Understand

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 three 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.

However, the lanes and paths around the village are well worth exploring on foot, by car or bicycle. A good coastal path, the Mull of Galloway Trail, was opened in 2012 which goes from the Mull of Galloway to Stranraer to join the Loch Ryan coastal path, and beyond.
