Burns Holiday Cottage is near the Doon Valley. There you can find the Loch and the Castle, and may be an Osprey.


On the way you pass through the village of Dalmellington where a sign advertises 'Dark Skies', 'A Village in the Stars' indicating that on clear nights astronomy could be an interesting option.
(Sorry we offer no guarantee of clear sky !)
Check out
The Scottish Dark Sky Observatory.

Delmellington was the home of the Blacksmith Poet Robert Hetrick. They have a Curling Rink at Craigengillan. There is a stone circle erected as a memorial to seven mining villages of the Doon Valley. If you are lucky you might get to hear one of Scotland's oldest Brass Bands, 153 years old in 2017.
