Region: From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
Town: Known as the Isle of Whithorn, this village is actually not an island, but a small village on the Scottish coast in Dumfries and Galloway. Amenities in the village include two pubs/hotels, a Post Office/general store, and a harbour. There is so much history in this area, from Iron Age forts to 11th century churches, and standing stones to castles built by Robert The Bruce. The 'book town' of Scotland, Wigtown, is a few miles away from the village, and the rest of lovely Dumfries and Galloway is on the doorstep.
Very impressed with the property. A small problem with the t v was quickly solved by the lovely young lady who lived in the village. More than adequately equipped with every thing necessary. Handy for the pub on the harbour which served good beer and food. Great for walks with a dog and a good base for exploring further afield.

The cottage was very nice, everything we needed for the week, warm and comfortable, being so close to the sea was a bonus we hadn't expected and we were in a good place to travel round sight seeing, and then take a stroll before it got dark with the sea on one side, we could walk from the cottage and leave the car safe and sound.
lovely quiet break

we have been going to Isle of Whitorn for over 30 yrs.It is lovely and peaceful, not good for families though as nothing much to do on the isle. The bungalow we stayed in was very well equiped, beds comfortable and nice and clean. The bungalow could do with a wooden garden seat outside the french window as there was a lovely view .Also new dining chairs ,as they were a bit on the wobbly side.

Arrival to departure went very well. We loved the location and found all comforts at hand. Shopping was a decent trip however the town of Newton Stewart was very lovely.
