Sheltered by the Rhinns of Galloway, a promontory lying to its west, Stranraer sits at the head of beautiful Loch Ryan and is a busy ferry port linking Scotland with Northern Ireland. Archaeologists believe it may also have been a naval base in Roman times. Close to the town centre is the 16th century Castle of St John, once the local jail for Covenanters, while the a local – built to look like a ship - was the one-time residence of Sir John Ross, the Victorian explorer who established the true position of the Magnetic North Pole.
On the outskirts of the town is Port Logan Fish Pond, a 200-year-old pool created by a blow hole in the Ice Age which is used to store live sea fish.
The grand Castle Kennedy Gardens was the creation of the Earl of Stair in the 18th century. It has ruins, lakes and woodland walks and is a near-neighbour of the remarkable Logan Botanic Garden.
