Portpatrick harbour & hotelsDumfries & Galloway
The harbourside area taken near low tide on a quiet Tuesday morning.
From left to right The Waterfront (in blue), The Crown Hotel (white & black), Smuggler's Cove
(gift shop, green) and on the corner, The Harbour House Hotel.
Also a few private houses, many of which can be rented for holidays and weekends.
Behind are the ruins of Old Portpatrick Church of St Andrew and its associated graveyard.
Along the cliff-top you can see The Portpatrick Hotel, Fernhill Hotel, Braefield
Self Catering and Rickwood House.
At the bottom left is the very beginning (or end?) of the Southern Upland Way
winding up the hill at the left edge of the cliff and on the right the
Village Hall and the putting green.
With the Portpatrick Hotel at the top and at the lower level below a children's
playpark, tennis courts and a football pitch and to the right the bowling club.
The inset at the bottom right is of the statue of Robert Burns at the far side of the bowling green.
The steps up and over the hill to the left are the start of the Southern Upland Way.
The Portpatrick Hotel from the far side, looking down at the bowling green and harbour far below.
The Lighthouse Pottery at the south side of the harbour, still closed but opening
in mid-June 2022 until the end of August.
On the left are Connor's Restaurant, The Boardwalk Café, Portpatrick Arcade
and behind and above them, Seaview Holiday Apartments.
As you can see from all of the photos there's ample parking all round the village.
