Port Logan

 
Home » Town/Village » Port Logan

Port Logan – is a delightful village in a sheltered and sandy bay on the west coast of the Rhins of Galloway. It is south of Portpatrick and just to the north of the Mull of Galloway – Scotland`s Lands End. Port Logan was the main location for the BBC series 2000 Acres of Sky. Moore recently, Port Logan Harbour was a location for the film Keepers starring Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan.

Port Logan – Telford`s Bell Tower

Port Logan has a most interesting harbour. The Bell Tower at the end of the harbour was designed by Thomas Telford who is better known for designing bridges and canals such as the Caledonian Canal.

The harbour area is popular with owners of small boats and fishermen. It can be fascinating watching the boats being launched and towed up the beach.

Port Logan has a long sandy beach with the harbour at one end and Logan Fish Pond at the other. Logan Fish Pond is a natural rock pool in which there are many species of fish and other marine creatures. The pond was at one time a larder for nearby Logan House. Logan Fish Pond is open to the public (admission charges apply) and is a popular family attraction.

Coffee and Ice Cream are available from a retro van called Cool Licks and Hot Drinks which operates on a seasonal basis from a car park as you enter the village. There are no permanent cafes or tea rooms in the village itself however the car park near the harbour makes a perfect picnic spot. A mile or so inland is the renowned Logan Botanic Garden where the excellent Potting Shed Bistro serves light meals, coffee, tea etc and home baking. The bistro is within Logan Botanic Garden.  During the main season, admission fees for the garden need to be paid to access the bistro.

Logan Botanic Garden is a 5 star Visit Scotland attraction and is rightly described as Scotland`s Most Exotic Garden.

Logan House Gardens are also nearby and and open to the public.

An interesting alternative way to reach Port Logan and getting a bit of exercise at the same time is by taking a mini coast to coast walk!  The walk from New England Bay on the east coast of the Rhins of Galloway to Port Logan which is on the west coast. It only takes about 90 minutes return along quiet minor roads and there are great views along the way.
