Kirklauchline Cottage is a traditional Galloway Crofters Cottage which has been sympathetically modernised over the years. This charming cottage is located in a stunning rural setting on the Rhins of Galloway peninsula, which remains an unspoiled paradise for locals and visitors on the lookout for peace and tranquillity and is also home to the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most Southerly Point.

Kirklauchline Cottage has the most spectacular views across the sea to Ireland, the Mountains of Mourne and the South Rhins coastline, the Isle of Man can be seen from the bottom of the lane. The popular tourist destination of Portpatrick, a pretty coastal fishing village, is located only 3½ miles from the property and offers a good choice of restaurants, bars, general store, gift shops and post office. There are many coastal walks to and from Portpatrick including the start of the coast to coast walk ‘The Southern Upland Way’. The area also boasts Scotland’s most exotic garden, Logan Botanic, only a short drive away from Kirklauchline Cottage. There are four other gardens locally, formal and informal, where the plants and shrubs thrive due to the milder climate of the Gulf Stream.

This detached 150 year old former Galloway crofter’s cottage offers all the comforts for modern day family living and is beautifully appointed sitting in a superb elevated position, with breathtaking sea views from the private garden and decking and from the front windows of this charming south facing cottage. The property has been tastefully decorated throughout, with the cosy sitting room having two Dowling multi-fuel stoves to augment the efficient oil central heating. This beautiful lifestyle property offers the successful purchaser the opportunity to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty with an abundance of wildlife right on the doorstep. Kirklauchline Cottage, albeit rural, is within easy reach of major road networks.

In recent years Kirklauchline Cottage has been utilised as successful holiday accommodation with occupancy rates averaging 70% per year (Visit Scotland figures for 2018 in Dumfries and Galloway are 46% occupancy for self-catering properties). Many guests return year after year. Should any potential purchaser be interested in pursuing this line of business, the owners are willing to supply figures and occupancy rates to seriously interested parties, along with the opportunity to purchase the website domain, social media accounts and honour any bookings. https://portpatrickholidaycottage.co.uk/
