Date of Visit: June 2007 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Jennygirlx 5 reviews from this member

 Visited with 2 units for a weekend (first time for parents in their folding caravan!).
Site is in a cracking location, just outside town (reached by a clifftop walk, not as scary as it sounds!) and overlooking the Irish sea- we could see lights across the water.
The site has mainly statics and some seasonal tourers, with all grass pitches for tents and tourers. You do get the best views of the castle and sea but is not sheltered as you can†imagine!
The reception is some way onto the site, and has the best shop I've ever seen on a campsite,†it is licenced and sells cigarettes, but no papers unfortunately! It is also reasonably priced and sells some local produce.
Toilets and showers as other reviewers have said are a little dated but very clean and warm, also the wash up facilities are unusual in that they are inside with 2 stone sinks and no drainer- one of us had to wash up and literally pass the pots out in to the corridor for the other to dry! Plenty of hot water though, and the pressure in the showers was excellent. One of the regulars did say once the water runs out it takes a while to heat back up though but we never had a problem.
There is also a play area for children (well away from the cliffs) and the shop hires out video's.
A bracing weekend, this sites well worth a visit for the dramatic views over Dunsky Castle alone!

 I can only agree with the previous review in terms of location, the walk to town and the veiws all wonderful. However the site looks in need of some TLC, which considering this is the beginning of the holiday season was a shame. Toilet & shower block were very small making life difficult with small children. The wash up area has two sinks, but only enough space for one person to stand & no draining board. The toilet block and bin area could have been attended to more often. The location though, spectacular.

 Stunning location. Pitched tent with a view of the Dunskey castle only a few hundred yards away. Although the facilities are basic they are kept clean. Toilet block, kids play area, disposal point, shop and small amusement room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Large area for tents and tourers with some electric hook ups. Not all on the level. Pub on adjacent camp site open to non residents.

Walk (less than a mile) along the coastal path to Portpatrick with beautiful views. Portpatrick has several pubs/hotels, great food, live music at the weekend some of which is noisy, some more folky, shops, restaurant, lovely harbour. Lots of walking, boating and fishing. Southern Upland Way starts here.

Local attractions include Mull of Galloway lighthouse/visitor centre, various gardens. Port Logan, where they filmed 2000 acres of sky. They also used Portpatrick and Dunskey Castle.this whole area is one of Scotlands best kept secrets.

Plan to return to this site.had a great weekend

Reviewer: Feeblecat 42 reviews from this member

 Have visited this site often and it is one of our favourites. Great location, tourers and tents look over the cliff onto the sea. Lovely walk into the village where there are good pubs and restaurants. Very picturesque. Nice friendly staff. Facilities are basic but clean and shop sells essentials. Book at peak times though.
