Carraig Shepherd’s Hut



Carraig Shepherd’s Hut is located in a small paddock at the far side of our Galloway Steading in South West Scotland.

The views are wonderful and the tranquillity and peace of the surroundings make a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Here you are close to the Sea, to Lochs, Mountains and Moorland, to Castles and Ruins and Ancient history.


Lulled by the gulf stream, unexpectedly, palm trees grow.  Cows and sheep graze the lush green fields.

The sky seems vast. The quality of light has long inspired artists, both home-grown and from further afield. There is something special about the land here that instills creativity in all its forms. Writers and Musicians listen to the earth and let their words and music flow!

Carraig, as nearby Farmer Davy says, looks like it has always been a part of this landscape.

Come and share it with us!

What We Offer

Sleep in a sumptuous double bed on a deep, 2000 pocket-sprung mattress made up with luxurious, organic, fair-trade bedlinen.


lounge in the daytime on the bed with its pure wool throws and cosy scatter cushions or curl up at night to read in peace and quiet.

You could even watch a film on your tablet! (free wifi provided via TP-Link)

Keep Warm INSIDE

with the small, (but perfectly formed!) woodburning stove.

A log store for Carraig is outside the Hut.


Behind the Barn – Sit at the table and … if it’s cold …..

Toast marshmallows on the Chiminea!

Or … enjoy a barbecue – charcoal provided.


a 3-course meal or simply warm up some soup using the electric mini-oven, complete with grill and  hotplates.

We supply basic herbs and spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to start you off.

There is a full-size fridge but no ice box (we sacrificed it for space).

And there is a toaster too!

Welcome Basket

you may not have had the time to shop for your breakfast before you arrive,

so to start you off we provide home-made bread; butter, milk, home-made jam; tea, organic, fair-trade, shade-grown coffee, sugar; and, if you like, we will also give you eggs from our pet hens – Reeny, Rita and Marge.

Freshen Up

in the Shower Room with its electric shower, washbasin and proper, flushing loo.

Organic, fair-trade hand and bath towels are provided.

Luxury shower gel, body lotion, shampoo, conditioner and soap from Noble Isle will not only scintillate the senses but add to your feeling of wellbeing.  No parabens and vegan friendly.

Loo paper is also sustainably produced.

Boot Scraper and Boot Rack

outside the Hut Door for your muddy Wellies and Walking Boots


 A perfect place to have your morning coffee or evening aperitifs as you admire the view or Stargaze at Night.

Even in Winter it’s wonderful to face the elements, wrapped up warm, a comforting hot chocolate in hand!

Or maybe a nip of whiskey! (Our private well water goes with the local Bladnoch single malt perfectly!)

And a Garden all to yourself!
