Carraig is a luxuriously appointed Shepherd’s Hut set in a small paddock beside our farmsteading. Egyptian cotton bedlinen, deep 2000 pocket-sprung mattress, pure wool throws and lots of comfy cushions ensure you have a good night’s sleep in the absolute peace and quiet of this unpolluted, hidden countryside gem. On the edge of Galloway Forest Park, no light pollution means on cloudless nights a myriad stars, planets, and even the Milky Way can be seen. The views from your bed day or night are breathtaking. 

A tiny log-burning stove heats the hut, and there’s a mini-oven with a grill and 2 hotplates for rustling up all your mealtime needs. Store your provisions in the under-counter larder fridge. Hot and cold running water, as well as logs, firelighters and kindling are provided. Free Wi-fi. A shower and loo supplied with toiletries and toilet rolls and fluffy White Company towels complete the facilities on offer inside the Hut.

Externally, decking surrounds Carraig, with a charming bistro set for morning coffee or evening aperitifs. From here you have fantastic long-ranging views over farmland to the Galloway Hills in the distance. The paddock is for your exclusive use. There is free parking, an electric vehicle charge-point, and although we live on site, we will only come and see you to check you in and out and if you need us.

Carraig sleeps 2 in one double bed. Because of farm animals in close proximity, sorry, no dogs or pets. No children.

Prices from £100 per night. Min 2 nights. Maximum 2 persons.
