From the Beach House enjoy birdsong ,beaches and coastal walks. A personal favourite walk is to hug the coast from Carrick Bay to Kirkandrews . Rainton Farm ,home of Cream o' Galloway ice cream is only 3 miles away with farm walks ,unique adventure playground and make your own ice cream sessions. Kirkcudbright, the artists town, is a scenic delight with its castle,active fishing harbour and 6 weeks of summer festivities culminating in a Tattoo. Don't miss Broughton House, a National Trust property, home of E.A. Hornel , particularly for its garden. If you enjoy castles go to Threave Castle at Castle Douglas. A short walk and a boat trip takes you to the stronghold of the Black Douglas. Out for a drive then head up to New Galloway via Ringford, sample the delights of Kitty's tea room and return back down the east side of Loch Ken to Castle Douglas again. For the more adventurous, a walk up Screel Hill at Auchencairn is very rewarding, or go mountain biking in the 7 Stanes Bike routes.
