Low Cairndoon, Whithorn, Newton Stewart, DG8 8NF 

Situated in the historic Galloway peninsula area of Whithorn where Scottish Kings made pilgrimage to the holy shrines of St. Ninian and the first Christian settlement in all Scotland, the smallholding is set in rolling grassland with views north to the Galloway mountains and west to Luce Bay. Gavin Maxwell, author of Ring of Bright Water, was born close by and spent his boyhood inspired by the wildlife, woodland and the nearby sea. 

Cottage: Entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, living room, family bathroom, bedroom with en-suite and second double bedroom. Upstairs there is a third double bedroom and a large attic store room/playroom. The attic has two large velux windows which open to the famous dark skies of Galloway and offer spectacular clear displays of stars.

Outside: Extensive courtyard, garden with lawn, flower beds, an orchard, soft fruit and vegetable gardens. An extensive outbuilding is currently utilised as a utility room, office, workshop/garage and storage area all heated and insulated, apart from the garage.  In addition there is a large former byre and barn, currently without a roof, which offers great potential for additional living space, subject to planning permission.

Situation: Low Cairndoon enjoys a private rural location, situated 3 miles from Whithorn and 20 miles from Newton Stewart. The cottage has a private access track just off the A747. There is a primary school in Whithorn along with a variety of retailers, cafés, pubs, medical centre, a vet and other facilities.  There is a secondary school in Newton Stewart, again with a variety of independent retailers, cafés, pubs, hotels, restaurants as well as a golf course. This is a tremendous location rich in history with excellent walking, cycling and country pursuits available including fishing, golf, sailing and bird watching.

Directions: From the centre of Port William heading South turn right at the roundabout along the A747, continue for 2.5 miles following the road through Monreith continue for another 2.5 miles and the property is located down a private access track on the right.

The Accommodation : The front door opens onto the welcoming hall. The living room, kitchen and one bedroom can be accessed from the hallway and there are stairs leading to the first floor. The living room benefits from a beautiful traditional open fireplace. The spacious kitchen and dining area features fitted base and wall units, electric cooker and induction hob, dishwasher, Belfast sink and a fitted cupboard.

Off the dining area the second double bedroom is accessed and a family bathroom which has a bath with shower, sink with fitted units, WC and heated towel rail. The second bedroom has an en-suite with WC, sink, heated towel rail and a power shower. Upstairs the third double bedroom has fitted wardrobes and there is a door leading to a large attic space used as a storeroom and playroom.

Outside there is a versatile range of outbuildings, the former byre and barn does not require planning permission to restore the roof with the use of the building for stables and/or storage.  However if to be converted for residential use it does require planning permission. The large office/store/garage has had the roof checked and any necessary repairs made.  This building provides great scope for future development.

The Land: The agricultural land extending to 3.5 hectares and is registered with the Scottish Rural Payments Agency. The permanent pasture is in reasonable heart, is stock proof and benefits from a natural water supply – in addition there is a newly planted woodland, gardens and orchard all surrounding the cottage and buildings.
