Customer Reviews of The Byre, Kirkcudbright - sleeps 4
1st comment: The property is in a fabulous location, only one mile from Kirkcudbright with excellent walks in all directions. Our views were fantastic over a field with highland cattle. We had a great visit to Laggan Activity centre, recommended by the owner of the cottage, Mr Donald Duncan, a real gent. Steve, our trainer, made sure we were all happy as we took our segways up the side of the fell to fantastic views - brilliant. We had a brilliant holiday. Aug 2011.
2nd comment: Lovely area , cottage situated within easy reach of lovely places and scenery. Selkirk Arms in Kirkcudbright serves good food, but a bit of a shortage of good pubs and eating places. June 2011.
