“peaceful location, perfect to spend a relaxed time with all modern comfort”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

There is not much to say about Abbotsway Cottage because it was perfect for us and we could not find anything to be improved.
Very warm welcome.
Spacious kitchen and living room with fresh flowers and log fire.
Very quiet location with pheasants and cows looking through your windows.
Stunning rocky beaches close by.
Perfect for a relaxed stay with all modern comfort.
Small fenced court to let the dogs out. Perfect for dog owners and for families with kids.
WiFi is excellent but no mobile phone access available.
We enjoyed our stay very much and do highly recommend this place!

Owners and people of the local pub at Auchencairn are also giving a warm and friendly welcome to guests and dogs. The cleanness there is highly improveable. We enjoyed one evening there. Food there is OK but not worth to be mentioned. Still we´d recommend going there because of the friendlyness of the local people.

The best food experience we have ever made in UK was at Balcary Country House Hotel which is just a 10 minutes drive from Orroland. They are offering a five star kitchen on highest level. This place is worth to be visited if you like places with excellent food served with creativity in a relaxed but elegant atmosphere. Dress code is “smart casual” (without Jeans) and men are mostly wearing ties. Most of the guests there are residents and over 50. The bar offers a huge selection of Scottish single malts. The staff is very friendly just the wine glasses (for the red) could have been bigger and of better quality. Menue changes every day. Nice views to Balcary bay and a stunning sunset. Booking highly reccommendet.

Circutbright is a very nice and clean town, with nice little shops, not to far away and worth to be visited.

We´d also recommend visiting the ruins of Dundrennan Abbey and the local beaches.
