Kenmuir Holiday Cottage is located near Sandhead and Ardwell Bay, Dumfries and Galloway, and overlooks the sea to Ireland. It is located on a remote and quiet peninsula, called the Rhins of Galloway. The cottage is 8 miles south of Stranraer, 8 miles south east of Portpatrick, and just 3 miles from the beautiful sands of Sandhead which stretch for 7 miles. The Rhins of Galloway is 11 miles wide and about 30 miles long, and has an abundance of places to explore and wildlife to view.
From Glasgow it takes approximately 2½ hours to drive to the cottage, and from Edinburgh 3½ hours. Travelling to the cottage from the capital can involve a scenic drive along the A702 and through Moniave and St John's Town of Dalry. Why not stop off at Drumlanrig Castle for a picnic or visit the iron age roadhouse at Clatteringshaws Loch in the Galloway Forest Park, just before Newton Stewart? A further 25 miles from Newton Stewart takes you to Sandhead, and after 3 miles you will arrive at the cottage.
The quickest way from Glasgow is via the M77 and A77 Stranraer road, past Kilmarnock and Ayr, and through Givan, which provides a wonderful picturesque drive along the coast.
If you are travelling from England, turn off the A74(M) at Gretna Green onto the A75, and then pass by Annan, Dumfries, Gatehouse of Fleet and Newton Stewart. This is also a lovely drive and there are many places of interest to explore on your way to the cottage.
