About Us

A Cottage on the Waterfront

Moir Cottage is situated on the harbour waterfront in the charming, unspoilt little fishing village of Portpatrick on the Rhins of Galloway, South-West Scotland.

The cottage is available for rent the year round. 

Portpatrick is a part of the world where you can forget the stresses and strains of everyday life and relax into a time that you thought was long past. Stroll along the harbour front to one of the local pubs or restaurants and enjoy a drink or meal as you watch the boats come and go, or take a picnic to one of the many deserted beaches up and down the coast. If you’re feeling a bit more energetic, there are spectacular 18-hole and 9-hole golf courses above the village, and lots of cliff and woodland walks. The Southern Upland Way, a walking trail that crosses the country from West to East, starts beside Portpatrick harbour.

The cottage is perfect for family groups and people with elderly family members. There is one bedrrom and two bathrooms on the ground floor for easy access.

The village is a perfect spot for children with a beach, a good playpark, and an excellent 18-hole putting green for all ages on the harbour.

The surrounding area is perfect for golfers, walkers, cyclists, lovers of nature, and gardeners. Logan Gardens (part of the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh) is close by, as are Glenwhan Gardens and Castle Kennedy Gardens.

Moir Cottage has been in our family since 1960. We spent all our holidays there with our granny as children. Our own children have all grown up spending their summer holidays in Portpatrick. We love the place, and hope that you will as well.

Check-in & Check-out

 Bookings run from Saturday to Saturday. During normal times, the cottage is available from 2pm on the Saturday of arrival and should be vacated by 10am on the Saturday of departure. This allows us time to have it checked and cleaned before the next visitors arrive. HOWEVER, during these COVID times we ask guests to arrive no earlier than 5pm on your arrival day and depart by 9am on your departure day.  This gives our housekeepers the extra time they need to carry out a deep clean.

Cancellation Policy

Bookings must be paid for in full at least one month prior to the booking date. Cancellations made at least two months prior to booking date are refunded in full.

During this COVID period we want everyone to be safe, so we are happy to accept cancellations and provide full refunds right up to the day your booking is due to start.

House Rules

Non-smoking: the cottage is non-smoking.
Pets: we are sure your dog is the best behaved in the world, but we now don’t allow pets.
