I visited Portpatrick on the hottest day in Britain in July 19 I stayed there from the 18-22 of July and toured around the different coastal regions there whilst staying at The Portpatrick hotel on the cliff overlooking the port. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there with its lovely sands and lighthouse, rocks and quaint village. There were beautiful sunsets... More

This was my first visit back to Portpatrick in over thirty years and it was even more picturesque than I remembered. This must be what what Cornwall was like in the nineteen fifties. There is a busy, working harbour, a lifeboat station, plenty of shops and tea rooms, and lots of space to sit down and have a picnic.

The place hasn't really changed much, but thats a good thing in my book. Its just great to walk around the harbour and take in the... More

Unfortunate to vist on a not too pleasant a day. However the scenery is amazing. On a fine summers day it must be breathtaking. Walked on the beach and watched a 'local' launching his fishing skiff. Attempted conversation with him by asking him what he was going out to catch, in a grunted and forced effort he said 'fish' I... More

My first experience of Portpatrick was as a newly-wed twenty five years ago, so it seemed very fitting to visit again during our stay in nearby Castle Douglas for our Silver anniversary. I love the harbour and the "bracing" fresh air walks. The lighthouse is charming and there are a few nice little gift shops. We went into one such... More
