Relax and get away from it all to this luxurious contemporary romantic retreat. Unwind in the fantastic private hot tub and enjoy the magnificent sea and beautiful rocky bay views.

Situated right by the shores of Rascarrel Bay, this idyllic lodge is located in a quiet and peaceful part of Scotland, perfect for a couples’ retreat. Here you can spend hours wandering along the rugged coastline of the Solway Firth, and exploring the rich culture and endless wildlife that the area has to offer.

This luxury lodge has been beautifully designed, from the warm wooden cladding to the perfectly appointed interior. Furnished in a classic seaside cabin style, as well as being fully equipped to suit the needs of modern living, this five-star accommodation is the perfect place to relax and appreciate the incredible surroundings. Floor to ceiling windows let the light stream in, making this home fresh and bright, while providing panoramic views of the private bay.

In traditional cabin style, the lounge, kitchen and diner follow an open-plan layout to create a welcoming and spacious area. Decorated with gentle fabrics, comfortable sofas and a TV, you can spend evenings in watching a film. Fully equipped for all of your cooking needs, the contemporary bespoke kitchen is a great space for unleashing your inner chef. The breakfast bar is ideal for casual meals while the dining table accompanied by lovely seaside scenery through the French doors is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner for two. All set on one level, the bedroom is situated through the hallway. This lovingly decorated king-size bedroom is a cosy space and ensures a peaceful sleep after a day in the fresh sea air. Contemporary and stylish, the bathroom boasts a shower and a freestanding bath.

Step outside onto the fully enclosed patio with tranquil views across the bay. Watch the sunrise from the covered seating on the decked area or admire the sunset while dining alfresco to the sound of the waves. Take a dip in the private hot tub under the stars for the perfect end to your day. You’ll find ample off-road parking on the private drive to the side of the lodge.

Start your adventure from your doorstep and head down to Rascarrel Bay just a few metres from the lodge. This beautiful pebble beach with tidal pools is perfect for refreshing morning walks or sunset strolls. Situated next to the Solway Firth, there are 200 miles of splendid coastline to traverse.

The local village of Dundrennan is 6 miles away and is most notable for its ruins of Dundrennan Abbey, a 12th-century monastery. Here you'll also find a shop for your convenience. Just 10 miles away from Rascarrel lies Castle Douglas, a lovely town well-known for its excellent eateries, local markets and fresh produce. It is also home to a broad selection of independent shops. Carlingwark Loch, dotted with small islands, is situated beside Castle Douglas and provides a great opportunity for romantic picnics, or even boating. At the far end of the loch sits the National Trust property Threave Garden and Estate which boasts picturesque grounds that are delightful to walk through all year round.

Further afield from Rascarrel, situated about 27 miles away, lies Galloway Forest Park. This incredible location offers serene lochs and miles of forested glens, as well as some of the highest hills in southern Scotland. However, the most impressive part is that this Forest Park is the first in the UK to be honoured with a Dark Sky Park status, meaning that the view of the stars is truly spectacular and well worth a visit.

An impressive lodge which offers comfort and luxury in a very secluded location. An undisturbed panoramic ocean view sought by many. Quality furnishings and equipment, decorated tastefully, with the added touch of flowers and a bottle of wine and chocolates to welcome you. If its peace and quiet that you want, then this is the place. It is situatedRead more a short distance from the owners farm, so be prepared to acclimatise yourself to the smell of manure in the air at times when out and about. 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.
