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.

    Converted from the former stables of Auchenbrae House, this detached, single storey holiday cottage has been well laid out and is very cosy. The kitchen and lounge are open plan, making it light and airy and from here, the stable door opens out onto a small courtyard with views of Luce Bay in the distance, and on a clear day, the Isle of Man. A short stroll from the property takes you to the bay and a delightful country pub and restaurant. There is also a cliff path walk from which you may spot seals, otters or porpoises. A few minutes away by car is Glenluce, where there is a local shop, pubs and hotels providing meals.
