Drummore is in Dumfries and Galloway, South West (Scotland).

Understand[edit]

Drummore is a village at the southern end of the South Rhins of Galloway, in South West Scotland and is the southernmost village in Scotland. Although it has a population of fewer than 400, the village has two public houses, a café and several bed and breakfast establishments, as well as many self-catering holiday cottages, a general store and Scotland's most southerly post office. A mainly farming area, there are several beautiful beaches, some sandy, a picnic area and a harbour with a few fishing and leisure boats. The local people, despite being known by some as 'Drummorons', are in fact very friendly and helpful.

Get in[edit]

By road[edit]

From the north: A77/A716 via Stranraer; 17 miles. From the west: A75/B7084/A716.

By bus[edit]

Service 407 [1] from Stranraer, Monday to Saturday only. Journey time about 45 minutes.

Get around[edit]

With only two main streets, a shore road and a harbour, Drummore will take you all of 20 minutes to walk round. However, the lanes and paths around the village are well worth exploring on foot, by car or bicycle. The 'Mull of Galloway Trail' stretches for 24 miles from the Mull of Galloway to Stranraer to join the Loch Ryan coastal path, and beyond. A circular path is planned for the future which will enable walkers to access the more rugged western coast of the peninsula.
