Tha Butchach description

A warm Scottish welcome awaits you at this comfortable holiday cottage on the edge of the bonny village of New Luce. The kitchen/dining room looks out onto the courtyard through its large picture window, whilst the bedrooms offer views of the garden area that’s visited daily by many red squirrels. New Luce is a conservation village, a single street of 18th and 19th-century cottages set in an area of Dumfries and Galloway that’s ideal for a relaxing holiday on the moors of Wigtownshire, which gives New Luce that special charm.

As a wing of the owner’s own home, Tha Butchach (meaning ‘The Witchery’) is a fantastic, single-storey property that boasts the luxury of en-suites in both bedrooms, and it makes for a convenient base from which visitors can explore and visit the many and varied attractions the area has to offer. The first thing you will notice about this small corner of south west Scotland is its striking natural beauty – from the rocky and sandy coastline looking out far across the sea, to the lush green forests and the rolling hills inland. Just a mile from the village is the Southern Upland Way, a coast to coast walk that stretches some 212 miles from Portpatrick in the west to Cockburnspath in the east.

The area is rich in native wildlife, with red deer, ospreys and red kites to name but a few. Visit the many beautiful gardens in the area that are blessed with warm climate thanks to the Gulf Stream, and there are also a number of fascinating museums nearby.

Galloway Forest Park is a huge natural wonderland of forested glens, lochs and towering hills which, due to its small number of buildings and hence very little amount of light pollution, was the very first national park in the UK to be honoured with Dark Sky Park status. The forest park and nearby Dalbeattie Forest also offer a chance for more adventurous holidaymakers to get their blood pumping with its 7 Stanes mountain biking trail centres.

Sure enough, the region provides something to interest all manner of holidaymakers staying at Tha Butchach. Beach 5 miles. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
Tha Butchach can be booked together with Rosehearty (UK5491) to accommodate up to 7 guests.
