bed and breakfast Hawthorn House - Port William

Tim & Hilary Pavitt, Hawthorn House Bed & Breakfast, Main Street, Port William DG8 9QP Tel: 01988 700989   email  Hawthorn House website

Hawthorn House Situated on the north end of the coast road at Port William, there are unrestricted views over Luce Bay onto the Mull of Galloway.  This area has always been a favourite for birdwatching.

A variety of local well-used bird watching sites include pebble beach, coastal cliffs and shingle, maritime heath and low scrub, rocky shore and broad-leaved woodland, saltmarsh, mudflats and sandflats and freshwater wetland.

The best birdwatching in this part of Wigtownshire is along the rocky coastline and across the mudflats and saltmarshes of Wigtown Bay.

A visit to Wigtown County Buildings Camera Room will let you view the recently returned Ospreys and their chicks. This is the first pair of Ospreys in Galloway for over 100 years.
