Roundhouse at Loch Doon

Roundhouse at Loch Doon



Loch Doon is the largest inland loch in Southern Scotland with spectacular scenery. It is approximately 5 miles in length and 1 mile at it’s widest point. It nestles in the Galloway hills with stunning views of the Rhinns Of Kells.

Here you will find The Roundhouse Cafe and Osprey Lounge.



An absolute “must stop” not just for a welcome cuppa and snack but for magnificent views and of course the

wonderful Ospreys who breed nearby. They can be viewed from the Osprey Lounge and the owner will be only to happy to tell you anything he can about these wonderful birds.

These holiday breaks will bring you back to nature.  We want people to consider the impact that humans have on this earth, but also the impact of tourism too. Our huts have minimal impact on the land which we want to protect and preserve. We encourage guests to think about what they don`t need and can do without, then take those thoughts back home and apply them to everyday life.

There is no electricity, lighting, hairdryers, charging points or any fancy hot tubs. Just well equipped, traditional and cosy shepherds huts, each with their own campfire set in beautiful ancient woodland. We have a `leave no trace` policy and encourage guests to preserve water and take away any rubbish.

Our accommodation is perfect for walking the Southern uplands, visiting South West Scotland, cycling the Seven Stanes, star gazing in the Dark Sky Park and nature watching holidays. Calm your mind, soothe your soul and reconnect yourself with nature!
