A well appointed lodge which is a credit to the owners with great views of the loch and countryside. The lodge had all a family could ask for including board games, toys, DVDs and music for all the family. The beach is about 10 mins walk from the holiday village but for those wet Scottish days you also have the... More

A great well looked after Log Cabin at Barend by Sandyhills Beach near Dalbeattie. The chalet is well presented both inside and out and is a credit to the owners. There is everything a Family or just a couple could ask for. Comfortable surroundings and nice Beds with fresh bedding and lovely clean Towels.

You can even take your dog to the on site pub. The beach is a two minute walk away. There are also great walks in... More

Returned to Barend again 19th May for 5days, this time with 4 other golfers to play at Colvend Golf Club. Stayed there last June with wife and another couple doing some walking. If anyone enjoys either hobby, plus eating in the excellent bar/restaurant, then this is hard to beat. The log cabins are very well appointed and along with Gary... More

Never fails to provide relaxation, spectacular views and the best sleeps anywhere! Stayed with my family Dec 30 to Jan 3 - our fourth visit. Very impressed with bar area which has been refurbished since our last visit three years ago and is now comfortable, warm and welcoming. Will definitely be returning....my 2 1\2 year old granddaughter insists on it!
