Glen Auchie is a lovely,cosy cottage situated with great views towards the Isle Of Man,the Mull of Galloway and lighthouse.We saw lots of wildlife from the conservatory and the dark skys are amazing to stargaze! It is equipped with your every need - we enjoyed playing snap and draughts on our lazy day and on going out days put our tea in the slow cooker.Beds were so comfortable with feather quilts and electric blankets we didn't wake up 'till 9. Diane is a perfect host,very friendly and with much knowledge and advice on the area.We were sad to leave but will return soon.We were a family with dogs and it was perfect for us :-)

My husband myself spent a long weekend at the Auld Smiddy Cottage, the cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. We were very fortunate with the weather and the view from the conservatory was was wonderful. There was only one problem our stay wasn't long enough but we hope to return again sometime soon.

Glen Auchie Cottage is well worth a visit and good value for the rent. this year was our forth
holiday at this this cottage and we hope to be back in 2014. For people with pets there is an
enclosed garden so your dog may be let out to roam safely. Also there is plenty of car parking
space within the garden area. A good overhaul location to get to many of the attractions nearby.
eg the lighthouse & Logan gardens.

We booked a weekend here in between two weeks in caravan accommodation and found it the height of luxury and comfort. We had a warm and friendly welcome, the room was large and very clean and all sorts of extras were added for our comfort. Large bathroom with super shower, again with all sorts of extras. We appreciated reading the history of the local area and guides to everything around.
But the stunning view across to the lighthouse and the Isle of Man beyond was the best for us. We are not as active as we used to be and to sit in that bay window in those comfy armchairs with a cup of tea and that view was just wonderful. (The nights were even better as there was no light pollution.)
Super breakfasts too. Thank you so much for a great time!
