Archibald the Grim cast his shadow, and is now home to peregrine falcons.

This property is personally managed by Nicola.

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.
