Off-Grid Holiday Lets

The Otter

Nestled on its own private decking, complete with hot tub and secret lochan this one-of-a-kind eco cabin gives you complete privacy in complete luxury. The Otter sleeps 2 and is furnished and finished with style. Bespoke decor, Egyptian cotton sheets, and an outdoor dining area provide the ideal setting to relax and spend some quality time with your loved one. Secluded and serene, the Otter is the ultimate romantic getaway.


The luxury eco cabin was built with sustainability in mind and is powered by solar panels and heated with a wood-burning stove. It also has a rain shower, fully fitted kitchen with small fridge, gas cooker, grill and oven and is complete with all the utensils you'll need to whip up a romantic meal. With no TV, no WIFI and no plug sockets, the Otter is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A sedum roof and sheep's wool insulation complete the environmentally friendly design.


There's a wealth of activities available during your getaway - the Galloway Activity Centre offers a variety of taster sessions if you feel like trying something new; enjoy a romantic stroll through the trails of Galloway forest park or take your exclusive-use kayak onto the water for a day of exploring... Then take in the sunset before a glass of champagne in the hot tub, relaxing under the shimmer of the stars in the darkest skies in Scotland.
