About the property

Cottage in Dundrennan, Nr. Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland - Ideal Spot For A Truly Peaceful Getaway-From-It-All Holiday

An ideal spot for a truly peaceful getaway from it all holiday. This is a detached stone-built cottage, formerly a small shooting lodge, in a very remote setting amidst the hills approx 1.5 miles up a hill track from the neighbouring property. The cottage is unique having its own water supply from a gravity fed spring in the hills and the charm of having NO ELECTRICITY, (All facilities are powered by gas with the exception of the lighting). The property is well maintained, simply but comfortably furnished and perfect for those interested in hill walking, bird watching and painting.
