Relax in the peaceful harbour village of Port William on the coast of Luce Bay in the Machars of Galloway. Port William is a haven for leisure craft as you gaze across the sea to the Isle of Man and Ireland.

Port William is an example of a planned village, lying on the eastern shore of Luce Bay in Galloway, founded by Sir William Maxwell of Monreith in 1770. The harbour, built for the convenience of his tenant farmers was one of the first in western Galloway.

Port William and surrounding area is an ideal holiday area for visitors of all ages with safe beaches, a wide variety of wildlife – animal and floral, quiet roads for walking and cycling, golf, antiquities, wonderful sunsets, and a friendly welcome.

There is a great wealth of history in the vicinity of Port William going back through smuggling, and early Christian sites to the Mesolithic Age.

There is much unspoiled nature to be seen and the local businesses and services can provide for the needs of most visitors.
