Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Dumfries and Galloway


Wigtown (Scotland’s Book Town) 8 miles; Newton Stewart 14 miles; Whithorn 5 miles.

Garlieston is a small, quiet coastal village on the Scottish Solway. It is on the east side of the Machars Peninsula overlooking Wigtown Bay. The village still boasts a working harbour, which is home to inshore, creel fishing boats. There is a public slipway for leisure sailors and anglers. Garlieston was chosen for the testing and development of the WWII Mulberry harbours used during the D-Day Landings. Galloway House Gardens, laid out in the late 18th century, are a short distance from village and the quiet beach at Rigg Bay is a short walk from gardens. There is a an excellent coastal walk to Cruggleton Castle (3mi), which can be continued to the Isle of Whithorn. Garlieston is handily placed for trips to Wigtown, Scotland’s National Book Town and Whithorn, the cradle of Christianity in Scotland.
