This route takes in the most westerly section of the Southern Upland Way. The picture postcard village of Portpatrick is the starting point and the route combines rugged cliffs with rolling countryside. ** Walk fully booked **
From the village harbour the path goes along the cliff top, past the golf course, across Dunskey Glen to Killantringan lighthouse with views to Ireland and the Clyde Estuary. The route then turns inland using roads and tracks passing Craigenlee wind farm and Knockquhassen reservoir.
As Gallowhill is approached the best view of Stranraer and Loch Ryan lies ahead.
A mile through the town leads to the finish at the waterfront where welcome refreshments may be taken.
