Cairnsmore Stable Cottage
Arriving at the sandstone viaduct of the private Cairnsmore Estate offers an immediate ‘get away from it all' feeling. A clear burn runs alongside the winding avenue that leads to Stable Cottage and ahead the hills and forests emerge as you approach the Courtyard archway to your destination.Stables

Stable Cottage is a 200-year-old listed building that was originally part of the stable block for the private Cairnsmore Estate, once the shooting estate of the Dukes of Bedford. As soon as you drive through the gates, along the avenue bordered by rhododendron and broad-leaf trees, the surroundings evoke a by-gone time. The cottage’s fabulous and peaceful location creates an ideal base for relaxing and exploring this quiet corner of Scotland. There is wonderful walking in the surrounding area (highlighted in the Newton Stewart Walkfest) and the footpath to the summit of Cairnsmore of Fleet (2,300 feet) is a short walk from the cottage. The enclosed garden is south facing and a wonderful suntrap where red squirrels and greater spotted woodpeckers are frequent visitors. The area offers varied interests, both for the outdoor & wildlife enthusiasts and those who enjoy exploring the surrounding market towns and coastal villages.

The cottage was refurbished at the beginning of 2010 with several measures to improve guest’s comfort, the most important being the Geothermal under floor central heating system. Other improvements include a new bathroom (luxury double ended bath with overhead shower), a wood-burning stove in the living room and flagstone flooring in the main living areas, maintaining a cosy cottage atmosphere..
