Wigtownshire

Stranraer town centre is attractive and bustling, and while it helps to see it on a sunny day, the whites and bright colours of many of the buildings make it brighter in any light.

Created a Burgh of Barony in 1596 and a Royal Burgh in 1617, Stranraer is a former busy ferry port with many a tale to tell.

Stranraer has always had close links with Ireland due to its proximity. Day trips across the Irish Sea are rich and varied, visit Belfast's fabulous city centre or take a trip up the Antrim Coast to the Giant's Causeway. The sheltered waters of Loch Ryan providing a safe harbour and a marina is currently being developed. This is located approximately 400 metres from Sky Cottage.

There is a lot to do in Stranraer and the surrounding area. Take a walk around the town and along the shore, visiting the museum and the Castle of St. John where the view from the roof is magnificent. Follow the Town Trail and discover for yourself the history and diversity of the town.

Stranraer is a great centre for the serious walker and nature enthusiast, and is skirted by the Southern Upland Way. For those who enjoy a garden walk, three famous gardens in the area are open to the public - Castle Kennedy, Glenwhan and Logan Botanic Gardens.

Dumfries and Galloway is now internationally acclaimed as having some of the world's best mountain biking, guaranteed,
with great local food and fine local ales make visiting the 7 stanes a must. Come and spend some time in Scotland's biking heaven! Bike hire is available from a guest house just a couple of houses down the crescent, or bring your own bikes and store them in the outhouse in the back garden.

Children love Agnew Park with its pedal boats, train rides, adventure playground and crazy golf. There is also a pedal go-kart track for older children. The entrance to the park is located only 50 metres from Sky Cottage.

There are two bowling greens in the town, at West End and Stranraer Bowling Club, where visitors are welcome. Visit Stair Park to play tennis, watch a football match, try out the Skateboard Park if you are a bit more adventurous or relax in the nearby Gardens of Friendship. Enjoy 18 holes of golf at Creachmore, or travel a little further to the Wigtown County Club at Glenluce, or Dunskey at Portpatrick.

Fishing within Stranraer and its locality is rich and varied. There are many fresh water lochs, reservoirs, rivers and burns. Sea fishing is fabulous and there are a diverse range of species available. The waters in this region remain one of the least fished by commercial fishing fleets.

Stranraer has several beaches, but travel a few miles out with the town to Sandhead (Scotland's longest beach) and New England Bay for miles of sand, or all around Loch Ryan for pebbly beaches. The Sailing Club at Wig Bay is a haven for yachts of all sizes.

When it's wet visit the Ryan Centre and swim in the Leisure Pool, or hire a hall for badminton or ball games. You may be able to spend an evening at the Ryan Theatre to watch a film or see a live show.
