Find cottages in StranraerVisit 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.

Come and discover the wild beauty of south west Scotland; search for cottages in Stranraer today.
