Stranraer, United Kingdom

Travel to Stranraer

Stranraer is a town in Dumfries and Galloway near the tip of Southwest Scotland. It's a ferry port, connecting Scotland with Northern Ireland, though nowadays all ferries run from Cairnryan a few miles north. The town itself has little of interest, but it's a good base for exploring the scenic Rhins of Galloway, the peninsula stretching north and south of Stranraer.

An alternative base 17 miles south is the village of Drummore: see that page for details of the Logan gardens and fishpond, and the Mull of Galloway.
