*About the Cottage* ............. Culsharg Cottage is a bungalow which is simply but colourfully decorated with comfortable beds. It has wall-mounted electric radiators throughout, and a lovely log burning stove in the living room. The kitchen is modern and has the usual appliances of cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave oven, kettle and toaster, plus a dishwasher. The hot water is an "on-demand" system. The bathroom has a walk in shower (no bath). There is plenty of free on-site parking. Dogs are very welcome and the garden is fully enclosed for your furry friends safety. The rear bedroom has a three single beds. The front bedroom has one double bed. The cottage is thus suitable for two couples enjoying a break away together, or a family of two parents and up to three kids. Fresh bed linen is provided for each guest along with a single bath towel for each guest and hand towels for the kitchen and bathroom. In the living room there are a couple of small sofas and a table/chairs for meals. There is a TV, Roku streaming device and DVD player but please note there is no TV licence (or reception!) for watching live TV. There is free Wi-Fi.
*About us* .................. Hello! We're Dave & Beth Currie and we are lucky enough to live next door to Culsharg Cottage. While we will obviously respect your privacy during your stay, we are also on hand to help with any issues and offer first-hand advice on how to enjoy the terrific area we live in. Dave works as a photographer, Beth designs and makes jewellery, and we have a small gallery at our home, Gallery Sia Tri. We also perform as a singing duo around the local area. In our spare time we love to get outside and enjoy our beautiful area, and are both keen walkers. Dave has done most of the local bike trails and good road routes, and can offer firsthand advice on routes etc. We both get out walking regularly and can offer advice on good local walks to suit most abilities and distances. We are always happy to chat about the best ways to enjoy our amazing countryside and help you make the most of your stay with us!
*About the area* ................ Glentrool is very much about the outdoors, with plenty of biking and walking routes nearby. We are right in the heart of the stunning Galloway Forest with trees, streams, lochs and mountains right on the doorstep. It's a beautiful peaceful location and as a designated Dark Skies Park you can expect to see some awesome starry skies, and if you're really lucky, maybe even Aurora Borealis. We are part of the 7Stanes mountain bike trails organisation and the local trailhead is just a mile from the village. It has a family friendly green trail, and a faster blue route. The Scottish Open Access code means that there are lots of other, non-designated routes that you can enjoy on a MTB. We are also perfectly placed for road biking, being about 10 miles south of the "Ayrshire Alps" where there are some cracking climbs and descents for roadies. We have great walking routes in the area, for a wide range of abilities. A climb up The Merrick, Galloway's highest peak, a Corbett at 843m, or a circumnavigation of Loch Trool is highly recommended. The nearest shop is in Newton Stewart (10 miles away) but we do have a great (gastro-)pub less than a mile away.
