A beautifully preserved farm cottage forms the centrepiece among outbuildings, a byre, steading and calf shed. Faldarroch is also now part of the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome Schemes and has a drying room for wet clothes and storage for bikes/outdoor boots and clothing.
Sleeping 4/5 guests, accommodation comprises: 1 double bedroom; 1 twin (family room) with box beds and single bed; Open-plan farm kitchen with sitting area, range and wood-burning stove; Bathroom with roll-top bath and shower over.
This property benefits from eco-friendly insulation and heating, such as wood-pellet boiler and solar electricity.
Two miles away the fishing village of Port William wraps round the coast of Luce Bay, looking across to the Mull of Galloway. It’s thought that a Christian settlement was founded in the area not long after St Ninian came to Scotland, however in the 17th and 18th centuries it became better known as a hotbed of smuggling. Safe beaches, glorious sunsets, and rare wildlife make this part of The Machars coast a blissful holiday haven.
Two miles from Port William on the B7052.
