Portpatrick is a fishing and holiday resort in Dumfries and Galloway situated on the south-west coast of Scotland close to the Rhins of Galloway. The village dates back to c1500 with the ruins of Dunskey Castle on the clifftop to the south and the roofless remains of the Old Parish Church with its circular tower. Portpatrick’s first pier was built in 1774 and was the main port for trade with Ireland during the 17th and 18th centuries, however, the harbour became unsuitable for the large steamships and in the 1860’s trade moved to neighbouring Stranraer. Portpatrick is a beautiful resort and is a popular tourist destination complete with shops, a selection of holiday accommodation, hotels and restaurants. At the southern end of the village are the small harbour Lighthouse and the Lighthouse Pottery, pleasure and fishing boat-trips are offered from the harbour. The Southern Upland Way is a well-known 212 mile walk starting from Portpatrick, walking though forest and moorland heading east to Cockburnspath in Berwickshire, the route takes in picturesque scenery, wildlife and ancient historical features including standing stones, hut circles and cairns. Nearby attractions include an 18-hole championship golf course on the shores of Lochryan, Castle Kennedy and Gardens, Logan Botanic Garden and Creetown Gem Rock Museum with exhibits from all over the world.
