South West Coastal 300 SWC300 update October 2018
The new version of the SWC300 has been gaining a lot of attention recently with the launch of the new website pages. We have also had a blogger staying with us at Rickwood, Portpatrick who will be writing articles for Scotland Magazine and one of the Sunday Papers. There have also been recent articles in The Herald, The Guardian and Our Wigtownshire.
South West Coastal 300 Update July 2018
Fred has obtained agreement to amend the SWC300 route to continue further up the coast from Mull of Galloway to Alloway near Ayr
The new version will also take in Kirkmichael and Wanlockhead (Scotland’s Highest Village)
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 recently has been helping them to start to establish a route in the South West of Scotland called the South West Coastal 300. SWC300
As the name suggests, the route is about 300 miles (well just over 300 in fact) and takes in much of the coastline 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. Surprisingly, the Route also takes in Scotland`s highest village – Wanlockhead which is in Dumfries & Galloway!
We hope that the new SWC300 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 SWC300 web site photos!
