Another must see if your in the area!
This ruin is tucked away and looks as if it's in someone's back garden but it's not. Accessible to the public and a little piece of history that simply must be seen

Although this is just a shell of the old 17th century church, built on the site of a 16th century one, it is intriguing to discover its history as a lighthouse and a "Gretna Green " for the Irish in the 17th century

Stumbled across this by accident - looked like it was part of someone's back yard .
Track it down if you are in portpatrick - worth a 5 min detour - peaceful spot.

Unsignposted, just off the main road in Portpatrick, this ruined church with its associated cemetery is fascinating. An old tower had the rest of the church attached to it at some time. The tower still stands reasonably complete, while the roof of the nave has collapsed in. The tower is circular - it could well have been a lighthouse for the port when it was first built.

Well worth having a quick look around.
