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.

Blown away

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

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.

Lovely site in a great location

We spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The site is well laid out with fantastic views, within walking distance of the nearby beach (15 minutes or so) and within driving distance of all the local places of interest. The access roads are quite narrow but it is not too far to the nearest main road, Friendly welcome from Ian, and all very relaxing. Would recommend and hope to return.

Stunning and quiet location

Just back from 4 nights at South Port o Spittal over a stunning September weekend. Road to the site is narrow but easily found using the instructions in the CAMC book. We had phoned ahead and were told to take any empty pitch and bagged a grass pitch with stunning views over the Irish sea to Larne. Hard standing pitches were also available. Surprising give the shortage of site during these strange times the pitches were never all full. Due to COVID only one loo/shower was open but that was fine. This is not a site for those that want to walk to the pub or a shop as Portpatrick is about 4 miles away. There is a quaint hotel about a mile away next to a lovely wee cove but be warned and take a very bendy credit card if you want a refreshment! Brilliant for site for walkers or cyclists

Enjoyable visit

We have just spent 3 nights on this very pleasant cl. Pitches are grass or hardstanding and all have lovely views across the sea to Ireland. We enjoyed the 15minute walk down to the local beach which took slightly longer coming back. Loved watching the sheep in the field next to the cl. There is a combined toilet and shower room available. It was windy as we expected but it didn’t rain! The approach roads are very narrow with very few passing places plus the signage approaching cl could be improved.
