Stunning location and great place to explore Galloway. All the facilities you could want and very comfortable beds! Nice touch where you are welcomed with cake and 'the essentials' of milk and eggs. Would be very happy to stay here again!

The Chauffeur's Apartment at Lochinch Castle is situated approximately 3 miles east of Stranraer on the A75. The road takes you up a small hill and on the left hand side is the entrance where there are large iron gates. On the opposite side is a church in some trees. (If you reach Castle Kennedy Village you have gone too far). Turn into the gates and follow the road for 2 miles until you reach Lochinch Castle. To the side of Lochinch Castle you will see the Stable Courtyard and an archway. Drive through the archway and across the stable courtyard to the exit on the right hand side. Turn left and follow the building until you see a sign and entrance to the Chauffeur's Apartment.
