Cottage Review:  

We wanted some peace and quiet and this place delivers. Complete and utter silence except for whatever tune nature plays! The location, for us and our high energy Staffie, is perfect, just stunning. Plenty of sheep around but long stretches of countryside we could let him run free - great idea until he found a dead pine marten (?) to eat! The cottage is the picture perfect country cottage and we found everything (apart from only 1 loo roll) to be spot on. Can?t comment on the tv system as we never turned it on, why would you somewhere like this! The wood burner easily heats the whole cottage and the u/floor heating is a nice bonus. All the furniture and bed are comfy and we had no issues at all with cleanliness, towels clean and fluffy, bed well made, all good. We?re already planning our next trip because it is such a beautiful, peaceful place. Yes the walking routes aren?t great and the road, a good 30 minutes long, is one of the worst I?ve driven on but it?s all part of the charm, you are forced to drive slowly which prepares you for the tranquility of the cottage. Loved it, loved it.

Had an amazing stay at this lovely and cosy cottage. Enjoyed some tranquility away from the hustle bustle with lots of amazing walks in the countryside. A perfect place to stay if you are looking for some peace and quiet. Really recommend staying here

Cottage Review:  

The Shiel is the perfect place to shut off from the world and get some relaxation time with a good book. Located in the Scaur Water Valley, it is only a short drive away from Thornhill and other activities such as Drumlanrig Castle and Gardens.

The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has plenty of games and excellent WIFI to keep you entertained if the weather takes a turn. This was our second visit and we will certainly be returning.
