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’.

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. 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). A short drive will take you to Castle Kennedy and Glenwhan gardens. Across the bay from the site is the Logan Fishpond, an opportunity to see native fish in a unique, natural environment. If it's birdlife you want to see, visit the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse, where puffins, kittiwakes, and guillemots nest on spectacular cliffs more than 100 metres high. During nesting season, if you are lucky you  may see 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 take a day trip to Northern Ireland using the ferry from Cairnryan.

The nearest shop (most Southerly in Scotland) and pubs, are 4 miles away in Drummore. There are two pubs, both serving meals, and one that serves cask real ale. There are cafes at 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.

Wonderful!

Port Logan Caravan Site
Recently spent 7 nights here, wish we had booked for more. We were warmly welcomed by owners Pam and Adrian and our pitch pointed out and given tips on how best to pitch (the site is sloping and blocks are needed). It was a 6 hour drive for us but within 30 minutes of arriving we were relaxed and couldn’t believe how lucky we were to be there. The weather was fantastic which is always a help but the views from the site were the best I’ve ever experienced from a site. The beach was a 2 min walk away and we watched dolphins playing in the bay a couple of times during our stay. The 7 nights min stay helped keep movement of vehicles to a minimum which enhanced the peace and quiet. There was a key to a very clean and well stocked toilet. There is lots to do in the area and we will definitely visit again. I feel that every CL we stay at after this may be a disappointment!

The views here are amazing and the owner, Pam, is so welcoming and helpful. The pitches are huge with plenty of slates to help with levelling. The very quiet beach is on your doorstep and there are plenty of local places to visit. Mull of Galloway Lighthouse and Portpatrick are our favourites. It is the most beautiful place we have stayed. We enjoyed kayaking and swimming from the beach. There is a very clean toilet with cold water. Definitely one we will return to.

Peace and Relaxation in an Amazing Place

Port Logan Caravan Site
Monday 19th June to Monday 26th June 2023 We were delighted to secure a booking on this wonderful CL owned by Pam and Adrian. Having camped at nearby New England Bay site many times, we knew about the CL and hoped to book it at some point. We were very glad we did. Our stay even exceeded our expectations. With only three pitches we had lots of personal space. Pam welcomed us on arrival and she and Adrian were always on hand or nearby if we needed anything. The pitch was beautifully maintained, although sloping but we were able to level up without any problem. We did put up our awning but it was very windy at times, of course, this is to be expected, being high up and on the coast. There was 10amp hook up, water tap, rubbish disposal (glass at the bottom of the hill as well as dog waste). Locked toilet which was kept spotless. The views were amazing, over the sea to Ireland, in the bay at Port Loggan or watching the birds and wild life on the site. Our dogs absolutely loved the beach. It was so close by and usually empty. There are no shops, bars or eateries in Port Loggan. However, The Moo Poo is a beautiful little craft premises right on the shore front, I had a lovely chat with the owner and bought a few gifts to take home. The area is beautiful and over the years we have explored most of it so this time we just sat and relaxed. We had a wonderful week and have already booked for next year.

Fantastic site

Port Logan Caravan Site
We really enjoyed our 3 week stay on this fantastic campsite, the owners are very friendly and helpful. The views over the bay are stunning. The site is very peaceful and by only having 3 caravans on site the pitches feel spacious and the minimum of a 7 night stay helps with the peacefulness as you don’t have the daily comings and goings that you can experience on other sites. The field is sloping so it is worth having levelling blocks. Ideal location if you enjoy sea fishing as there are plenty of marks in the area, and if you have a boat the bay is an ideal location for launching. This is a site we will definitely be returning to as it is now one of our favourite sites and we also love the area.

Scenic and peaceful

Port Logan Caravan Site
We spent a week at Port Logan Campsite in mid-May 2023. The first thing to mention is the view, it's wonderful! The site is located on a small cliff and overlooks the bay and out into the Irish Sea where the lights of Belfast can be seen at night. Port Logan is utterly unspoiled and we pretty much had the long sandy beach to ourselves most of the time, much to the delight of our Labrador, Fudge. The site is sloping and you may need blocks for your front corner steadies, Pam and Adrian were super-friendly and kindly lent us some for the duration of our stay. Due to the peaceful nature of the area, the local wildlife are thriving and abundant with 2 deer seeming to live just at the end of the road. All in all a great CL and we intend to return.
