Where you’ll be

Whithorn, United Kingdom

The area is well-known for its lovely sandy beaches at low tide (i.e. Monreith ; Rigg Bay) and amazing walks (coastal walk just across from Morrach ; St Ninian's Walk ; Kilsture Forest.)
Amongst the best local attractions are, to name but a few: Wigtown National Booktown & Farmers'Market, Creetown Gem Rock Museum, Laggan Outdoor Centre with one of the longest Zip Wires in Europe, the Cocoa Bean Company and Cream of Galloway (Ice-Creams) both near "arty" Kirkcudbright, renowned for its museums and art galleries.
Logan Botanic Garden is well worth the detour for its sub-tropical ferns alone & there is a great variety of excellent gardens open to the public from Easter onwards due to our mild, Gulf-Stream induced micro-climate.
Here you will be able to enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the U.K, use one of the 7 Stanes cycle tracks with routes for all abilities in Kirroughtree Forest, or simply RELAX & sample fresh, delicious seafood from any of the quaint little restaurants hidden in the many remote fishing villages dotted along the coastline. Pure Bliss!

During your stay

This is what one of our August 2019 guests called VERITY, wrote after staying at Morrach . Unfortunately VERITY missed Airbnb deadline for sending Feedback, but still ... her comments might help other guests? "Please excuse this very late Thank You for a most wonderful stay at your delightful cottage in the Isle of Whithorn... we absolutely fell in love with the place and would love to stay again one day. Your instructions and guidance for where to visit were so helpful and enabled us to make the most of our week at yours. What a fabulous cottage! You could not have done any more to make us feel so welcome. We realise we have run out of time to write a review for Airbnb but if there is any other way we could recommend your place we would do like to do so! It’s a hidden treasure made even more lovely by your warm welcome and efficient communications.
