For nature watch lovers both botanists and bird watchers will be delighted by the variety of wildlife to be found both on land and sea. Badgers, deer and foxes are occasionally seen close by. A visit to the nearby Burrow Head will take you back to the famous closing scenes of the cult film The Wickerman which was shot at nearby Burrow Head which is on the route to the Isle of Whithorn. Don’t worry if you miss the ferry you can always walk across! Cycling is a real pleasure on these quiet picturesque roads but if you fancy trying something a lot more adventurous then head eastwards for a great choice of 7Stanes venues for some world class mountain biking. Don’t forget to find Port William’s best known citizen who always looks out to sea!
