Find cottages in Stranraer

Stranraer is a characterful, bustling coastal port, situated on the sheltered shores of Loch Ryan and is the gateway to the Rhins of Galloway.

There is plenty to do in this beautiful part of South West Scotland. The nearby Southern Upland Way offers some of the best unspoilt scenic walking in the country and there are several well marked shorter walks available taking in pretty towns and villages along the way. For days out by car travel north along the coast road towards Ayrshire or head east to explore Galloway, Dumfries, Galloway Forest Park and the Solway Firth.

A trip to the ship-shaped Castle of St. John is a must and on a clear day you can see as far as the distant mountains of Arran from the roof. The pretty streets in the town centre have plenty of shops and boutiques, and there is no shortage of dining option, from quaint tearooms to restaurant serving the finest Scottish cuisine.

The quintessentially Scottish harbour side is surrounded by charming pastel coloured cottages, and is still home to plenty of traditional fishing craft. A short stroll along the sea front will bring you to Agnew Park, which is a child-friendly destination full of activities, including crazy golf and a fantastic miniature railway. The town is also home to a popular local theatre and cinema. Nature lovers should head to the RSPB reserve at Wig Bay, which is just a short and extremely scenic route to the north. This is home to a huge variety of birdlife.

    Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, adjacent to Corsewall House, there are lots of walks around the estate and down to the sea you can enjoy. Garden Cottage (ref 30810) forms the west wing of the 18th-century Corsewall House and has wonderful sea views across Loch Ryan. High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) is a traditional, detached, Galloway farmhouse, built in the local vernacular style of south west Scotland and entirely surrounded by open farmland. Stables Cottage (ref 30812) is in the heart of Corsewall Estate, surrounded by historic woodland and overlooking an extensive walled kitchen garden. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas – pinks, reds, creams, yellows, purples and white – come into flower. Indeed, one of our rhododendron, known as Christmas cheer, comes out in mid December. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November. There is oodles of wildlife to spot from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. The cottage comes complete with its own red squirrel feeder, where guests can watch any number of cheeky red squirrels feeding ferociously all day. The owners record spotted at one of the feeders is currently six. Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and The Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From a historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – evidence can be seen of this on a walk along the bay and also throughout the woods at Corsewall Estate, which was requisitioned by the Royal Canadian Air Force during the War. The Galloway coastline offers an abundance of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore. Boat Bank is within a 1 mile walk of Stables Cottage (ref 30812) and Garden Cottage (ref 30810), while Port Beg is within 1 mile of High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) accessed via road. Both beaches are perfect for picnics. Walking, golf, sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking water sports and cycling are all available nearby. There are several beautiful gardens including Logan Botanical which benefits from the mild climate of the Gulf Stream. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 4 miles.

    Stairs to entrance. All on first floor: Living room with wooden floor/kitchen with Velux. 2 bedrooms: 1 double (5ft), 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.
