Low Tralorg Cottage is situated in a peaceful setting in the lovely Girvan Valley in the South Ayrshire hills. With views across the valley to the surrounding hills, Low Tralorg is in a tranquil position between the hamlet of Old Dailly and the picturesque village of Barr, some 5 miles distant from the seaside town of Girvan which offers a wide range of local amenities and about 26 miles from the county town of Ayr, which has an excellent range of shops, leisure and sports facilities, cinema and art galleries. There is primary schooling in Dailly (5 miles) and secondary schooling at Girvan, whilst the nearest private school is in Ayr. The railway station in Girvan provides regular services to Glasgow and Stranraer. Glasgow is within easy reach via the A77 and M77 and Glasgow Prestwick Airport (29 miles) offers regular international flights.

To the north is Turnberry (10 miles), with world class golfing facilities and a luxury hotel and spa. The popular racecourse in Ayr is host to the Scottish Grand National and there are exceptional yachting facilities at the Marinas in Troon, Largs and Inverkip. There are many opportunities for game sports in the region, the River Stinchar is a famous salmon fishery and is renowned for its autumn salmon run. There are numerous walks in the area including the Stinchar Valley Trail walks and Changue Forest by Barr with a network of nearly 20 miles of paths and tracks surround the village and pass through the nearby Changue Forest, offering an abundance of wildlife including deer and red squirrels, and spectacular views of the South Ayrshire countryside.

Stretching for some 91 miles, the popular Ayrshire Coastal Path runs along Ayrshire’s sandy beaches through rural countryside with superb vistas out to sea with the great Ailsa Craig and the attractive backdrop of the Isle of Arran seen across the Firth of Clyde.

Low Tralorg is a large extended country cottage built of stone on one and a half storeys with a white render finish under a slate roof and two timber framed extensions. It has been improved and extended over the years to include a disabled access ramp with handrail to the front of the adjoining self contained one bedroom annexe.

Low Tralorg is a charming and unusual country property with much potential for a variety of uses. It has however been unoccupied for a number of years and requires a degree of upgrading and modernisation as a result.
