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.

Lovely site and locality

Our second trip to this site and well worth the long journey from the Midlands. Stunning views and surroundings , lots to do in the locality and whilst the weather wasn't always great that is to be expected and didn't spoil our time spent here. Visited some glorious gardens. coastline and towns all dog friendly. Took trips to Carsluith to get lovely fish and smoked foods , although little success in catching our own tea off the cliffs below the site ! Will return one day !

Stunning

We’ve stayed on this site several times over the years and it never fails to deliver. If you want peace, tranquility, fabulous views, stunning sunsets and wildlife then this site has it in bucketloads. There are often extremes of weather at any time of the year so you need to be prepared in terms of warm and waterproof clothes and heavy duty guy ropes and pegs for your awning. Pam and Adrian are so friendly and welcoming and have a wealth of information regarding what’s on in the local area including which pubs have the best craft ales. We can recommend the Clashwannon pub in Drummore, the Tigh na Mara in Sandhead, the Waterfront, Port Pantry and Connors in Portpatrick and the Steampacket in the Isle of Whithorn for good and plentiful food. Logan Botanical gardens, Glenwahn and Castle Kennedy are all well worth visiting as is the Mull of Galloway. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.. Tillypop

Stunning!

This has to be the most stunning site we have enjoyed for many years. We were made to feel extremely welcome by our hosts, Pam and Adrian. They are living their dream having moved here a couple of years ago after many years of holidaying in the area. Night after night we had to pinch ourselves as we watched wonderful sunsets surrounded by the sights and the sounds of the sea, with all manner pf seabirds swooping over us, some diving vertically from great heights into the sea to catch their supper. We felt so privileged to be here; sites like this are very few and far between. Such quiet, such peace, such views; this CL is extremely special. We can't wait to revisit!

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.
