Wonderfully located on the quayside, in the harbour village of the Isle of Whithorn just yards from the yacht moorings, these attractive holiday apartments form part of the renovation of the original fishermen’s warehouses and enjoy glorious views over the harbour and sea. Situated in the heart of Galloway amidst some of the finest scenery in southern Scotland, they are ideally located to explore the breathtaking scenery and areas of outstanding natural beauty, wilderness and romance. From the Galloway Hills with their many hidden lochs, burns and waterfalls to the beautiful Solway coastline with sandy beaches, rocky coves and picturesque villages to explore. Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest local reserve in the UK. It has internationally recognised significant numbers of pink-footed geese, greylag geese, many species of duck and wading birds visiting in autumn and winter. Visit the Interpretation Centre where you can view by video camera the Galloway ospreys during their nesting season (April to August), or the local wetlands for the rest of the year.
Take a look at the distillery at Bladnoch established in 1814 which offers a large shop and guided tours, or meander around Wigtown appreciating the high quality gift shops, small gallery, excellent plant nursery, numerous book shops and many cafés. The southern Scotland region boasts an exceptional number of absorbing activities, whatever you’re after - from spending a quiet afternoon with a rod and reel beside one of the area’s many excellent rivers, or pushing yourself to the limit along a challenging 7 Stanes cycle track. Horse riding, golf, sailing, diving and numerous walks are available in the area and with its famously mild climate and the balmy influence of the Gulf Stream, Galloway is home to some of the most beautiful and exotic gardens. Shops, pubs and restaurants 200 yards.

Customer Reviews of Solway Haven, Isle of Whithorn, nr. Newton Stewart, sleeps 4
1st comment: The lack of photo’s of the accommodation left us in doubt as to whether we should book. You need more photo’s as you are definitely underselling the accommodation. Very modern, spacious, great bathroom and plenty of pressure in the power shower. 4 windows offering superb views. (you need a new can opener tho its worn out). We arrived as hurricane Katia turned up and being on the top floor I was very impressed with the double glazing and insulation, as we hardly noticed its presence until we went outside. Sept 2011.
