Knockkennoch.jpg

Situated on the sea in the small hamlet of Kirkandrews in south west Scotland the cottages are the ideal place to relax and unwind with views looking out over the Solway coast. With beaches on your doorstep as well as opportunities for hill walking, sea fishing, golfing, cycling and water-sports, there’s plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Or perhaps visiting historic castles, renowned gardens and ancient woodland will appeal to you? Kirkandrews Kirk, sitting opposite the cottage, is a unique little kirk (or church) completed in 1906, with parapet and castellated tower resembling a miniature castle.

Set in a charming coastal location, the property is only a short drive from the harbour town of Kirkcudbright, known as ’Scotland’s Artists Town’ and was particularly popular with the Colourists, many of whom lived in the town in the early 1900s. It is a very active and friendly community; visitors to the town can enjoy the variety and number of activities and events held in the area all year round. Shops and restaurants 8 miles, pub 3 miles.

There’s still no sign of Orroland Lodge until the road sweeps round to the left and the Lodge emerges from the sheltering trees in all its glory.

You have arrived at a holiday house that is large and impressive in appearance, offering accommodation that is very easy to live in. Listen for the ethereal sound of the sea in harmony with the birdsong; sounds that are totally unobtrusive and good for the soul.
