4th comment: Oh this was out of this world! Stunning accommodation and views over Portpatrick. Everything about this property and location was first class.We were greeted on arrival and shown around the property by Mrs Moffatt(a lovely lady) which was a lovely touch. Mr and Mrs Moffatt own a spectacular house and well kept tranquil gardens in one of the most scenic and beautiful areas of Scotland. The local bars and restaurants are both friendly and serve excellent food and cater for large parties. We will be back! Aug 2011.

6th comment: Portpatrick is a beautiful place to stay with wonderful views of the sea. It’s quite quiet during the week but truly comes alive at the weekend. There are a number of lovely shops to wander around, some lovely walks and at least 6 eateries to choose from. The house was v comfortable and the owners are on hand for any problems. Would recommend!! July 2011.
