Port William Cottages
Dubbed 'Scottish Village of the Year' in 2008, Port William is a proud and welcoming village on Scotland's dramatic Atlantic Coast. Should you rent a cottage in Port William, you'll be made to feel extremely welcome; the residents here - though vehemently proud of their village - are happy to share it with visitors, something which lead Port William to be named Scotland's "most vibrant" village in 2007.
Thanks to its location on Scotland's wild Atlantic seaboard, Port William is perfect for coastal holidays. The village has a proud fishing heritage, with a once bustling harbour and bronze statue of a fisherman on the seafront. Take a walk along Port William's shoreline on a clear day, and both the Isle of Man and Ireland are visible thanks to the village's south easterly aspect - don't forget the camera!
