If this pretty lovingly restored detached cottage could talk it would have some fascinating tales to tell as it was originally a toll cottage on the old Ayr to Newton Stewart road and horse and carriage would have been the mode of transportation then. Nowadays Auchalton Toll Cottage sits detached in peaceful retirement within this pastoral valley. As a base it is simply marvellous with the stunning Ayrshire coast within a short drive; the magnificent Culzean Castle; the conservation village of Straiton and the glorious Galloway Park, the UK’s largest. Golf is available nearby.
