For the attention of all cyclists-Stone Cottage is ideally situated for those who wish to tacklethe world-class 7 Stanes track.Between now and July it is practically empty. Come and enjoy.

Springtime is definitely one of the best times to visit this beautiful region;quiet roads, beautiful wild flowers, returning birds,lengthening days. Come and enjoy!

Of course, if it is fishing you want,then the River Cree is right on your doorstep. It is one of Scotland`s undiscovered, and therefore uncrowded, salmon and sea-trout rivers and it is right on our doorstep. Then maybe a little golf to finish the day-the local 18-hole course is just around the corner.

 Dumfries and Galloway is now an important centre for stargazing and the skies over Newton Stewart have been putting on a great show recently. Only 5 minutes from the cottage you can be in total darkness with an undisturbed view of the night sky.

 Already some happy Stone Cottagers this year.......
