We stayed at the Auld Smiddy with our spaniel for a week in mid-October and could not have been better pleased with the cottage. A stunning setting - cows to the right of us, sheep to the left of us and a view from the conservatory out over three miles of rolling open countryside down to the lighthouse and the Irish Sea. The cottage was immaculate, extremely comfortable & snug and had been so thoughtfully kitted out that we wanted for nothing. The village of Drummore is two miles away and has a good village shop, a post office, two pubs & a cafe. There were plenty of places of interest to visit within a short drive and highlights for us were Logan Botanical Gardens and also Port Logan Fish Pond. The owners Diane & John Gilmore were so warm & friendly and it has to be said responded way beyond the call of duty when I had a bad fall on our last evening and fractured an elbow. Their compassion & kindness will long be remembered. We can't thank them enough.
