Dumfries & Galloway
Cutlar's Lodge is situated at Orroland, a traditional Scottish lowland farm overlooking the Solway Firth in the heart of rural Galloway in the south west of Scotland. The farm is on a hillside that leads down to the sea and the resulting panoramic sea views are nothing short of breathtaking. The unspoilt land at Orroland is dedicated to the rearing of quality grass-fed cattle and sheep and the land is dotted with attractive coppices and woods. Orroland is set apart from the hustle and bustle of busy roads and street lights, yet the nearby towns of Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Dalbeattie are just 15-20 minutes away.
The holiday homes at Orroland are family owned and run. The owners are near at hand for when you want them, but never under your feet.
With more than 200 miles of dramatic coastline, majestic wild mountains and moorlands, Galloway has unspoilt countryside and a natural environment perfect for taking it easy or enjoying the great outdoors. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, the southwest is the mildest corner of Scotland. Wildlife abounds here. Walkers and cyclists will revel in the wealth of trails and paths through forestry, hills, coast and farmland. Golfers can choose from more than 30 golf courses, ranging from championship links through to family fun.
As you explore Galloway you'll find clues to some of the most colourful events in Scotland's turbulent history, including bloody battles, blackmail, religious strife and witchcraft. Discover the area's connections with Robert Burns, Robert the Bruce, Mary Queen of Scots and the origins of Christianity in Scotland. Dumfries and Galloway is the gateway to Scotland, just over the Border from England at Gretna Green; Glasgow and Edinburgh are only two hours' drive away.
