With beautiful views over the river estuary, Gilnockie is a newly built, luxury log cabin situated on the outskirts of the very popular sailing village of Kippford.

The lodge was very nice and comfortable. Wood burning stove was much appreciated as weather was cold and wet. The position was very nice and looking out window during breakfast we saw three red squirrels. It isn't far from the beach and there are a number of things to do within a short drive.
