Things to do locally

Activities and Attractions

If you're looking for a range of things to do in and around Portpatrick, then visit Loch Ryan Leisure. They offer RIB boat rides, fishing trips and RYB Power Boat courses. Why not try your hand at some mountain biking with 7 Staines mountain bike trials. If biking isn't your thing then how about walking coast to coast with Southern Upland Way. If you just want to sit down with a nice hot drink and enjoy the views then Gallie Craig Coffee House - an award winning cliff top coffee house is the place to visit.

Walking, Swimming, Beachcombing

There are so many lovely walks in the area you could spend a lifetime exploring them. We have every kind of sea shore you could want, too, from beautiful sandy beaches, to spectacular cliffs and pretty coves. There’s a swimming pool in Stranraer if the sea’s too cold for you.
