Clashwhannon caravan park stands within the southern part of the Rhins at Drummore. The Rhins is an area of rugged coastline, quiet beaches, woodlands and rolling hills.
Surrounded by water on three sides, the feel is more like living on an island. There is an added bonus in that the Gulf Stream flows right past the Rhins, giving us a mild, warm climate, a fact not lost on the horticultural world! Close at hand you will find the award winning RHS Botanic Garden at Logan, with the Logan House gardens next door to that.
Glenwhan Gardens at Dunragit is also well worth a visit with its garden paths, lochs and fascinating collection of unusual species. If you enjoy a round or three of golf, you will be more than well catered for – the Rhins offers no less than four golf courses! Stranraer Golf Course on the west shore of Loch Ryan, Lagganmore just outside Portpatrick, and Dunskey and Portpatrick Golf Course on the western side of the Rhins at the lovely village of Portpatrick.
Galloway is renown for its good local produce, and there are many places to eat out to suit all pockets, from haute-cuisine to take-away in a wide range of styles and cultures. Locally the area offers horse riding, mountain biking, great coastal walks, fishing, a safe and long beach at Sandhead, Scotland’s most southerly point at the Mull of Galloway, and friendly villages. Every summer Luce Bay hosts the annual Sharkatag, run by the SSACN. The event is a huge angling trip to catch, tag and release as many Tope (local shark species) as possible.
Please note, the harbour at Drummore is currently unused and very silted, not recommended as an anchorage! Tide times given for information purposes for beach combers and coastal walkers. The map below (give time to load on rural and small town broadband connections…..) shows where we are.
