How to get to here....
From A75 at the Newton Stewart roundabout take the exit for Wigtown A714. After 5 miles turn right onto B7005 for Whithorn. At Bladnoch go straight over the bridge onto A714. Continue until you have passed through Braehead and Kirkinner then branch off to the left onto B7004. At the end of this road (4 miles) turn right to stay on B7004. Turn left onto B7004. After 1 mile turn left for Isle of Whithorn B7063. Palmallet Cottage is 1.5 miles on the right.
Palmallet Cottage is surrounded by some of Scotland’s most beautiful countryside and coastlines just waiting to be explored. A short drive from the cottage you will find some beautiful beaches perfect for the dogs to run around or to sit back and relax on a sunny day.
The Cottage is situated next to Palmallet Loch which is a habitat to lots of wildlife. There are hundreds of species of ducks and birds which live around the loch at different times of the year. Ever year young cygnets hatch and it is a delight to watch them as they grow. If you are lucky you may also catch a glimpse of a heron or one of the many birds of prey in the local area. At dusk a family of deer often stroll across the fields and you may also see badgers or foxes out hunting.
Across from the cottage is Cruggleton Church where you can explore the grounds within the walled enclosure and if you are lucky you may be able to attend the Ecumenical service held in the summer. This picturesque area is perfect for photographers and artists alike.
There is a coastal walk which will lead you North towards Garlieston or South towards Isle of Whithorn. This is a popular walk and many people come to enjoy the views from Cruggleton Castle which is only a short distance from the cottage. You will also find plenty of shorter circular walks in the surrounding area through forests and along beaches at Galloway House Estate. Transport can be arranged to take you to the start of a walk.
