Fabulous cottage with complete tranquility
Had an amazing stay at this lovely and cosy cottage. Enjoyed some tranquility away from the hustle bustle with lots of amazing walks in the countryside. A perfect place to stay if you are looking for some peace and quiet. Really recommend staying here

Idyllic cottage, perfect to get away for some peace and quiet
The Shiel is the perfect place to shut off from the world and get some relaxation time with a good book. Located in the Scaur Water Valley, it is only a short drive away from Thornhill and other activities such as Drumlanrig Castle and Gardens. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and has plenty of games and excellent WIFI to keep you entertained if the weather takes a turn. This was our second visit and we will certainly be returning.
