45 Academy Street

castle douglas self catering
Castle Douglas Our comfortable house in Castle Douglas has been in the family for nearly five decades. In the "olden days" it used to be two flats, one up, one down. It has since been tastefully converted into one house, ideal for family breaks.
We love visiting it ourselves, and we keep making wee improvements here and there - our regulars enjoy spotting the changes
Galloway is a delight - so much variety in such a small compass!
45 Academy Street is really conveniently situated just along from the shops. Eat in or out, there's plenty of choice.
The house is great for a couple and has ample space for a family. We also find that small groups of walkers, golfers, cyclists and fishermen appreciate it.
It is a comfortable and convenient base in a delightful area.
