Away from it all ..... But very windy!
Lovely cottage with all mod cons although water pressure is a bit low due to no mains water. Being so high up the cottage is subject to strong winds which makes sitting out difficult sometimes. Great isolated location with good views out to see. Situated in farmland so cattle and sheep roaming free. Dogs on lead at all times so little bit restrictive for him. Still had a good break and would highly recommend taking points into consideration.

Escape the hustle bustle of the city and chill on the hill.
We've stopped at this cottage a couple of times now and when you arrive you feel like you're entering a totally remote part of Scotland, but your only a few miles from Stranraer. The ferry service to Ireland is literally on your doorstep at the end of the track. The facilities in the cottage are excellent and it's so well kept and cleaned to the highest standard. If you enjoy walking then there are numerous walks on the doorstep also and if you fancy a game of golf don't forget Turnberry is just up the coast. As for myself I enjoy the fishing in the area and for expert advice on where to fish I recommend you pop and see the proprietor of the Sports shop Eric, in Stranraer, who will spend time with you and tell you where is fishing well.

Secluded Hill Top Retreat
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Little Laight. The location is superb with stunning views over Loch Ryan. The large enclosed garden would be ideal for children, with the added benefit of sheep and cattle on the adjoining land to look at. Many a happy hour was spent walking locally with our border collie, with an abundance of places to walk with only the sound of bird song and animals. The cottage is well equipped, with genuinely all you would expect, to make your stay comfortable. Access to the property via a private road/ track up the hillside became a bit tedious towards the end of our week due to the roughness of the ride, as 60% of the way is on stones, be prepared it takes ten minutes from the A75 to the cottage, but don't let that deter you as the cottage and location are well worth the bumpy journey to get there.

We have just returned from a lovely week at Little Laight. The cottage is just perfect in every way from the beautiful furnishings to the absolutely outstanding views. We just loved our weeks break so much and have arrived home feeling very chilled and relaxed. The cottage has everything you could possibly need with everything thought of. It is furnished to a very high standard and the views are just outstanding. It was just perfect for us and our two little dogs and we will definitely be returning, we are so pleased to have found this accommodation. The area of Cairn Ryan is beautiful as is surrounding areas of Stranraer and a lovely little harbour village Port Patrick. We really will miss Little Laight !
