A Rich History

From the time our family acquired the land in the late 17th century, we have poured our hearts into nurturing the estate as well as the surrounding village of Portpatrick. Over the centuries, the preservation of original materials and landmarks has taken priority. Now, we proudly boast impeccably maintained grounds and an early 20th century castle that retains many of its original period features.
