Welcome to Cults Cottage, pet friendly self-catering holiday accommodation for 4 - Now with FREE Wi-Fi

Cults Cottage (Cults being an old Scots word for 'wooded area' - although there are no trees now!) is a lovingly restored, two bedroomed, semi-detached country cottage. Set in a lovely rural location in the Machars peninsula of Dumfries and Galloway, south west Scotland; it is a popular pick for those who love a relaxing country environment. Renovations having just been completed at the start of 2012, it provides holiday-makers with fresh, modern and comfortable accommodation.

This delightful self-catering holiday cottage is situated two miles from Whithorn, the Cradle of Christianity in Scotland. Nearby Garlieston offers sandy beaches and opportunities for sailing and fishing. Wigtown, Scotland's Book town is only seven miles to the north. Cults Cottage is an ideal base for walking, cycling, golfing and birdwatching. If, however, you are only seeking a quiet cosy hideaway, Cults is the perfect location in which to relax on holiday.

The cottage enjoys panoramic views of open countryside and the Galloway Hills. It is within easy reach of the market town of Newton Stewart, and the ferry port of Cairnryan.

National Trust Self Catering Holiday Homes

The medieval Pend House and Georgian Precinct House offer luxury self catering vacation accommodation in Whithorn, South West Scotland, for four and three people, respectively. The Pend is the restored medieval gatehouse of Whithorn Priory, while its neighbouring property was built in the late 1700's and is restored to the Georgian period. The two properties are marketed by the National Trust for Scotland for holiday accommodation, and are available for vacations and short breaks all year round.

The Pend, a Grade A Listed Building, was restored betweeen 1997 and 2000 by the owners, with assistance and advice from Historic Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland, and authentic period materials were used in the restoration, along with oak finishes and antique furnishings.

The Precinct House was extensively renovated between 2001 and 2004, and the interiors and furnishings reflect the Georgian period in Scotland.

The Pend House and Precinct House have both received an award of 4 STARS in the Self Catering Category of the VisitScotland Quality Assurance Scheme.

 

Bookings are made via the National Trust for Scotland Holidays Department, 28 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh.

Provides pharmacy, household goods, cosmetics and giftware. Full range of pharmacy services.

Whithorn Pharmacy are proud to announce the launch of free ‘Blood Pressure Monitoring’ and ‘Cholesterol Testing’ Services. More services, such as Asthma Check are to follow, all of which come on the back of the recently completed refurbishment program that saw the pharmacy totally revitalised. The new image sees the shop don the town colours of burgundy & white, giving it a much brighter, friendlier look and feel. We were very lucky to have the re-launch conducted for us by Alex Fergusson MSP, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament.

The additional of a consultation room earlier in the year allowed us to provide a private discussion area for patients to speak in confidence about any healthcare issue. This was then updated to match the rest of the shop at the refit. We are delighted with the improvements and with the dedication of our team of staff who worked tirelessly throughout making the transition as smooth as possible.

It’s our aim to continue to invest in the premises and the town, bringing improved services, innovation, technology and making frontline pharmacy health services as accessible as they can be.
