Driving the South West Scotland Coastal 300

- April 30, 2018 -

A friend of mine has the enviable job of conducting weddings in the runaways’ favourite wedding town of Gretna Green, and, as a proud Doonhamer,  she regularly asks the happy couples if they’re planning to explore Dumfries and Galloway following their nuptials. I was surprised to hear that few couples seem to have given much […]

An evening with the freelance ranger

We were lucky enough to enjoy a ranger session with Dark Sky Ranger Elizabeth Tindal at Sandyhills beach on the Colvend Coast.




Happy Clients that have stayed with us

  • Okay, so the best thing about Craigbittern was the space, it was large enough not to be tripping over each other (we were three families, including 6 teenagers). We often go away together, but in other places we have been a bit cramped at some point (parking, kitchen, dining, whatever..). Actually the dinning room is fabulous and we all sat together at the table for dinner which does not happen very often any more. And the games room was a hit. Oh, and I got 4G (on Vodafone) which is a rarity in this part of the country. The wifi’s fine, but it was getting hammered by the kids. We had a very lovely holiday stay in a chilly mid-February and would very happily come back again

  • We stopped here for new year with a large bunch of friends and what a perfect way to see in the new year. The house is amazing and very well equipt, from the decor and furnishings, the hidden den for the kids, cosy throws and a real fire, farmhouse style kitchen and the stunning beach just over the road. There's a lovely coastal walk up to kipford which has stunning views and at the end a pub to enjoy a well earned drink! It's a great holiday home to escape day to day life and I will certainly look forward to spending time here again!

  • I stopped here for new year 2016/2017. The house is furnished incredibly well & looks amazing. There was plenty of room for everyone to celebrate without feeling cramped. The house is just across the road from the beach where you can join the coastal path to Kippford & take in the beautiful local scenery. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for somewhere special to stay.

  • We stayed in the winter and it was a warm, beautiful and we'll equipped base from which to explore - really luxurious!! We will be back
    Thom Groot- Craigbittern
  • I recently spent the weekend at this beautiful house and recommend it highly. The house itself is decorated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of attention to detail. It's very well equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The kids were never bored with the games room, den and toys to keep them entertained. As well as the house being beautiful it is set in beautiful surroundings, right on the beach and with some lovely walks near by. We had a fantastic weekend and hope to return again soon
