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.

Stunningly beautiful location and excellent welcome

The pictures do not do justice to this breathtaking location and its views and sunsets across the Irish Sea. The welcome and assistance from Pam and Adrian was first class and we needed some help pitching having arrived after a week of heavy rain that had left the ground rather soft. That soon dried up and we had a perfect week exploring the local attractions, with the botanical gardens highly recommended ,boating and fishing from the picture-perfect harbour or just soaking up the views. The facilities are spotlessly clean and well maintained and the site itself is huge for just 5 vans. You needn't be less than 15m from your neighbour. We shall definitely return.

Port Logan Caravan Site, Dumfries & Galloway....Peace perfect peace!!

As others have said this is the site to get away from it all, without traffic noise and beautiful views. The all grass site lies at the end of a concrete drive a couple of hundred yards from the small coastal village of Port Logan, its-self the terminus of two B roads. The site overlooks the Thomas Telford built quay and most of the semicircular mainly sandy bay which extend to the far Mull of Logan headland and then over the North Channel to the distant hills of Northern Ireland. The beach is dog friendly and ideal for our daily walks, and for the angler fishing is easy off both the beach and the quay. The site, which at the moment has only 4 pitches, does slope in two directions so levelling blocks or apparatus are required, and has EHU and toilet . There is no longer a pub or shop in the village and the nearest are at Drummore, about 5 mls away. Major shops such a Aldi, Morrisons (with a petrol station) and a Tesco can be found at Stranraer. There are 6 Gardens open to visitors within easy driving distance including Logan Botanic Gardens and those at Castle Kennedy. Other particular places of interest are the Mull of Galloway with it's lighthouse and Port Patrick, from where the Southern Upland Way long distance footpath starts. The site owners, Pam & Adrian, are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. There is a minimum of 7 night's stay on the site, which may not suit some, but as we and others have found there's plenty to do and see while staying there. It's an excellent site for relaxing and taking things easy. Look forward to returning in due course.

Peace and Tranquility

A very well maintained site with friendly and helpful hosts. The outlook is ever changing and stunning With a 3 min walk to the beach. Not very often do I not want to come home, and would love to visit again and again in the near future. If you want to leave the site, there is a lovely café at the lighthouse, Stranraer has activities during the season, Port Logan Botanical Gardens are also a must. If you want pubs shops etc do not go, as there are none in the village. It all made for a relaxing time to rest and refresh.

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
