"Memorable family holidays you'll treasure forever."
Miles of stunning coastline and sandy beaches
Golden sand, quiet beaches, spectacular views... The Colvend Coast also benefits from the Gulf Stream, making this the perfect place for a memorable holiday.
Enjoy miles upon miles of sandy beaches...
The Colvend Coast in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Little wonder then that it is also a popular visitor destination. But unlike the Lake District in neighbouring Cumbria, this part of Scotland, which is one of the most sparsely populated areas of Britain, is relatively undiscovered which means that the area is never overrun, even in the peak season. This makes it a perfect place to unwind and relax and take in the many stunning views and places of interest to visit.
There are miles upon miles of beautiful beaches. Galloway Country Cottages has three properties in and around the tiny hamlet of Sandyhills which gives a clue to the fact that the beaches here are golden sand. And lying on the Gulf Stream, South West Scotland benefits from a mild climate. In fact, in 2013, temperatures here were as high as those in Spain, Portugal and Hawaii!
Watch out for the variety of wildlife to be seen in and around the shore and visit the many picturesque villages along the coast including Kippford, Rockcliffe and Carsethorn. The children will love to look for starfish in the rockpools or collect the pretty seashells to be found.
There are also many places of interest to visit including the birthplace of John Paul Jones, father of the United States Navy. Also close by is Dalbeattie Forest which includes part of the world-renowned 7 Stanes biking trails. Also ideal for fishing, golfing, watersports, museums, galleries, walking, birdwatching, historic attractions, outdoor activities and plenty to do for the children.
