Coming for a holiday? About the Stranraer and Cairnryan area
A small Scottish village overlooking Loch Ryan, Cairnryan is mostly known today for its large modern ferry port which opened in 1973, which links Scotland with Larne in Northern Ireland.
This attractive village of white-painted houses, once the homes of oyster fishermen, and a fine Queen Anne house is set against a green hillside.
Stranraer is an old settlement, with a castle dating from the 16th Century, and in the 18th and 19th Centuries it was a busy shipbuilding and shipping centre.
The A75 passes through only a small section of Stranraer. Away from the port are hotels and guesthouses, camping and caravan sites. There are gardens where visitors can sit and watch the ships going in and out of the harbour, parks where children can play, and a splendid golf course designed by the late James Braid and used for championship matches.
Stranraer is also the location for the Galloway Games, with trials of strength, music and dancing traditionally associated with the Highlands, as well as Agricultural and Horticultural Shows. Stranraer also houses the North west Castle Hotel which boasts its own Curling rink.
Visitors who enjoy an active holiday will find opportunities for sailing, boating and water-skiing at Loch Ryan as well as riding and golf as well as landscaped gardens a short drive away at Castle Kennedy.

East of Stranraer, Dunragit sits on high ground overlooking Luce Bay. Unusual plants, trees and shrubs can be found at Glenwhan Gardens nearby.
Further east is Glenluce, long an important crossing point on the Water of Luce. The magnificent ruins of Glenluce Abbey are here as is the commanding Castle of Park tower.
North of Stranraer is Leswalt where an 18 metre (59ft) high monument to Sir Andrew Agnew of Lochnaw who laid out Aldouran Glen with exotic trees, rare plants and paths can be found. Nearby is the 15th Century Lochnaw Castle.
Further north is Kirkcolm with its terraces of single and two-storey cottages, painted white and originally homes of fishermen. To the north-west is Corsewall Point with a lighthouse designed by Robert Stephenson in 1815.
South of Stranraer is Sandhead with miles of golden sandy beaches by Luce Bay; ideal for families with young children. Within a short distance is Kirkmadrine Church, which has some of the earliest Christian carved stones in Scotland.
