The Southern Upland Way Part #5

The concluding part of my journey.  

Harbourmaster's Office. In interesting bit of art deco architecture.

Memorial to those lost on MV Princess Victoria that sank on its way to Ireland in 1953.

Agnew Monument - built in 1850 by public subscription as a token of esteem to the local MP. Not something that people are likely to do these days.

I've now reached the coast. Killantringan Lighthouse.

Old farm machinery

Killantringan Bay

Portamaggie Cottage. Below the lighthouse is this tiny cottage in an impressive location. It sits in a little bay with its own private beach. The cottage was originally a telephone exchange and is available for rent.

Journey's end is at the charming town of Portpatrick.


  1. The Portamaggie cottage sure looks like a nice place to spend a few days away form the hustle and bustle of people.

    1. Yes, it's in a amazing setting. The tiny cottage only sleeps two.
