Cairn Pat (Hillfort) — Miscellaneous

Directions to Cairn Pat Hillfort:
Take the A77 heading S out of Stranraer. Turn right for Portpatrick c. 1.5 miles from Stranraer. Stay on the A77 through Lochans for c. 2 miles to reach a concrete road signed as a Path to Cairnpat. You can drive c. 0.3 miles up the road to park at a water tank. The road deteriorates from here, so it is advisable to walk the final 0.5 miles N to Cairn Pat Hillfort.

I love to travel, especially to antiquarian sites. I'm working through the extensive Cornwall site list with an annual week holiday. Avebury is my favourite spiritual destination. Las Vegas is my favourite sinful destination.

I also enjoy hill climbing however as time passes the hills grow steeper. I have climbed around 30 munros, however, I've also climbed The Cobbler, Stac Pollaidh and Suilven so height is not the only criteria.

I used to play golf (9 handicap) and support Queen of the South however I gave up both bad habits. Horse racing was a more recent obsession. Epsom and Newmarket are my favourite racecourses. At the moment my current obsession is music gigs: Arcade Fire, Dinosaur Jr, Sparks, Jesus and Mary Chain and Belle & Sebastian, my favourite band.
