South West Coastal 300

Many of you will have heard of the North Coast 500 route in the North of Scotland. The route has become more and more popular.

Fred has been a committee member of Visit South West Scotland for several years and has been helping them to start to establish a route in the South West of Scotland called the South West Coastal 300.

As the name suggests, the route is about 300 miles (well just over 300 in fact) and takes in much of the  coast of Dumfries & Galloway then heads up the Ayrshire coast as far as Girvan before turning inland. The route takes in much of the stunning coastal scenery near Portpatrick including the Mull of Galloway, the South Rhins of Galloway and the Machars.  Nearby villages on the route include (of course) Portpatrick and Isle of Whithorn.

We hope that the new route will be a great success for South West Scotland  and wish Visit South West Scotland luck with their project

Our car has even featured in some of the web site photos

How Portpatrick looked in 1932 or thereabouts- nice to see so many at the beach. Sand still looking good today.
