Park Cottage is a former rectory within Galloway House Estate. In 1740 the Earl of Galloway chose this exceptionally sheltered bay to build his mansion and develop a Capability Brown inspired garden. You can still make out the avenue where the rector rode his pony to the mansion house chapel. The stable is now our log store.  Today our visitors can enjoy 23 private acres of this listed landscape with the sea and venerable trees to the east and open fields and the old laundry just visible to the south. Enjoy the summerhouse and watch the fishing boats sailing by or perhaps catch a glimpse of the abundant wildlife in the garden.  Head to the safe, sandy beach at Rigg Bay. A level, easy walk along the beautiful coastal path. Then onwards to Cruggleton Castle ruin – a very rewarding walk with magnificent cliff-top views. A detour on your homeward journey will bring you through delightful Galloway House Gardens and back to enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the UK.
