NX0940 : Port Logan Pier

taken 15 years ago, near to Port Logan, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Port Logan Pier
Port Logan Pier
The harbour wall on Port Logan Pier is a feast of texture and colour.

The harbour is a natural feature, and forms a small sandy bay.

The pier runs SW to NE, about dead centre of this grid square.

Port Logan achieved some fame through being featured in some TV programme or other, but remains a quiet and unspoiled place. Picnic tables are available here by the sands, offering a great view of the ancient harbour wall.

Nearby feature: Logan Fish Pond
In 1800 Colonel Andrew MacDouall created the Logan Fishpond, on the north side of the bay. This is a circular pool, into which the sea washes at every tide through a narrow crevice, and then washed out again refreshing the water left behind. It was used to keep cod for the table at Logan House but today it is a marine centre.
