Logan Fish Pond near Portpatrick reopens 29 May

We are delighted that Logan Fish Pond – always a popular attraction for our visitors at Rickwood House B&B is to re-open this summer on 29 May

Unfortunately, in recent years, Logan Fish Pond has not been open on a regular basis for various reasons and sadly, some of our guests have been disappointed at not having been able to visit this unique attraction.

The new tenant is keen to ensure that Logan Fish Pond is restored to its former glory and for this reason it will be late May before it re-opens for visitors.

Logan Fish Pond is situated in Port Logan Bay between the village itself and Logan Botanic Garden. The history of this unique attraction dates all the way back to 1788 when the Laird of Logan created a fish larder for Logan House. The pond was complete by 1800. The water is filtered naturally by the tides twice a day. Fish were bought locally from fishermen and the pond was used as a larder for the live fish. The gatehouse which is believed to have been built at the same time as the pond is an attractive feature.

A visit to Logan Fish Pond can easily be combined with Logan Botanic Garden or Logan House Garden, both of which are nearby. Scotland`s most southerly point – The Mull of Galloway, Scotland`s most southerly point is only a few miles away from Logan Fish Pond.
