Self-catering accommodation in Portpatrick
Portpatrick is an idyllic harbour village at the very westerly tip of Dumfries and Galloway. A ring of pretty pastel-coloured houses line the curve of the harbour and the town is backed by sheltering coastal cliffs. Portpatrick harbour surrounds a peaceful bay; at night, the glow from the houses reflects onto the calm water creating a truly beautiful sight. The scenic surroundings make this coastal village the ideal place for a romantic getaway for two, a family holiday to the east coast, or a group get-together for a special occasion.
Just a short stroll to the south of the village and guarding the horizon are the ruins of Dunskey Castle dating from the 16th century. The trail to the castle takes in a steep climb and a route across a little bridge, and offers some stunning sea views from its clifftop location. Stay in a cottage in Portpatrick for a charming seaside holiday; the town itself is in a beautiful and peaceful location offering plenty of walks, being the start to the Southern Uplands Way, which runs all the way across to Scotland’s east coast.
