Helensdale is 3.5 miles from Drummore and about 3 miles from the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse - the most southerly point in Scotland! Here you feel as if you are on the edge of the earth and sometimes the only company is the variety of seabirds that inhabit these cliffs. There is also a rspb bird information centre with webcam to nesting areas and seal breeding areas

 It is located on a peninsula which has a varying and enchanting range of coastal features from sandy beaches on the East coast to a variety of cliffs, rocks and sandy coves on the West. The most famous of which are the delightful village of Portlogan (the location of 2000 acres of Sky) and the picturesque fishing village of Portpatrick.

The climate here is warmed by the Gulf Stream and this area is renowned for its gardens. there are plenty to choose from the polished perfection of Logan Botanic Gardens with the Potting Shed Bistro - ideal for a spot of lunch or just a coffee and some home baking. To a variety of more casual gardens - Logan House, Ardwell, Castle Kennedy and Dunskey (These are all mansions with splendid gardens that are open to the public) and Glenwhan (which was carved out of the hillside by the present owners about 20 years ago).

This area is a haven for walkers and nature lovers. The Southern Upland Way starts in Portpatrick and crosses Scotland to the East Coast near Berwick. It provides a variety of easily accessible paths both coastal and moorland. There is also a newly completed coastal path from Loch Ryan(Stranraer) in the north to Mull of Galloway in the south for this peninsula. For the more adverturous you can just check the Land Ranger Map and set off!

There are 4 Golf Courses and a driving range within a 30 minute drive - all with coastal locations and all open to visitors.

Stranraer is the nearest town with 3 supermarkets (Villages of Drummore and Sandhead have well stocked village shops and pubs/restaurant). Stranraer also has an indoor swimming pool, with flumes and children's play area if the weather is not good.

If you want a day trip to Ireland you can sail from Cairnryan to Belfast with Sealink or to Larne with P&O.

Galloway Forest Park with its 7stanes Mountain bike trail (bikes can be hired there) and the Galloway Hills provide a good day out if you want a change from "coastal"

Helensdale is an ideal choice for either couples or families who just want to get away from it all! It also provides an excellent base for visiting the many local attractions, and then returning to the quiet coastal haven. The surrounding countryside is peaceful - you will often see more animals than people and more boats in the channel than cars. At night there is a dark sky and often the nearest lights are Belfast - 18 miles over the sea!
