Carty Cottage is the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. Everything you need for a perfect holiday is there.Definitely the best location if you have a dog..our Lab loved the field at the back of property.Bring your own towels though.This cottage is a credit to the owner and photos on website don't do it justice.

We had a superb holiday and certainly want to go back again. Not only was Carty Cottage extremely comfortable and very well situated for exploring both Galloway Forest and the coast but the owners were very welcoming and helpful.

Cottage fully equipt although you do need to bring your own towels. A great location to explore Dumfries & Galloway. Located in the middle of beautiful countryside. Awoken to three deers in the gatden highlight of the week. A car is a must as some buses available. Stranraer is a great place to visit as is the local lochs.
