Pittullie Cottage, Barcloy Mill


Cottage Details


Pittullie holiday cottage is located on the coast of Galloway, looking south over the Solway Firth, 5 miles from Dalbeattie. The surrounding area is widely considered to be one of the most picturesque in Scotland and is now designated a 'National Scenic Area'.

The self-catering holiday cottage forms part of Barcloy Mill, near Castle Point, and has a view of Rockcliffe's Bay, just a quarter of a mile away It was originally a water mill, later a farm and built from locally quarried red sandstone in the 18th century. Pittullie is a conversion of one of the barns to provide a very high standard of Self Catering holiday accommodation amidst a peaceful tranquil setting. With a secluded garden on the private side and the mill courtyard on the other, the cottage has stunning views over estuary of the River Urr and is an excellent base to explore the lesser known jewel in Scotland's crown.

View through sitting room Window

We furnished and equipped Pittullie holiday cottage to make our own holidays as relaxing and easy as possible for ourselves, so it should have everything you need. It is furnished in a clean, uncluttered modern style with comfort as the main factor. There are three bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, and bed linen is provided throughout. All the bedrooms have the view to the sea. There are two bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs.

The south westerly aspect ensures that the sunshine comes in all day, making the whole house bright, sunny and warm. If our micro-climate should fail and you watch a spectacular south-westerly gale from the same windows, our very efficient oil central heating will keep the temperature cosy.

There is a telephone for incoming calls only.
