OTHER THINGS TO DO
Golf: There is a pretty 9 hole golf course in Wigtown, a short walk from your cottage. St. Medans, by Monreith on the coast (nice beach) and Wigtownshire County and Newton Stewart are nearby. In all, there over 30 delightful courses in Dumfries and Galloway with very reasonable green fees!
Beaches include Rigg Bay which is reached via Galloway House Gardens, close to the harbour village of Garlieston. Dating from 1740 the gardens are a haven for horticulturists and nature lovers, especially in the spring. There is a peaceful walk along the coast to Cruggleton Castle and the cliffs. Kilsture Forest on the road to Garlieston, has many forest trails alive with wild flowers, especially bluebells in spring.
