Cottage 2, Little Float
Phone: 01776 830242
I’m afraid we’re a bit tucked away in the back of beyond. A map and directions are provided below, and if you have satnav, the postcode is DG9 9LD.
Directions coming from Stranraer.
Take the Stoneykirk road. Pass through Stoneykirk village, and a couple of hundred yard after you leave the speed limit, take the first right turn. Then take the second right turning, about 1 ½ miles up the road next to a large wood. Follow that road for 1 ½ miles then take the first left, just before Auchentibbert farm. Keep on that road until it comes to a T junction with a little grassy island. Turn left. About ½ mile along that road, the road turns left by a pair of white cottages on the right (and a sign for Little Float Farm). We are in the second of those cottages, with a gravel drive and a black tin shed in the garden.
Directions coming from Newton Stewart.
Take the A716 past Sandhead village, heading for Drummore. About ½ miles past Sandhead look for a right turn, signposted to Kirkmadrine Stones. Take that turn, and about ¼ mile up the road take the first right, again signposted to ‘Kirkmadrine Stones’. After about 2 miles you come to a T junction. Turn right. After about ¼ mile the road turns sharp right, up a steep hill. As you come down the other side of that hill you will see a pair of white cottages on the left. We are in the second of those cottages, with a gravel drive and a black tin shed in the garden.
