Did you know the highest village in Scotland isn't in the Highlands? Wanlockhead sits at an impressive 1,531 feet (467 metres) above sea level and is an hour south of Glasgow. The tiny community boasts massive views (and a decent local pub) with excellent footpaths and mountain bike trails. Dialknowe Holiday Cottage is a charming whitewashed holiday home sleeping six people in two bedrooms. It's available all year round so is perfect for couples or families who want the majesty of the mountains coupled with a bit of history, some great local food, and the ability to explore the wider area of Dumfries and Galloway easily.
Formerly the station masters house, this spacious luxurious holiday home is located in the rural Scottish town of Sanquhar within Dumfries and Galloway. There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy locally, pubs and fine dining restaurants for meals out, superb walking with the Ayrshire Coastal Path easily accessible and places to visit by train!
