There is something I love about escaping from the city and venturing back home, which is located in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

A small seaside boat town, disconnected from so much and with minimal service, is exactly what I need after some stressful days or months in the city.

This fantastic little cottage, which over 100 years ago used to be a fisherman’s home, is now a 3-bedroom, 6-sleeper cottage with a seafront view. (Literally!)

I usually take the train from Waverley station to Lockerbie, which takes less than an hour, and then take a taxi, which takes about an hour. We always use PA Taxis; they are so friendly, lovely, and reasonably priced! So if you’re not driving, I highly recommend them!

Coming here gives me the chance to rejuvenate, decompress, and feel at home. There isn’t much to do here apart from relaxing, eating, drinking, and taking long walks through the woods.

perfect for small family getaways and dog lovers. This is ideal because it is calm and quiet, there is wifi for checking on things that are accessible, and the cottage is so cosy and comfortable because so many wonderful people have renovated and taken care of it.

24/7 support and help, and friendly family and home touches.

My sister has been living in this town for over three years, and my family has had this cottage here for over 32 years. With my international background, knowing where home is has always been challenging, but something about this place makes me feel so comfortable.

Because everything is so far apart, you’ll need a car if you live here. The next little town over is a town called Dalbeattie. But as mentioned, PA Taxis are happy and at hand.

I tend to stop at Tescos, stock up, and snuggle in for the week, or head to the local pub down the road, which is no longer than a 3-minute walk. It’s a small commute, great food, local sports, and lovely service. This is the Anchor and Mariner! You can’t go wrong with good fish and chips!

I sometimes come up here for only three days and stay for almost two weeks at a time. Before I head back to the crazy city and lifestyle, I lead in the centre of Edinburgh (now Malta). Everybody needs a place to relax, and if I’m not in Malta or Edinburgh, I will most probably be here!
