Orroland Lodge - sleeps 14 guests in 7 bedrooms
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Good family base in pleasant rural location.
Orroland Lodge is a good family base in a very pleasant rural location. The estate provides a range of different outdoor areas to explore and it is within easy travelling distance to local small towns. The lodge itself is clean, warm and comfortable with good space to spread out and not feel as though you are all 'on top of one another'. Wifi is limited and mobile signal is poor. I would definitely recommend Orroland Lodge as somewhere you can have a lovely family holiday.
Thank you for your review. It is always a pleasure to meet you and your family and friends each year. We look forward to seeing you again next year. Alice

We enjoyd our 50 weddingsanniverserie with the familie very deeply
Jeannette, it was such a pleasure meeting you and your family, and we are really happy that your visit went so well.
A place of extraordinary beauty
We had an extended family booking and it was perfect. The house itself is a traditional shooting lodge with lovely open spaces and light. The grounds are marvellous - obviously a labour of love. And if you like wildlife, then you are sorted - red squirrels, deer, hedgehogs, pheasants cavorting around like a Disney movie. I would highly recommend it for a peaceful time away from it all.
It was a pleasure to have you at Orroland and we are so happy that you enjoyed all we offer in the surroundings and the wildlife.
This was the second time that my family and I had stayed at Orroland and it certainly lived up to our expecations. Absolutely perfect in every way.
We are so happy to receive your review and meet you all again. It is so rewarding to host guests like yourselves who appreciate all we lay on. Sunshine and exploration, 3-generations down on the shore and enjoying the rowing demonstration on the loch, climbing the tump and spending time together in spacious comfort in the Lodge. Magic.
Fantastic venue for any occasion
Orroland provided a stunning location & accommodation for our wedding. Alice & William were fantastic & even found us a caterer after ours unfortunately had to pull out at the last minute, due to the very early arrival of their newest family member. We would highly recommend Orroland to anyone.
Shaun and Aileen, what a superb review and we are all so pleased that your wedding went so happily. We have never been so glad to be so well connected with catering companies! We all wish you best wishes for your future happiness.
Fantastic property, location and facilities
We had a wonderful holiday at Orroland Lodge during late October. The location is a little remote for shops and restaurants, however that was part of the charm. Kirkcudbright was only 15 minutes drive and is a lovely busy town. Great location for Golf, fishing and general outdoor living. The property is huge and gave our party of 12 plenty of personal and communal space. The living room and Dining room are wonderful for parties and family gatherings. The grounds are fantastic, with lots of space to explore and kids to play. We would highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.
Simon, it was a treat to meet you all and to see your enjoyment of Orroland, outdoors and in the house. It is very rewarding for us to know that all ages had a wonderful time, making the most of the space and freedom on offer here.
Orroland Lodge is located a mile off the A711 between the villages of Auchencairn and Dundrennan.
About the Dumfries and Galloway region
Dumfries and Galloway is like a miniature version of Scotland, condensed down into one region. Not just a great range of activities (should you wish to be active) but lots of Scotland's best features in one place. A place where naturally beautiful countryside meets the sea, with truly scrumptious locally produced food and drink too.
Dumfries and Galloway is home to a stunning 200-miles stretch of coastline, representing the seaside in all its forms; with endless sandy beaches at Port Logan and Sandyhills, leisure-craft on the 'Solway Riviera' at Kippford and fishing boats unloading their catch of scallops in the busy harbour of Kirkcudbright. It's beautiful too – the breath-taking sunset over the Irish Sea seen from the safe haven of Portpatrick harbour epitomises the special atmosphere where this region touches the sea.
It's a common misconception that you have to head for the Highlands to find great Scottish hills, but here you won't be disappointed. Dumfries and Galloway hosts some of the country's very best for walkers of all abilities; from tackling the 212-mile Southern Upland Way or challenging ranges like the 'Awful Hand' to following in the footsteps of ancient cattle rustlers in the Devil's Beef Tub there's plenty to savour. With the birthplace of Christianity, ancient buildings like Caerlaverock Castle and the first home of the Scotsman who founded the American Navy, the south-west is also steeped in history. Dumfries is the heart of Robert Burns' country and Scotland's National Museum of Costume is housed in Shambellie House at nearby New Abbey. The village is also where Sweetheart Abbey stands – home to one of the most romantic stories of them all.
The region also hosts five of the 7Stanes mountain bike trails and 30 golf courses, both links and inland.
Dumfries and Galloway is also becoming very popular for foodies –with Savour the Flavours running two very successful food festivals at either end of the summer season in May and September. You can explore the local countryside, meet local artisan producers of all types of food and drinks and even learn to forage. That countryside is also home to fantastic wildlife – including the Galloway Wild Goat Park, RSPB reserves at Mersehead and Mull of Galloway and a chance to see Red Kites in the wild.
The nearest town to Orroland is Kirkcudbright – the Royal Burgh is Scotland's Artists' Town and comes alive in the summer with a tremendous programme of entertainment including a Jazz Festival, open-air Scottish Nights and a floodlit Tattoo (complete with massed pipe bands) in front of MacLellan's Castle.
As well as a haven for art and craft lovers, Kirkcudbright is also a place for family fun, with an indoor swimming pool run brilliantly by volunteers from the local community. At the Cocoa Bean chocolate factory kids can make chocolate creations in an interactive workshop and explore indoor and outdoor play areas.
