With a shingle beach just yards away and coastal walks starting right from your front door, 'Tide's Reach' makes the ideal base to explore the unspoilt Galloway Machars, with its rugged coastline, interspersed with sheltered bays, and gently rolling countryside, scattered with bronze age and prehistoric remains. An hour's drive takes you on into the Galloway Hills and Forest Park, or the lovely Rhins of Galloway.

Garlieston village has two small shops and a pub, within easy walking distance of the cottage, with further shops and places to eat in nearby Wigtown and Isle of Whithorn.

(Formerly known as 'Water's Edge')


Location on google maps

Garlieston village has a small shop and a pub serving good home-style meals, with further shops and eateries in nearby Wigtown (National Booktown) and Whithorn (home of St Ninian's Priory).

There is a shingle beach less than 200 yards from the front door, leading onto coastal walks to nearby Rigg Bay and beyond,  allowing fantastic views of Wigtown Bay (Local Nature Reserve) and to the Cumbrian hills beyond. 

The surrounding area (known as the Galloway Machars) is very quiet and peaceful, with unspoilt rolling countryside, some spectacular small bays and quaint villages, and a wealth of historic features, including St Ninian's Priory, Glenluce Abbey and Torhouse Stone Circle. 

The quiet roads are ideal for cycling, plus two of the 7 Stanes mountain biking routes are within 45 minutes drive. The Galloway Hills and Forest Park (Dark Sky Park) is about 40 minutes drive. Scotland's Garden Route makes an ideal day trip easy reach, as does the Mull of Galloway (Scotland's most southerly point) and picturesque Portpatrick.
