Where to Eat

All of our self catering cottages come with fully equipped kitchens, but we know that everyone deserves at least one night off, especially on their holidays. We have added a selection of local restaurants and cafes to the list and map below. Please feel free to ask us about any of the local establishments, listed or not.

  • The Blue Peter Pub in Kirkcolm is very handy for the cottages.  Under new ownership, the pub serves good pub grub and also does great take away fish and chips – a ‘must eat’ while on holiday by the coast!
  • Connor’s in Portpatrick serves superb seafood and comes highly recommended
  • Tigh na Mara in Sandhead has an extensive menu and is reasonably priced
  • Michelin listed Knockinaam Lodge near Portpatrick is unrivalled in the area
  • Glenapp Castle offers a first class fine dining experience and is also Michelin listed
  • The Old Colfin Creamery – a fabulous cafe and bistro just outside Portpatrick, which is open for dinner on Friday and Saturdays
  • The Fig and Olive – a wonderful cafe in Stranraer, which serves excellent lunches and baking and brings a touch of Oz to south west Scotland.
  • Wildings – well worth the hour’s drive up the coast to Maidens up the Ayrshire coast
  • The Bay House Restaurant – recently refurbished – offers quality food with great views up Loch Ryan and over Corsewall Estate.
