Situated in the pretty harbour village of Portpatrick and only 75 yards from the seafront, beach and harbour, this terraced property is in an ideal location from which to explore the beautiful south west coast of Scotland. Boasting a stunning coastline with sandy beaches, rugged shingle beaches, rocky coves and windswept cliffs, the area is a walker’s paradise. The Southern Upland Way passes close by and offers everything from gentle walks to challenging hikes and there are many coastal villages to explore in the area. The town of Stranraer is 6 miles and offers supermarkets, shops, restaurants, pubs and the Castle of St John.
Wildlife is abundant with many unusual species including pine martens, golden eagle, ospreys, red deer, red squirrels and the natterjack toad. At the southern tip of the Rhins Peninsula you will find the RSPB Mull of Galloway Visitor Centre which is well worth a visit, with thousands of nesting sea birds on the cliffs in season.

At the northern tip of the Rhins Peninsula is Corsewall Lighthouse, which has a restaurant and bar. Also worth a visit is Logan Botanic Garden where many tropical species of plants and trees thrive due to the warming influence of the Gulf Stream.
