Rose Cottage

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 7
Carsphairn, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland
Rose Cottage is a very snug, homely cottage on the outskirts of the village of Carsphairn. It is situated between Loch Ken and Loch Doon, both 20 minutes drive away, within the vast forest park.

This is a very beautiful, tranquil part of Scotland, and is ideally situated to cater for all activities within country life. There are stunning views in this area which you can enjoy within easy reach from the cottage. If you are feeling more active you can enjoy the walking, cycling, fishing, golf, sight seeing and water sport opportunities all available locally.
If you prefer a day out at the beach this is only 30 minutes drive from Carsphairn.

The village shop, post office and heritage centre are all nearby.
