Port Logan - Dumfries & Galloway

A place to escape to.  A place to relax.  A magical place where memories are made. 

The south west coastline of Scotland offers an incredibly faraway feel while remaining very accessible to much of Scotland, northern England and Ireland.  Many of our visitors liken the atmosphere of our little peninsula, called The Rhins of Galloway, to an island.  We are surrounded by sandy beaches and the sound of waves is ever in the background, while huge expanses of sea and sky captivate the eye and refresh the soul.

After a few days of perfect relaxation in their holiday cottage most of our visitors take time to explore the activities and attractions in the surrounding areas, and there is perhaps a surprising amount of things to do and see in this tranquil corner of Scotland.

Journey down to the south western tip of Scotland to discover The Mull of Galloway to see the tall lighthouse standing guard above the rocky cliffs below. The Mull of Galloway is also an RSPB nature reserve and in Spring the cliffs come alive with the sounds of seabirds scrambling for the best nesting sites.  Climb the lighthouse, which is open at weekends from March to October, to enjoy fantastic views. 

The gently warming winds of the Gulf Stream wash over this part of Scotland and Galloway is filled with spectacular and colourful gardens. Perhaps none of them are quite as unusual as Logan Botanic Garden, Scotland’s most exotic garden which specialises in plants from the southern hemisphere.  Other nearby gardens to visit include Ardwell Gardens, Dunskey Gardens, Castle Kennedy and Glenwhan Gardens.

This is a part of the world made for creating special childhood memories of family holidays and there is a wealth of places for children to explore.  Give them the gift of freedom to enjoy the simple pleasures of the outdoors, from beaches to the trails, pools, mountains, bike trails, art and wildlife of the Galloway Forest Park.  Or discover visitor centres which encourage children to enjoy and appreciate the world around them, like the Port Logan Fish Pond, Creetown Gem Rock Museum and Cream o’ Galloway, all perfectly suited to the young and the young at heart.

History has left its mark on our landscape through massive monuments, towering castles, ruined abbeys and places of pilgrimage.  Uncovering the stories of our history in Galloway takes you to some fascinating places.  The archaeological discoveries at The Whithorn Story, beautiful Glenluce Abbey, visited by many of Scotland’s most influential figures, the standing stones of Cairnholy, the imposing Cardoness Castle, a monument to the Wigtown Martyrs and the stone that supported a weary Robert the Bruce in 1307 high up in the Galloway Hills.

If enjoying the great outdoors is high on your list of priorities then a holiday with Kirkbride Holiday Cottages gives you the perfect location from which to indulge your passions.  With ample opportunities for walking, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, fishing, sea angling, golf, astronomy, photography, bird watching, wildlife watching and more, your luxury break with us can be as active or as relaxing as you wish!

Whatever you enjoy doing on your holiday we’ll help make your stay with us special and filled with wonderful memories to take home.
