Description

Situated in the pretty harbour village of Portpatrick and only 75 yards from the seafront, beach and harbour, this terraced property is in an ideal location from which to explore the beautiful south west coast of Scotland. Boasting a stunning coastline with sandy beaches, rugged shingle beaches, rocky coves and windswept cliffs, the area is a walker’s paradise. The Southern Upland Way passes close by and offers everything from gentle walks to challenging hikes and there are many coastal villages to explore in the area. The town of Stranraer is 6 miles and offers supermarkets, shops, restaurants, pubs and the Castle of St John.

Wildlife is abundant with many unusual species including pine martens, golden eagle, ospreys, red deer, red squirrels and the natterjack toad. At the southern tip of the Rhins Peninsula you will find the RSPB Mull of Galloway Visitor Centre which is well worth a visit, with thousands of nesting sea birds on the cliffs in season. Climb the steps to the top of the lighthouse and be rewarded with breathtaking views. There is also a gift shop and café. At the northern tip of the Rhins Peninsula is Corsewall Lighthouse, which has a restaurant and bar. Also worth a visit is Logan Botanic Garden where many tropical species of plants and trees thrive due to the warming influence of the Gulf Stream.

About the local area

The unspoilt beauty of this south west corner of Scotland is the perfect antidote to the hurly burly of modern life. Here there are deserted beaches, magnificent forests, rugged moors and beautiful lochs, all unblemished and untouched by tourism. But Dumfries and Galloway is not only perfect for chilled-out holidays, if you want a bit more action you can also find a range of activities and sports, from walking and cycling to golf and fishing.

To the west of the region is the quiet market town of Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree. This is a popular area for walkers and cyclists with open rolling countryside and close by to the Galloway Forest Park. In contrast with gentle scenery of the Solway Firth the Galloway Hills to the north has beautiful moors, mountains, lakes and rivers, with at its heart the Galloway Forest Park, some 150,000 acres of forest land with waymarked trails that are ideal for trekking and cyclists.

Formal gardens and country parks can be found throughout this area, the foremost of which is Threave Garden and Castle just south of Castle Douglas along the shores of Loch Carlingwark, renowned for its horticultural gardens and woodland covering some sixty acres. To the north of the town Loch Ken provides for more strenuous activities such as waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing.

To the south are the sandy coves and estuarine mudflats of the Solway Firth. The charming coastal resort of Kirckcudbright sits half way along the coast and was once a busy shipping port but now has a more tranquil atmosphere. Further east The Colvend coast has some lovely stretches of coastline and coastal villages providing moorings for visiting yachts and boat hire.

Inland on the River Nith, Dumfries is the regions largest town and a great base from which to explore the whole area. The town is also renowned for its associations with Robert Burns who spent the last five years of his life here.
