Kirkdale Estate is a stunning coastal estate with views stretching far out across the Solway Firth in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Home to the Hannay Family for over 500 years, the centrepiece of which is a Robert Adam Georgian Mansion, Kirkdale House, said to have one of the least altered Adam exteriors in Scotland. The Estate has private coastline which is designated a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) with rare lichens and ancient native woodland.
We now have two detached holiday cottages to let with spectacular, uninterrupted sea views over the magnificent Wigtown Bay in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. Kirkdale Bank and Kirkdale Port are set apart from each other along a private track on the Estate.
Both of our holiday cottages sleep six, are refurbished to a high standard, have exceptional sea views and welcome pets. They are family friendly - each property has a selection of toys, games, books, cards, TV, DVD and CD/radio.
The situation of each property means you can completely escape from the hustle and bustle yet if you wish, seek out a huge variety of activities on your doorstep, including mountaing biking, walking, fishing, golf, tennis, horse-riding and sailing. The area is well-known for its beautiful walks, coastline and forest parks. Galloway Forest Park has been recently unveiled as the first Dark Sky Park in the UK winning Gold Tier status from the International Dark Sky Association confirming it as one of the best places for stargazing in the world.
We are only twenty minutes from Castle Douglas Food Town, Kirkcudbright, famous for its artists and Wigtown, Scotland's Book Town.
