Ardwell is the nearest small village approximately 2 miles north of Balgowan, and Port Logan approximately 2.4 miles west is a peaceful hamlet set in a stunning coastal location with a beach, picturesque harbour, and the world’s oldest Marine Life Centre, Logan Fish Pond. Logan Botanic Gardens, Scotland’s most exotic gardens is less than 2 miles from Balgowan, where a variety of tropical plants flourish in the warmer climate, a result of the Gulf Stream being prevalent in this part of the region.

The Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s southernmost point, is approximately 9.8miles south of Balgowan, at the Mull of Galloway you can climb the Lighthouse, visit the Exhibition of Lighthouse History, walk around the RSPB Scotland nature reserve, enjoy food and drink at Scotland’s most southerly coffee house Gallie Craig.

DESCRIPTION 1 & 2 Balgowan Cottages offer a beach retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a real escape to the country with uninterrupted views over Luce Bay and a small paddock. At present they are two semi-detached properties with a shared outbuilding known as ‘The Bothy’ but there is the potential to convert the cottages in to one substantial property, subject to the relevant planning permission and consents.
