Open for business… self-catering cottages!


Please keep an eye on this website, which will be changing soon in order to make way for information on our new venture. Swift Cottage and Swallow Cottage are opening for business over the next couple of weeks and we just want to give you a few details here to whet your appetite…

Each cottage sleeps up to four, with a double and a twin bedroom, and both are independently centrally heated and double glazed. They each have a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting room/dining area, a lovely bright bathroom, a second loo and a decked area to the rear where you can watch the red squirrels, enjoy the bird-life or just soak up the view over the Nith Valley.

Prices per cottage, per week are as follows:- Low season – £280; Mid season – £380; High season – £480; Peak – £580. We are open all year round and details about short breaks and Christmas/New Year will appear on the new website, along with a calendar showing availability.

There are a couple of photos on the Gallery to give you a hint of what the cottages will be like. More furniture is arriving tomorrow and we won some pictures at auction yesterday, so we really are nearly ready. More details will be shown on the new site.

Finally – happy Burns Night! We’ll be enjoying haggis for supper and supporting Dumfries’s Big Burns Supper by attending a Big Country concert in the Spiegeltent, set up specially for the town’s annual weekend of celebration. Come and join in next year? There’s plenty of room at McMurdoston!
