Sculpture, Port William

A harbour village of the western Machars, Dumfries and Galloway, Port William lies on the Killantrae Burn which here flows into Luce Bay, 11 miles (17 km) southwest of Wigtown. Largely remodelled as a planned village in the 1770s by Sir William Maxwell of Monreith, after whom it is named, its harbour was originally built for trading ships. Today the harbour is frequented by fishing boats and pleasure craft.
