Why stay here ...

The CL at South Port ‘O’ Spittal, with sea views, is situated a short 10 minute drive away from the picture post-card harbour village of Portpatrick.  The village boasts a few excellent pubs and restaurants overlooking the harbour.  The village itself is home to a top notch lifeboat and the famous lifeboat week in August attracts many visitors to the village.

Within one hour of the CL is the Mull of Galloway, the most southern part of Scotland and home to an RSPB nature reserve. There are a number of designated walks in the area including the Mull of Galloway Trail.

For those with an interest in gardens there are the Logan Botanic Gardens, arguably Scotland's most exotic garden, whilst a short drive away to the north are the 75 acres of Castle Kennedy gardens.

A popular day trip is by ferry from nearby Cairnryan to the bustling city of Belfast with its excellent shopping possibilities and of course it’s first rate Titanic exhibition.

The nearest main centre is Stranraer with Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl available for the larger grocery shop and all the other usual facilities.

Within a short distance from the CL are a number of sports opportunities including golf, fishing, etc. The Ryan Centre at Stranraer is an indoor sports complex.

All in all, there is something for everyone within a short drive from Port ‘O’ Spittal.

Coastal delight

South Port o'Spittal
Excellent site tucked away in the south west corner of Scotland. Warm welcome from extremely laid back owner Ian, had total choice of pitch as only one other van on site when we arrived. Stunning views from the site across to Ireland almost parallel with Belfast where we saw a cruise ship leave through the evening haze. Well placed for touring the isle of Whithorn, the coastal route is stunning. Can thoroughly recommend this site for a warm welcome and peaceful stay. Will certainly return. Jim & Nancy & wee Bailey

Views Across the Irish Sea

South Port o'Spittal
We found the site after travelling along progressively smaller roads, but there are passing places. We didn't meet the owner until our last day when we contacted him about payment so it all seemed a bit laissez faire about where to park. The site seemed to be divided into two parts with hardstanding where we first drove in and then grass further down. The grass has the better views so we parked there and used our chocks. There was a laundry room which had a sign on saying it was closed although after I'd done 3 lots of handwashing I discovered it was in fact open and in use! There was also a shower room, although only one shower seemed to be in use but we used our own facilities. One of the things missing from this otherwise beautiful site, was useful and up to date signage. The owner was very friendly, when we met him. There are three wind turbines which can be quite noisy when they get going in the wind. They create a background swish a bit like helicopter rotary blades (but without the engine noise!). It wasn't too obtrusive but some people may be particularly susceptible to that kind of noise. On our second day the wind dropped so they were still, which was when we realised how much noise they'd made. From the site it is a short drive/walk/cycle to Portpatrick, Ardwell Bay and Stranraer.

Wonderful Place

South Port o'Spittal
If you’re looking to relax then this is the place for you but with easy access to Portpatrick where several pubs serving food can be found. All pitches had a water tap which for us is the icing on the cake. Lovely views over to Ireland and the sight of the sun shining on the sea will have you reaching for your camera. Ian the owner was friendly and helpful, the pitches were well kept and spacious. Cannot comment on facilities as didn’t use but can thoroughly recommend this little gem of a site.

Blown away

South Port o'Spittal
We spent 6 nights here, a fantastic site. The header refers to the weather which to be honest was bloody awful for the whole of the time we were there. Should have realised that as there are two turbines on the site there might have been an occasional bit of wind. Saying that we picked one of the hardstandings, the grass pitches were waterlogged on arrival and even more so when we left. Sat Nav took us straight to the site, the owner was away collecting sheep but called the next day to sort things out. We had the site to ourselves. Good access to all the local attractions. Covid did put a damper on things. Imagine going into a pub and not allowed a drink. Only outside by Ms Sturgeons rules. Great site, nice owners we will return.

Stunning views

South Port o'Spittal
Visited beginning of September. As mentioned narrow approach but wasn’t a problem. Ian was welcoming and very helpful. Grass kept well mown. Choice of hard standing or grass pitches, all with views to N Ireland. Covid precautions well thought out. We didn’t use the facilities but they were in use. Hand sanitisers provided at communal points eg water taps. Excellent value for money.
