Portpatrick is a village on the south west coast of Scotland in an area best known for excellent walking and great gardens. At the nearby Glen Trool Forest Park, you'll get a clear view of the sky unspoiled by artificial light.
Other local attractions include Burns Cottage, Culzean Castle, Logan Botanic Gardens, Dunskey Golf Course and the Mull of Galloway with its views to the Isle of Man.
You can see Ireland on a clear day and it is an easy crossing over to Belfast or Larne from nearby Stranraer - a great option if you want to sample something a bit different during your stay.
