The village of Portpatrick, nestling under the cliffs, lies on the southwest coast of Wigtownshire in the South of Scotland. Cradled at the foot of rocky cliffs, Portpatrick looks across 22 miles of the Irish Channel to Donaghdee. The Gulf Stream, flowing into the channel from the north, gives the area a mild climate in which sub-tropical plants and trees flourish.

beautiful Portpatrick

It is an ideal base from which to tour the South West, but the countryside surrounding the village also has much to offer. The coastline north and south of Portpatrick is indented with secluded bays and beaches - Morroch Bay, Sandeel Bay, Lairds Bay and perhaps the loveliest of them all, Killantringan.
This is an excellent area for walks, both difficult and easy, and Portpatrick is at the western end of the Southern Upland Way which runs from the village across the South of Scotland to Cockburnspath on the east coast.
Portpatrick is one of 30 stations in Scotland that has a life-boat continually "on call". The life-boat station was established in 1877 and the exhibition, open to visitors, at the harbour is well worth a visit and will serve notice to the valuable work done.
Every September, hundreds of visitors come to share a few days of lively folk performances and sessions in waterfront pubs and around the harbour at the Portpatrick folk festival. This small but beautiful festival has been running successfully for several years now.
