Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Lodge

We, William and Jackie, invite you to stay in our Log Cabin in a beautiful part of South West Scotland. The Cabin has three bedrooms - 2 double (1 with ensuite) and 1 twin - and comfortably accomodates 6 people.


Our Scottish self catering holiday rental log cabin, is very well appointed and nestles amongst the trees in its own enclosed woodland garden.  It is in the spectacular Dumfries and Galloway countryside of South West Scotland, on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park. It is not on a site and is situated on one side of a picturesque valley.

​​The cabin offers interest to amateur astronomers and romantics alike as it is ideal for Dark Skies Gazing - with the Galloway Forest Park being declared the first Dark Sky Park in the UK.

Cloud Cuckoo Lodge is 3 miles from Lochinvar and St. John's Town of Dalry (which has a village shop and 2 hotels with good bars and eating facilities) and within easy reach of market towns and the stunning Solway Coast bays and beaches.



Cloud Cuckoo Lodge is ideal for walking and cycling holidays, photography, or just rest & relaxation. It is situated on the Southern Upland Way. It is very close to Loch Ken, with its wide range of recreational amenities, and other nearby attractions include golf, fishing, bird watching and Galloway Kite Trail.

We are also perfectly located for anyone wishing to explore the South West Coastal 300 route.

We are becoming very popular as an out of the way venue for Weddings and Honeymoons, so if you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful setting for your special occasion...

LIThis video was made by a Cloud Cuckoo Lodge visitor in February 2019. Although a bit out of date, it is so nice that we have kept it on the site.

Tucked away, this is Cloud Cuckoo Lodge.

"Absolutely perfect weekend away in the cutest log cabin nestled away in a forest filled with red squirrels.

"Cloud Cuckoo Lodge was a little piece of heaven and we’ll never forget it.

"The Cabin - Excellent & bigger than I thought, very very clean. Everything you need is there & what a perfect base to visit all the awesome things Dumfries & Galloway has to offer.
Superb location. If you like to look at the stars then there are fewer places in the world that can better the Dark Sky Forest. Even just outside the Cabin is awesome for stargazing.

"You can see the most incredible sky. Last night, you could literally see the Milky Way going straight over the cabin. It looks so amazing.

"It is a world away from reality where you can relax and enjoy life in a stress free environment. The cabin is fabulously appointed with every conceivable item you could ever need...
