Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and Tearoom- Scotland's most southerly point..and home baking!

Port Logan Fish Farm , Newton Stewart and Castle Douglas (shopping) are all with easy reach for day trips.


Portpatrick,often acknowledged as the regions jewel in the crown, hosts a variety of pleasant distractions to make to your stay special.

The village of Portpatrick boasts it's own beach only yards from the house plus secluded coves and bays within a few minutes walk. For those with cars there are even more beauty spots up and down the penisula.

Local activities such as Golfing ( both 9 and 18 hole holiday courses),putting green,tennis,bowling,fishing are literally on your doorstep.

Curling (Winter) and indoor swimming pool are a short drive away in Stranraer.

Excellent choice of pubs and restaurants are less than 3 mins walk so you can leave the car and no need for taxi's for that wee night out.

Lifeboat week in August and the Portpatrick Folk Festival are always lively but with a very laid back and friendly atmosphere and well worth attending!

The house is also at the starting point of the Southern Upland Way to blow away the cobwebs along the picturesque coastal path.
