Long Cottage sits off Shore Road on the outskirts of Auchencairn close to the highly acclaimed Balcary Bay Country House Hotel, sheltered from Auchencairn Bay, ideally suited as a holiday bolt-hole in a much sought after Solway coastal location.  The cottage is a short walk down to a secluded beach with views across to uninhabited Heston Island.

Auchencairn itself is a delightful Galloway village close to Auchencairn Bay, an inlet of the Solway Firth, located approximately 10 miles east of Kirkcudbright and 7 miles west of Dalbeattie. The village itself has a range of local facilities including primary school, garage, Post Office, church, an award winning community garden and bowling green and sits very close to the Balcary Bay Country House Hotel. There is a renowned coastal cliff walk nearby which includes a circular walk to a lochan and views across to the Lake District.

Nearby Castle Douglas is a thriving Galloway market town lying approximately 18 miles southwest of Dumfries and enjoying an enviable range of shops and other facilities in a town now promoted and known as the “Food Town”.

The southwest of Scotland is a genuinely rural area with its gentle rolling landscape, mild climate and dramatic coastline. The area has a good range of sport and outdoor activities with core path walking routes and cycle routes on the door step with opportunities to take shooting in the area, fishing on the nearby rivers and of course golf.  The Solway is also a popular yachting destination enjoying excellent facilities at Kirkcudbright and nearby Kippford.


The property is located on the corner and beyond the quiet, single track lane to the side, there is a raised area of exclusive garden ground laid mainly to grass with a gravelled patio area for outside dining with wooden steps and wooden fence surround.
