PORT LOGAN

By john short  
In 1820 the same Colonel MacDouall built the stone pier at Port Logan in an attempt to make a safe harbour to rival Portpatrick but the trade did not materialise and Port Logan remained a small fishing village, at one time housing the local lifeboat which was hauled between Port Logan and New England Bay.

Perhaps the most famous local attraction is the Logan Botanic Gardens, where the visitor can see rows of Chusan palms from China, huge tree ferns and Cabbage palms, all growing outside, in the mild climate, courtesy of the Gulf Stream.
