The weather was not kind, rain on all but two days, but you don't come to Scotland to sun bathe in September and October.
The change in the trees over two weeks is especialy beautiful and nowhere more so than the wonderful special trees of Kirkennan.
Ten minutes from the shops in Dalbeattie, don't miss the "foodie" town of Castle Douglas seven miles away.
Plenty to see from water mills to wild life and great waterside walks like Kippford to Rockcliffe.Very little traffic so motoring can be a pleasure again.
Beautiful location with lots of things to do in the local area. Ideal for walkers and dog owners. Beautiful beaches close by and if you just want to take a step back from a busy world this is the place to go to.
As a wheelchair user I found Woodsedge Cottage to be well adapted for my needs, and Jenny (one of the owners)was very helpful in providing a list of accessible places to visit.
We also appreciated fresh produce from the estate, an open fire, the warmth and cosiness of a southfacing cottage in such a beautiful and peaceful setting.
