Holiday Rental House
Romantic hideaway for two situated opposite the slipway of Garlieston Harbour adjoining Harbourside Cottage which together form a superb recent conversion of a Grade B listed historic port building. Combining stunning views across the bay to the distant Galloway Hills with a country view at the rear, peace and quiet are guaranteed for couples wishing to get away from it all. This hidden corner of Wigtownshire, known as The Machars, also offers a multitude of activities from cycling, sailing, fishing and golf to more gentle pursuits with walks, historic sites, gardens and the book town of Wigtown all within easy reach. Cliff and Betty look forward to welcoming you....Romantic hideaway for two situated opposite the slipway of Garlieston Harbour adjoining Harbourside Cottage which together form a superb recent conversion of a Grade B listed historic port building.
