The harbour village of Portpatrick in Dumfries and Galloway sits on the western Scottish seaboard and is only a short ferry ride from Northern Ireland. The pretty harbour area and the famous folk festival both attract hundreds of holidaymakers each year, and as a result it is not uncommon for visitors to have accidents that were not their fault and then look for a good lawyer in Portpatrick to help them with their claim.
