Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. (earlier/later by arrangement) in the sunny Dining Room overlooking the lawn. You will be treated to a full traditional Scottish breakfast straight from the AGA.

Local Attractions :

Challoch Farm is conveniently sited for those wishing to visit Galloway Forest Park, South Ayrshire, The Machars and The Mull of Galloway. The attractions near Challoch Farm are summarised below.

Challoch Farm is 2½ miles north of Newton Stewart in the valley of the River Cree. It is an ideal base from which to enjoy the many countryside activities in this beautiful corner of Scotland.

Dumfries and Galloway holds many excellent nature reserves; the nearest is the RSPB Reserve at Wood of Cree, where there are many species of songbirds, but there is also the huge local authority coastal reserve at Wigtown.

For details of all the Nature Reserves in Dumfries and Galloway, go to Nature Reserves on the Dalbeattie Wildlife Website. Also go to Views of Galloway for pictures of this beautiful area.

We are within 12 miles of the outstanding beauty of Glen Trool, the site of a victory won by King Robert the Bruce in his quest to keep Scotland an independent Kingdom.

Not much further away is the Merrick, at 844 metres (2770 feet) the highest hill in the Southern Uplands, but only one of the beautiful and unspoilt walks in this area.

The Galloway Forest Park has many pleasant walks and nature trails, or you may prefer to head south, east or west, to enjoy the varied coastlines of the Machars, the Stewartry and the Rhins. These peninsulas are a joy to explore, with their ancient Standing Stones, ruined Castles, flower-rich Gardens and old Burgh Towns. Wigtown is Scotland's new National Book Town, whilst the nearby town of Whithorn is older than Iona, being the cradle of Christianity in Scotland.

For the dedicated sportsman, there are a wide range of choices. Dumfries and Galloway has thirty Golf Courses, whilst arrangements can be made in Newton Stewart for all types of Deerstalking, Wildfowling and Fishing.

Choosing Challoch :

Whilst being situated in the country we are conveniently near to Newton Stewart, a small and busy market town that provides a warm welcome for visitors to this area. Its varied selection of places to eat offer a range of choices, from budget-priced meals to full Á la Carte or Table d'Hôte Dinners from award-winning 'Taste of Scotland' Chefs.
