Port Logan | Dumfries and Galloway

Port Logan is a gorgeous village, sheltered in a bay on the west coast Scotland. South of Portpatrick and north of the Mull of Galloway, it was the location for the BBC series 2000 Acres of Sky. More recently, it appeared in the film Keepers starring Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan.

This beautiful harbour town is popular with owners of small boats and fishermen. At the end of the harbour, you can see the bell tower designed by Thomas Telford. He is most famous for designing bridges and canals like the Caledonian Canal.

Port Logan’s long sandy beach has the harbour at one end and Logan Fish Pond at the other. Logan Fish Pond is a natural rock pool that contains many fish and marine species. It is a popular family attraction. And it was once a larder for nearby Logan House before the advent of fridges and freezers.

During your visit, why not treat yourself to a coffee or an ice cream from the retro van Cool Licks and Hot Drinks? There are no permanent cafes in the village but the car park near the harbour makes a perfect picnic spot.

A mile or so inland is the famous Logan Botanic Garden, this 5 star Visit Scotland attraction is Scotland’s Most Exotic Garden. It’s is also home to the excellent Potting Shed Bistro which serves light meals, drinks and home baking.  

A novel way to reach Port Logan and is to take a mini coast to coast walk! From New England Bay on the east of the Rhins of Galloway to Port Logan on the west. It only takes about 90 minutes there and back along quiet minor roads and there are great views along the way.
