The small village of Portpatrick is built around a lovely harbour backed by a row of attractively painted houses and numerous pubs where you can sit back, people watch, and observe the fishing boats coming in and out. There is a small beach within the harbour that is popular with families and myriad quirky shops in the passageways to the rear where you can pick up great souvenirs of your trip.
