From the outside this lovely mid terraced cottage looks tiny, but open the door, step in and be amazed! The view from the sitting room and exterior balcony is addictive whatever the season. Patience may be rewarded with glimpses of sparling, salmon and red squirrel and the occasional dart of a kingfisher. The cottage forms part of what was originally the Newton Stewart Brewery of William Thomas Solomon possibly dating back to the 1700’s and overlooks the lovely River Cree, Brewery Pool and Mill Island. The Cree is a spate river like the other Galloway rivers and fishes best after a good fall of rain. It rises in Loch Moan and meanders through moorland and forest before entering the sea near Newton Stewart. The River Cree with its tributaries, the Minnoch, the Trool, the Penkiln and the Palnure drains the south west flanks of the ’Range of the Awful Hand’, the labyrinthine range of mountains and lochs, bogs,burns and crags, rising at its highest to The Merrick (2764ft above sea level), 12 miles to the north and visible from Newton Stewart.
