If you're after a relaxing Scottish seaside holiday, you can't go wrong in pretty Portpatrick, on the Rhins of Galloway peninsula coast. Once a bustling port for travelling to and from Northern Ireland, these days it's a place to enjoy the attractive pastel houses, lovely bay and its backdrop of imposing cliffs. Fishing is popular here, or opt for a walk in the stunning countryside. The Southern Upland Way begins in Portpatrick, continuing for just over 210 miles to the east coast and the town of Cockburnspath. Local sights include Dunskey Castle and its magnificent ruins perch on rocks jutting into the Irish Sea.
