The wife and I have bought a static caravan at Portpatrick, looking forward to exploring the area this summer. Will be starting off exploring here....

Portpatrick is a lovely spot to head to. Lots to see and do (in a low key sort of way :) ).

A nearby lighthouse

I was briefly in Portpatrick a few weeks ago. Lovely place, I must say, and would be just the thing in the summer.

Remember Coo Palace?

Looks like it might just have been saved:

Some entrepreneur has bought the harbour and sent a minnion to collect £8 for parking the boat while we went for fish suppers, he didnae get it! Chippie on the harbour excellent.

The good news is that the harbour has been bought back from the entrepreneur and is now community owned. There is no bad news :)
