I stayed at this cottage the first week of August, with family. the house is huge and has a beautiful living room and kitchen. it does seem to be in the middle of nowhere but the views and walks are worth it, the cottage is very secluded, no neighbours so you can make as much noise as you like. very large front and back garden, with a cow field right in front of the gardens which the children loved. we also brought two dogs who was in their element, lots of fields nearby. the house has lots of extras, DVD player, ironing board, children's games, initial supplies i.e. tea, coffee etc. if I had any negatives it would be the walk in shower has a very poor draining system and the shower overflowed every time without fail. it could be slightly cleaner i.e. light fittings etc. and the gardens could do with a little work. overall a beautiful cottage and we really enjoyed our stay. Galloway forest is a brilliant walk definitely recommended.
