Portpatrick village is on the extreme south-westerly tip of mainland, cut into a cleft in steep cliffs. Anciently known as Portrie (Port Rhin), it's quay was protected by baron of Dunskey (Dun=Castle Key=Quay) Castle and his local men. When being invaded, the fishermen and their families probably scrambled up the cliffs to Dunskey for protection.
Dating back some 700 years and built adjacent to the ruins of nearby Dunskey Castle, Port Patrick village's position on the Rhins of Galloway affords visitors views of the Northern Irish coast to the west, with clifftop walks and beaches both north and south. The Gulf Stream, flowing in from the north, gives the coastline a pleasant climate, in which subtropical plant life can flourish.

A very beautiful image with a glorious sunset.
The lighthouse nicely placed against he bright orange glow.
Great composition and f/g interest and those dark clouds add to the overall appeal.
