Waterside Lodges

Adjacent to the Southern Uplands Way and close to the 7 Stanes Mountain Bike Centres at Glentrool and Kirroughtree in Dumfries and Galloway we offer self-catering accommodation throughout the year for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts.

Waterside Lodges for Holidays

Waterside Lodges offer self-catering holidays for couples that want to get away from it all and yet can still go out and enjoy top class food.

We are situated a short distance from Glentrool where good walks can be found and Mountain biking runs enjoyed.

For the less energetic there are plenty of breathtaking sights such as the Mull of Galloway, many Botanic gardens and Golf courses besides Historic Castles and grounds such as Threave Castle at Castle Douglas.

For the Birdwatchers there is the famous Red Kite Trail where one can watch these magnificent birds feeding.

Or of course, try fishing in the famous Bladnoch River that runs near the Waterside Lodges where Pike and Perch are found and if you are cunning enough a Brown Trout can be caught.

Being in Scotland it is worth going to Bladnoch village and try out the Malt Whiskey at the distillery. While not as famous as many of its cousins it does have a taste, which can surprise.

However there are so many things to do in Dumfries and Galloway. Tas and Nick are on hand to help you choose to do things to suit your temperament.

The Red Kite Trail

The Red Kite Trail

This magnificently graceful bird of prey is unmistakable with its reddish-brown body, angled wings and deeply forked tail. It was saved from national extinction by one of the world's longest running protection programmes, and has now been successfully re-introduced to England and Scotland. It is an Amber List species because of its historical decline.

Threave Castle

On an island in the River Dee stands Threave Castle, a massive 14th century tower built by Archibald the Grim, Lord of Galloway. Later the stronghold of the Black Douglases, it has at its base an artillery fortification built before 1455 when James II besieged the castle.
