Route Description
A waymarked cliff top walk, steep in places. Start at the Southern Upland Way information shelter at the north side of Portpatrick harbour. Return to Portpatrick by the same route, or along the lighthouse road to the A764, turning right and walking as far as the junction with the A77, turning right to return to Portpatrick. Killantringan Bay to the north of the lighthouse is one of the finest (and least visited) beaches in Galloway.
