A beneficiary of the relatively favourable weather is the Logan Botanic Gardens at Port Logan, commonly accepted to be Scotland’s most exotic garden. It houses a remarkable collection of bizarre and interesting plants and a number of other features such as the Walled Garden help to add to the visitor experience. It is a must for plant lovers and for all those who enjoy seeing something a little bit different. The quaint charm of Port Logan was the location of the highly successful television series ’Two Thousand Acres of Sky’. Port Patrick is known locally as ’the jewel in the crown’ and is a delightful village, full of character and one of the most - see places for visitors to the area and boasts a highly acclaimed sea food restaurant. The Mull of Galloway, the most southerly point in Scotland and a precipitous headland marked by a lighthouse designed by Robert Stevenson, is a wonderful day out for nature and wildlife lovers and offers a good chance of seeing dolphins, seals and many types of seabirds. The Galloway Forest Park, the largest in the UK, is the perfect place to enjoy a day out and a picnic in the fresh air. For beach lovers, the beach at Sandhead is over three miles long and a beautiful spot to enjoy a long and bracing walk in the sea air. The busy ferry port of Stranraer is 11 miles and provides day trips to Belfast (Ireland is only 26 miles from here!) with its excellent range of shops and eating places. Golfers are also well catered for with at least seven courses within easy reach of the property including the award winning course at Stranraer, on the shore of Loch Ryan. This region is holiday-haven with something for everybody to enjoy in this beautiful part of Scotland.
