Other accommodation near Stranraer

Sitting on the shores of Loch Ryan on the northern side of the isthmus joining the Rhins of Galloway to the mainland, is the town of Stranraer, the administrative centre for the West Galloway area of Dumfries and Galloway. Stranraer is best known as the ferry port to connect Scotland with Northern Ireland's Belfast, however it is fast gaining a reputation as one of the best vacation spots for culture, history and scenery.

One of the most famous and historical sites to visit in Stranraer is the Castle of St. John, a medieval tower house built in around 1500 by the Adairs of Kilhilt. The Castle has been used as a multitude of things, from a home, to a court, to a prison and, during the Killing Times of the 1680s, a military garrison. After a refurbishment in the 1980s the castle now stands as a museum, showcasing some of the artefacts and documents that have been used in its long and varied history.

Another building to have enjoyed a refurbishment as a museum is the old Town Hall, built in 1776. The Town Hall currently houses Stranraer Museum, displaying Victorian Wigtownshire and the town's polar explorers Sir. John Rodd and James Clark Ross.

Nearby you can visit the Castle Kennedy Gardens, a part of the Stair Estates. As this area of Scotland is surrounded on three sides by the sea, the influence of the Gulf Stream provides a microclimate that allows unusual wildlife to flourish. The gardens are landscaped with terraces, mounds and avenues and extend over more than thirty hectares and are definitely the place to go to take some time out to relax. Another nearby delight is the town of Wigtown, Scotland's national book town, with quirky streets and an amazing array of bookshops, Wigtown is full of charm.

Stranraer itself hosts a multitude of fabulous shops both well known and independent. The nightlife is friendly and vibrant and the host of pubs, clubs, restaurants and bistros ensure there is plenty to do even in the small hours of the morning. Stranraer also offers fabulously rated accommodation choices, ensuring you can enjoy the maximum levels of comfort during your holiday.
