About the neighbourhood
The Machars Peninsula features some unsploit and stunning sandy beaches as well as rugged coastline. A 15-minute drive from Kilfillan Cottage is Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town, with its osprey visitor centre in the imposing gothic style County Buildings. Close to Wigtown is Scotland's most southerly whisky distillery, Bladnoch, which houses a visitor centre and shop.

Garlieston is known as the home of the Mulberry Harbour - a massive floating harbour used to land equipment and supplies onto the beaches in Normandy as part of the D-Day landings in World War II. Sections of the floating har...
