We visited the west of Dumfries and Gallowayand stayed in the picturesque town of Portpatrick. Blinkbonnie Guest house was a great place to stay-lovely rooms and great food, welcoming hosts and very handy for the town and visiting the whole area.

We booked a two-night stay at this lovely guesthouse in Portpatrick which was central for a tour of the Rhins. Owners were lovely.. Lovely breakfast. If returning to the Rhins we would definitely make this our base again.

Absolutely beautiful guest house in superb location. Wonderful hosts Fantastic breakfast. Five mins walk from the harbour front. So clean and fresh. Simply couldn't ask for more (other than slightly firmer pillows, but that's just me). Definitely will return

We were welcomed warmly to this lovely guesthouse. We only stayed 1 night but wish it could have been longer as it was everything you could wish for. Very comfortable, very clean and lovely breakfast but more than all this Lesley and her husband and staff were fantastic. Professional but friendly. We will definitely return and would highly recommend Blinkbonnie... More
