A treasure map with clues written by Phil Mapockets, a legendary 19th century salvage expert, has recently been discovered. History tells that bullion from one of the many shipwrecks off Portpatrick was smuggled on-shore by Phil, never to be heard of again. Could these be the clues to finding it? If you can solve the clues you could win a prize!
Portpatrick is a village hanging on to the extreme south-westerly tip of mainland Scotland, cut into a cleft in steep cliffs. Dating back historically some 500 years, its position on the Rhins of Galloway affords visitors views of the Northern Ireland 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.
Today the village retains a fleet of fishing craft, and a lifeboat is still stationed in Portpatrick. There are bowls clubs, a very active golf club (Dunskey), many guesthouses and hotels. A walk along the cliff pathway to Dunskey Castle is highly recommended.
This Walking Treasure Trail is about 1.5 miles long and should take approximately 1.5 hours to complete. Unfortunately it is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs as it includes steep areas and stepped pathways.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Clue 3 was rather clever and kept us occupied for a while! Clue 6 I walked over several times until the penny dropped.
