A lovely, clean cottage in wonderful surroundings. Straiton is a lovely welcoming village, ideally situated for visiting the local area. The cottage itself has all the appliances required for your stay. A beautiful open fire, which we lit just to look at. Would definitely stay here again.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. We rent cottages ourselves and try to equip our cottage with all the things we would use on holiday.

About the neighbourhood
The picturesque village of Straiton is set in beautiful countryside along side the Water of Girvan. There are great walks, many signposted, and miles of cycle tracks in the Galloway Forest Park. Living in the village is like stepping back in time and we have a strong community spirit. Activities in the local Hall such a whist drives, badminton and carpet bowls are usually well supported with visitors made to feel welcome. Our local shop is community-run with some part time paid staff and a team of volunteers, it is surprisingly well- stocked with fresh bread baked on the premises daily.
The Buck coffee shop is very popular with locals and visitors alike and the Black Bull hotel opens in the evenings for delicious meals and refreshments.

Straiton is on the 361 bus route with several busses a day connecting to Maybole and Ayr.
