From the little port-resort of Portpatrick in the Rhins of Galloway, this scenic walk heads south on a moorland byroad and visits the 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.
