Highlights:Logan Botanical Gardens, Guided tour of Belfast, Newton Stewart, Whithorn, Clatteringshaws Loch, Dumfries
On the westernmost shores of the Rhins of Galloway Peninsula, in the south western corner of Scotland, the small seaside resort of Portpatrick lies peacefully overlooking the Irish Sea. Set around a small bay, leading into rugged cliff-top coastlines in each direction, the resort is a cluster of pastel-coloured houses. Out and about, discover the ancient lands of Galloway and we also include a day excursion across the sea to Belfast for a taste of Ireland too!
SUNDAY: From local joining points we travel north to our overnight stop.

MONDAY: Crossing into Scotland we visit the town of Dumfries, the ‘Queen of the South’, synonymous with Scotland’s national Bard, Robert Burns. We then continue to the west coast and to Portpatrick for our four night stay.

TUESDAY: A day at leisure today to enjoy the small resort of Portpatrick.

WEDNESDAY: An early start today to catch the 7.30 ferry from Cairnryan to Belfast. We include breakfast on board before arriving in Belfast and enjoying an informative guided tour by coach of this fascinating city. We then enjoy free time to explore before returning on the mid afternoon ferry in time for dinner back at our hotel.

THURSDAY: A leisurely day exploring the Galloway Peninsulas. First to Logan Botanical Gardens, Scotland’s most exotic garden, warmed by the gulf stream to allow species from around the world to thrive. From here we skirt the shores of Luce Bay and pass the expansive sands of Ringdoo Point to make our way to Whithorn, Scotland’s cradle of Christianity dating back to the 5th Century. Nowadays it is a haven for artists and crafts people.

FRIDAY: Leaving Portpatrick this morning we head to Newton Stewart, a hidden gem at the gateway to the Galloway Hills before entering Galloway Forest Park. Here keep your eyes peeled as Red and Roe deer can be spotted along with soaring birds of prey, before we pause by the shores of the expansive Clatteringshaws Loch. From here we continue to our overnight stop in the north of England.

SATURDAY: Today we return homeward.
