Stranraer

Stranraer

This fascinating, historical town is often remembered as a ferry port, connecting Northern Ireland and Scotland. Today the town has a new reputation, as a travel destination with many interesting attractions to visit as well as places of historical interest. Stranraer is fortunately located on the sparkling shores of Loch Ryan within Inch in idyllic Wigtownshire on the west coast of Dumfries and Galloway. An ideal position for exploring the majestic Scottish Borders region, with easy access to both Glasgow, Edinburgh and the North of England as well as down south to the picturesque Mull of Galloway. There are also four nearby golf courses to test your mettle against, whisky distilleries to visit and boat tours around the coastline for visitors to enjoy.

We love Stranraer because...

  • Ferry access to Northern Ireland
  • Loch-side location
  • Golf courses nearby
