A pretty harbour village that charms visitors from around the world

Portpatrick is a pretty harbour village full of charm, situated on the south-west coast of Scotland.

With numerous stunning views of the rugged and spectacular coastline, Portpatrick has become a popular destination for those seeking a relaxing break away from it all.

The Rhins of Galloway coastline, both north and south of Portpatrick, boasts a number of secluded bays and beaches while the area benefits from the Gulf Stream passing nearby. This ensures a mild climate where sub-tropical plants and trees flourish as witnessed by the Logan Royal Botanical Gardens just a few miles from The Attic.

Portpatrick is at the western end of the 212-mile long Southern Upland Way which runs from the village across the South of Scotland to Cockburnspath on the east coast.

The crescent-shaped harbour’s sandy ‘beach’ is accessible and popular with families in the summer months.
