Why stay here ...

Pam and Adrian would like to welcome you to Port Logan Caravan Site, in the beautiful Rhins of Galloway. Port Logan is a wee, tranquil village, immortalised in the BBC series, ‘2000 Acres of Sky’. A bus service from the village, takes you to Stranaer or Drummore.

Situated on Muldaddie hill, our adults only site provides electric hookup points, WC and basin (cold water only), and chemical disposal point. The site is a grassy, sloping field, so levelling blocks may be needed, and it can get quite blustery on occasions. A hard standing is available for larger outfits or motorhomes. Well behaved pets are welcome.

Our pitches enjoy spectacular views over the bay, and across to Northern Ireland. On a clear night, the lights of Belfast, and the brightly lit ferries in the North Channel are visible. Officially a ‘dark sky’ region, our night skies are inky black so bring binoculars/telescope.  Also, the sunsets at Port Logan are legendary….so bring your camera!

The vistas from your pitch are ever changing; watch boats in the bay, gannets fishing, swallows swooping for insects, and hares boxing…all this without leaving your sofa! If you are patient, you might spot a sea otter on the rocky shoreline.

If you wish to explore, there are many things locally to see and do. Garden enthusiasts are spoilt for choice. On the doorstep, visit sub tropical Logan Botanic Gardens to see rare trees and plants from the Southern Hemisphere (plus a super café). Also, Logan House Gardens with spring displays of rhododendrons and a monkey puzzle avenue, and Ardwell House with its ponds. Further a-field are Glenwhan, Castle Kennedy, and Dunskey Castle gardens. 

Across the bay is the Logan Fishpond, a unique opportunity to see fish in a natural environment. If it’s birdlife that you want to see, visit the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, where puffins, kittiwakes, and guillemots nest on spectacular cliffs more than 100 metres high. When nesting, watch the peregrine swooping in for lunch! From your pitch, expect to see; oyster catchers, curlews, sparrow hawks, kestrels, buzzards and many other species. 

For active types, bring walking boots and bicycles. There are miles of quiet lanes and coastal walks to explore, plus the recently opened Drummore to Stranraer footpath. The area is renowned for fishing. From the pier or shore, expect to catch numerous species including bass and flat fish. Watercraft can be launched directly from the beach, and charter boats are available from Drummore and Portpatrick. For golfers, a choice of courses are available within driving distance. It is also possible to visit Northern Ireland using the ferry from Cairnryan.

The nearest shop (most Southerly in Scotland) and pubs, are 4 miles away in Drummore. There are three pubs, all of which serve food, and one that serves cask real ale. There are cafes at Sandhead, Drummore and the Mull of Galloway, and pub/restaurants in Portpatrick and Sandhead. Stranraer is the nearest town with supermarkets, banks and chemists, plus museums, a cinema and leisure centre.

Best views ever

We enjoyed a two week stay here in July 2017. The sea views are amazing from the caravan and we loved being able to stroll down to the beach close by without needing to take the car. The beach was quiet, even on sunnier days. Our greyhounds loved being able to run off lead safely in the evenings when we practically had the beach to ourselves! The sunsets here are just amazing. Pam and Adrian are very welcoming and hard-working owners. We came for rest and relaxation, which we definitely achieved, and also spent some time exploring the area, including some of the public gardens, many of which are dog-friendly. The Mull of Galloway is well worth a visit and has a great café. The fishpond across the bay is also well worth a visit. The person running the fishpond will appreciate anything from Greggs bakery as there isn't one for miles around! We found the drive to Stranraer reasonably quick because the roads are quiet and very well maintained. Portpatrick is a beautiful fishing village well worth a visit. Despite is being summer, the downside of the site was the wind, but that's probably normal for coastal sites. We put a heavy duty awning up, which was fine, but we took it down temporarily when a storm was forecast. We have a porch-style awning and because the ground sloped up from the caravan it was difficult to get a snug fit between the edges of the awning and the caravan. We loved the peacefulness of Port Logan and found the villagers to be particularly welcoming and friendly towards visitors. It will be great when the hotel refurbishment has been completed so that there is somewhere close by to go for a meal or drink.

Outstanding.

Due to the weather of rain, rain, we bit sun and more rain on south west coast of Scotland in 2017, this site took its toll resulting in wet ground. However site is situated high and wind helps to dry things off quicker. The one item to take with you on going here that is a must, is not welly boots but Binoculars, as your field of view is emence as can be seen in site pictures. We arrived there in September with our 23 foot Motorhome for three days and they had been having the dreaded rain up till then. The Motorhome placement placement was a bit of a mess due the soggy hardstanding but the proprieters gave us info before hand about it with option to cancel if we wanted. We wanted to be there though as we are used to the rain as we reside near Dumfries. We were given a substitute location which suited us and views were still outstanding. Overall we hope the Motorhome hardstanding is taken care of as we intend to return next year.

Stunning

The most beautiful views from this campsite. We booked early in the year directly with Pam and Adrian. We Messed Pam and Adrian around a couple of times due to changes in our circumstances and we always received a lovely email back accommodating us. As Pam and Adrian weren’t there we were greeted by the worlderful Andrea. The views from this site are stunning. The weather was mixed which meant the scenery kept changing. Yes it windy and yes it can get wet and can be fun to get off in a caravan but this is one of the nicest sites we have ever stayed on. The sunsets are incredible. Thank you Pam and Adrian for sticking with us as we messed you around and for Andrea for making our stay entertaining.

Lovely CL

Just returned from having seven nights at this peaceful and lovely CL. We were looked after by Andrea, who made us very welcomed. The views are great, toilet facilities etc were very good. Yes, it can be windy but our awning stood up to the wind. On our last day we watched a wedding take place on the harbour wall and were treated to a firework display with all the wedding guests in the evening We visited many place and even had a trip over to Northern Ireland. This is only our third trip to a CL, but I hope it will not be our last to Port Logan. The only thing which would have put the cherry on the cake, is if they had a pub in the village that you could have a evening stroll to.
