Portpatrick Travel guide
Portpatrick : Michelin's recommendations
This popular west coast port is the peninsula's biggest settlement. Houses overlook the small harbour, which before steamboats came into service was the terminal for crossings to Ireland. A major public footpath, the Southern Upland Way, connects Portpatrick to Cockburnspath, on the east coast.
