Galloway Point Holiday Park is situated less than a mile from the popular and unspoilt coastal village of Portpatrick, in the south west corner of Scotland. Overlooking the Irish Sea, the Park enjoys panoramic views, taking in the distant Mountains of Mourne.
Galloway Point is a quiet and peaceful site in which to relax. Our emphasis is on quality facilities and we have extensively refurbished areas of the park, while maintaining it”s inherent natural beauty. The combination of a well appointed site with appealing scenery makes Galloway Point Holiday Park an attractive haven for visitors, particularly in Spring and early summer when the flora is in full bloom.

Deriving its name from the patron saint of Ireland, who reputedly sailed to the Emerald Isle from here, Portpatrick is one of the most picturesque ports in Scotland. The harbour is still the focal point of the village, sustaining a small fishing industry whilst it is also used to moor recreational craft. Sea angling is a popular pastime with many visitors, and there is also the opportunity to try river and loch fishing. If you enjoy smoked produce, visit the Colfin Smokehouse, about three miles away, for a real taste of Scotland.
Dumfries and Galloway has lots to offer families with some excellent places to visit that are fun for parents and children alike.
The surrounding area is a gardeners dream. Since the climate is influenced by the Gulf Stream, there are several renowned gardens nearby. These include Castle Kennedy, Ardwell, Glenwhan and possibly the best known, Logan Botanical Gardens which exhibits many exotic trees and plants.
- plenty of activities for the kids

what a lovely site, great views over the Irish sea and a nice wee walk down the cliffs to Portpatrick.It is a wee bit of a trek to the toilet block but it was spotless as you need a key to access it. The site owners are putting a lot of effort into this site and it shows. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be back as it's such a lovely part of the country to visit.

We toured around Scotland for 4 weeks in August and were highly recommended to visit here- what an utter disappointment!
The site was full of litter with overflowing garbage bins and the so called luxury toilet block- urgh what a ghastly place full of old diapers and someone washing their dog in the shower block. And speaking of dogs- the site is full of them and their "mess" too- we even seen a pile of poop beside a notice stating owners had to pick up their dog mess!
Port Patrick- yeah its "quaint" but the locals are very unfriendly and Saturday evenings are just one long drinking session and so much profanity and crude language- typically what the Brits now do best! Avoid at all cost unless you want a dirty disorganised holiday experience- there are far better sites further along the coast- unspoilt gems if you take the time to seek out as we did after leaving early!

We first visited this park as campers back in 2005 and we liked it. Despite it,s primative amenities.We have just made the return trip with our touring caravan and were pleasantly surprised.Under new ownership the toilet and shower block has been fully refurbished into a modern state of thew art facility.The park is well laid out with a fine mixture of statics,tourers and tents dotted around the place.My only complaint is if you are pitched on the site just above Dunsky Castle,as we were, then you have long walk down to the toilets.There is certainly scope for the owners to build a small shower/toilet block in this area of the site.However we were well placed for the clifftop stroll down into Portpatrick which is an absolute gem. With its friendly pubs and resturants.The way back requires a little more energy than the way there.However our dog Molly did,nt seem to mind.Other places to visit would be The Mull of Galloway Lighthouse .Famed for it,s breathtaking views and it,s delicious ice cream.Port Logan is also worth the ten mile drive where, on a good day ,it,s nice to sit outside the Inn sipping a beer whilst taking in the beautiful sweeping bay.This definitely one of Scotland,s most scenic and laid back holiday spots.I will definitly return and would have no hesitation in chosing Galloway Point to hitch up.
