The house is situated adjacent to the quay side overlooking Garlieston Harbour. At high tide you can see boats at their mooring, bobbing about in the harbour. The actual house is a relatively new build, surrounded by older converted cottages. That doesn’t detract from the...More

Great wee terraced house in quiet Garlieston. Well appointed & plenty bathroom facilities(3 to the 2 bedrooms!). No WiFi - but this was not necessarily a bad thing - we certainly talked & laughed a lot more than if we'd been glued to our phones/ipads!...More

About the neighborhood
is situated right on the harbourside in the sleepy fishing village of Garlieston in the Galloway Machars. With sea views from most windows and coastal walks starting right from the front door, this is the ideal away-from-it all break. Garlieston village has small shop and a pub (1/4 mile from property), plus tennis courts and children's play area. Other good eating places in nearby Wigtown and Isle of Whithorn. The surrounding area enjoys unrivalled unspoilt countryside, beautiful coastline with near-deserted beaches, rich in wildlife and historic interest. Wigtown (National Booktown) is 10 miles away, with the Galloway Hills and Forest Park just 18 miles drive. Within easy reach of Scotland's Garden Route, and the Mull of Galloway (southernmost point in Scotland). Sea and river fishing, and golfing nearby.
Getting around
While there is a bus service linking Garlieston to Wigtown and Newton Stewart, this runs quite infrequently, so your own transport is advisable to enjoy the area to the full.
