From this idyllic setting, explore one of the most southerly points in Scotland. Renowned for its sunny climate, the area offers an abundance of activities for walkers, anglers, ornithologists and golfers. Visit the interesting archaeological dig at Whithorn, or browse the many bookshops at Wigtown. Shops 3 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. If you’re seeking peace, tranquillity, solitude, isolation, magnificent coastal views, then this is the cottage for you. Situated at the end of a 2 mile very narrow road / land rover track, the cottage sits in a wonderfully rugged coastline and the sea is just a 5 minutes walk across gorse covered fields and the Isle of Man sits just 20 miles away. The cottage is much larger than the outside appearance would suggest. A large lounge with an enormous fireplace and wood burning stove; very large galley style kitchen; large dining room with window seat, shower room, 2 double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom. This is a good family sized cottage where you do not ever feel on top of each other. The only downside is the lack of mobile phone reception and the fact that no payphone landline is available. Nearest shop is about 6 miles. If this doesn’t bother you then just enjoy the total experience. April 2012.
  2. Very lovely location with cliff walks right on the door step. The Clansman in Port William serves excellent meals but you must book. Cottage really cosy with comfy beds and furniture. Would highly recommend it. Oct 2011.
  3. Millwalk cottage was a clean, comfortable cottage in an extremely peaceful location just five minutes walk to the beautiful coastline. Lovely walks both from the cottage and in the surrounding countryside. Superb for bird watching and wildlife. May 2011.
  4. Beautiful isolated property with 360 degree views. Warm and comfortable. Nov 2010.
  5. Peace and tranquility, and enclosed garden for your dogs. Oct 2010.
  6. We liked the remoteness of the property. Size was also good & the fact it had central heating & a good power shower. Sept 2010.
  7. The property was clean, warm and comfortable. It was well equipped and had everything we needed for a stress free holiday. Sept 2010.
  8. Superb location and fully equipped. Sept 2009.
  9. Lovely remote location but glad we had a suitable vehicle. Aug 2009.
  10. Very beautiful and peaceful surroundings with walks down to the sea. Aug 2009.
  11. Stunning location and a lovely adult cottage... great not to have bunk beds and loads of children related stuff in the cottage. Look forward to returning. March 2009.
  12. Cosy and clean, nicely furnished, great gardens, multiple options for sitting outside, securely fenced for the dog. However you must like cattle! Sept 2009.
  13. The Bottle of wine that was put out for our arrival was a nice gesture. The Cottage and garden where perfect and just what we wanted, especially the decking and widow seat dinning room, even the summer house was well equipped. The surrounding area was very nice and the local people very pleasant and easy to get on with. All in all a pleasant and very relaxing break. We will go back again. Feb 2009.
  14. A fantastic place to relax. The views to the sea were breath-taking and the location was superb for long walks. Not sure how easy it would be to let the dogs out if there was actual live stock in the open fields... March 2008.
  15. The grounds are excellent for owners with dogs as it is very secure. Oct 2008.
  16. An excellent holiday! Sea views, cliff top walks, hills, rabbits, pheasants – all on your doorstep. A clean, well-appointed house with pleasing views on all sides. Recommended for a relaxing holiday. April 2007.
  17. The cottage and everything in and around it is wonderful, we have had a marvellous holiday and have thoroughly enjoyed touring around the beautiful places. June 2007.
  18. Lovely quiet location by the sea. Excellent views, walks and golf nearby. Enjoyed conversations every other day with staff in grocer, butcher, deli & visitor centre in Whithorn. We’ll definitely go back. Oct 2007.
  19. Fantastic wildlife – Roe deer, adders, grey seals, peregrine, gannet and dolphins or porpoises (too far to tell). What a haven. Aug 2006.
