The secluded beach at Port O’ Warren is approximately 200 yards from Victory Cottage (at the bottom of the lane).
Plus the beach area at Sandyhills is just a mile and a half away and more access to the Solway Coast is at the end of your road at Portling.
The cottage is an excellent starting point for walks along the coast including along the coastal path westwards to the attractive village of Rockcliffe and the local sailing centre of Kippford.
Centrally located for access to the 7 Stanes mountain biking with cycling centres at Dalbeattie, Mabie, Ae and Kirroughtee. Some ten miles from National Cycle Route 7 and a great location to experience cycling in Dumfries and Galloway and the South of Scotland.
Wildlife and Bird Watching
The RSPB Mersehead Nature Reserve is two to three miles eastwards down the coast road.
There are plenty of other opportunities to see some local wildlife.
The local sailing centre of Kippford is just four miles away.
