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.

Fantastic stay at am amazing CL

Port Logan Caravan Site
We had a 2 week stay recently at this most beautiful site. Pam and Adrian are such lovely, friendly and welcoming hosts. On arrival we were given an information sheet which was very useful full of site and location useful information. The surroundings are absolutely stunning. It is very peaceful and tranquil and has easy access to a beautiful bay with sandy beach. The site information does say it can get blustery, and we can verify that however being on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the North Sea it can be expected. There are no amenities within Port Logan however we are unfortunately still shielding so this did not impact us in any way. I believe there are shops and a pub/restaurant not too far away by car. If you want a lively site and things going on this site is not for you but if you are looking for serenity, beach walks, and a peaceful stay this place is like ‘Narnia’. In summary delightful !! Just a totally superb stay, in fact we have already booked for next year.

Super week at a super CL

Port Logan Caravan Site
Just coming to the end of a lovely week at this great CL. (Just to be aware 7 night bookings only, and not suitable for motor homes or camper vans) Also only accepts 3 vans. We were lucky to get a canx, and I see from their FB page have had canx for July. Pam a extremely friendly helpful owner, welcome envelope on arrival with all the info you should need. A very quiet peaceful site with stunning views. Very clean nautical themed toilet, no hot water. A really quiet lovely beach just minutes away so great for dogs. No shops or pub, so need supplies Stranraer 13 miles away for Petrol and supermarkets. Port Patrick whitch is a lovely village has pub and a shop, a few miles away but worth a visit. Also visited Mull of Galloway and the really unusual Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel a bit out of the way but serve food and great views. Plenty of gardens to visit, the Botanical Garden looks great, but doesn’t allow dogs, so we couldn’t visit. Castle Kennedy good too, didn’t visit this time as viewed on a previous trip. Most of the information can be found on http://www.portlogan.com/cl/. We will almost certainly do a return visit.

Our best CL break so far

Port Logan Caravan Site
Just returned from a week at this fantastic CL. Great weather and so many things to do and see meant all the books we took returned entirely unread. We particularly enjoyed Portpatrick, Lady Bay (for an amazing view of Ailsa Craig), Mull of Galloway, The botanical gardens at Port Logan, a walk around Logan Mills etc etc. One funny thing was that we only ventured into the WC out building towards the end of the holiday - we were expecting something uninviting with the odd spider in the corner - we could not have been more wrong! It was not only impeccable but sea sided themed! We were in a caravan but a real bonus for those in campervans without facilities. And of course the view! We had some great sunsets and all in all we agreed it was our best CL break so far. As others have said the owners are very nice and helpful.

Peace and tranquillity at Port Logan

Port Logan Caravan Site
We have just returned from a two week stay at Port Logan CL It is a beautifully kept site with stunning views of the sea and bay. Pam and Adrian are friendly and helpful hosts. It is in a lovely area with many beautiful gardens within easy reach. Logan botanic gardens are within walking distance and Kennedy castle gardens and Glenwhan gardens are about 25mins away. Portpatrick a lovely little seaside town is about 20mins away. Port Logan fish farm is also an interesting visit. It is a lovely area to walk and there are lots of unspoilt beaches including Ardwell Bay. Culzean Castle is an 1 1/2 coastal drive with lovely scenery well worth the trip. Great stay we will be returning here again. Janette and Ron

We can't really add much more than the recent reviews as we agree with all that is said. Our 5th week on a 6 week tour of the North & one of the most idyllic settings you will find for a gorgeous sea view. Easy access tho levelling can be a challenge. Lovely owners & nice clean toilet facilities. Views to savour & nice sandy cove to walk along in the evenings. Plenty to see & do for our week. Drive to Galloway forest & surrounding area are worth it. Enjoyed our stay immensely...5/5 for us. NB.. weather has been fabulous too! Martin & Mandy
