Portpatrick

Portpatrick is a pretty town of pastel-coloured houses, set around a small bay with cliffs forming the backdrop. A former port for transportation to and from Northern Ireland, Portpatrick is now a peaceful holiday resort.

Sea angling is a popular pastime in these parts, as is walking, with options including a short stroll along the cliffs to Dunskey Castle. The Southern Upland Way starts here and continues for 212 miles, all the way to the east coast.

Portpatrick Folk Festival is a three-day celebration of folk music which takes place in September.

Within the town, there are some great places to eat, and several shops offering a variety of wares.
