From the little port-resort of Portpatrick in the Rhins of Galloway, this scenic walk heads south on a moorland byroad and visits a secluded seaside hotel at Knockinaam, where refreshments are available, then returns past the ruinous Dunskey Castle in its dramatic clifftop setting. The coastal scenery, together with birdlife and flowers a-plenty, make this a walk to remember.
