Great location

Kelpies Cottage is in Glentrool Village, the only village inside Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park. 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.

Glentrool is very much about the outdoors, with plenty of mountain 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.

Lovely little house in a great location. Great value for the price. There's a handy binder with information on the area that's been prepared by the hosts. Very clean, easy to find, plenty of parking. Just a great place to stay all around!

Dave and Beth's cottage is in a perfect place for exploring the Galloway park, and the cottage itself is thoughtfully laid out, with plenty of hot water (for after chilly hikes).
