The red squirrel on the photo, lifts the lid of the box to get out a peanut and sits on the platform to eat it.

Had a lovely stay here in this well equipped and spotlessly clean cottage. Wonderful wildlife and walks. The bluebells too were a real picture. Great cycling from the doorstep and lovely to watch the red squirrels from the windows. Thanks for the cake and flowers.
A wonderful welcome, the best cottage we have ever been in and in a really excellent location. We enjoyed our Christmas immensely. Thank you very much.
Our third visit here and we love it a bit more each time. A little bit of "heaven here on earth" is how we would sum up our holiday.
Thank you for your warm welcome. The cottage and surroundings are superb. The birds in the garden are too numerous to mention. A deer and a fox visited the field opposite. I shared my breakfast with a red squirrel on Thursday. After several nights at the otter pool we saw an otter. Sign posts say 'Haste ye back' and we certainly will.
Well, here we are again and the same lovely welcome. Seen buzzards, red squirrels, deer and the numerous bird entertainment through cottage windows. Bargally Glen was beautiful with all the colours of the trees shining in the sun. Bruntis Loch looked lovely this evening, will try to store in memory until our next visit.
This is our fourth visit and still not seen enough. Climbed Craig Ronald & Fell of Fleet this week. Still Clints of Dromore to do so must be back. Cottage is so warm and relaxing we don't want to go. Thanks Jennie & Vince for everything.
Another lovely holiday and what wonderful weather. Thank you once again for the home cooked goodies and for making us so welcome. Will see you again before too long.
Wonderful warm and homely cottage in a lovely part of Scotland. Easy access to the west coast, great forest walks with magnificent scenery. Incredible wildlife in the garden. We absolutely loved it and so did the dogs.
Our first visit to Dumfries & Galloway and we have loved every minute of it. The cottage is a real find, so homely and in a beautiful setting. Really enjoyed the forest and loch walks, and of course the wildlife in and around the garden. Never got round to reading the books I brought.
