Situated on the banks of Loch Ryan, Stranraer was constructed around the 16th century St. John’s Castle, or Stranraer Castle. For many years, it was one of the main UK ferry ports providing services to Belfast, and it’s also known for its sea fishing industry.
Follow the Town Trail from Stranraer Castle to the seafront to see historic buildings like North West Castle, the former home of Sir John Ross, the Scottish Arctic explorer who made three expeditions to the Arctic, or visit Stranraer Museum, in the Old Town Hall, for a taste of Stranraer’s past.
You can also enjoy a scenic walk along the Loch Ryan Coastal Path, which begins at the Tourist Information Centre, or spend a day at Agnew Park, with its boating lake and miniature railway.
Whether you’re on holiday with the whole family or on a romantic break for two, you’ll be able to unwind in this charming coastal town.
