    One of a pair of beautifully situated rural holiday cottages, Ettrick Cottage is the perfect place for peace and relaxation, with comfortable, bright accommodation. This semi-detached cottage enjoys views towards the vast Forest of Ae and the Nithsdale Valley, home to red squirrels, deer and spectacular birds of prey. There are numerous walks nearby, especially up to lovely Loch Ettrick, 1½ miles along quiet roads, where fishing is also available (licence required). Stargazing in this designated Dark Skies area couldn’t be easier, or perhaps take a trip to the Dark Skies Observatory near Dalmellington, 43 miles. Dumfries, 15 miles, has a fascinating Art Trail, or visit Drumlanrig Castle and Gardens near Thornhill, 8 miles, where there are also great cycle trails. Mountain biking is available at nearby Ae, part of the 7 Stanes network. Try a walk at Cairnhead, 22 miles, to see the Striding Arches, an artist led project where red sandstone arches stride around the surrounding hills. There is golf at Thornhill and Dumfries, and plenty of good local shops and restaurants to try. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 5½ miles.
    Ettrick Cottage can be booked with Gilchristland Cottage (18806) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    The main problem with the booking , apart from not great wifi was the dog situation. We were not aware at the booking stage that you had to leave somebody in the house at all times with the dog. When you are on a family holiday with young children, (aged 5) going out with a dog all the time is not feasible. Nor is having somebody stay in the house with the dog. As you can't do lots of family things. It should be better documented, as if we were aware of this situation then we would not have booked the cottage.

    When we booked I informed the owners we wouldn't arrive until late on the first day, this was not a problem and they even left the lights on so we could find the cottage in the dark! The long dark windy roads from Dumfries were scary at times and we couldn't use the sat nav for the last part of the trip! The directions given were very helpful but we felt that they should state the actual distance from Dumfries (A76) to the turning for Loch Ettrick which would have helped in the dark! The views from the cottage are fabulous and waking up to them every morning was a bonus! The road to the cottage from the A76 can be treacherous if a vehicle comes the other way and we had a few near misses during our stay! We would recommend driving very slowly which isn't always the case for the locals!! Lee was very helpful when the shower stopped working and had it fixed asap.
