Stranraer, Dumfries & Galloway, West Scotland
Stranraer’s new breakwater and pontoon berths are popular with visiting cruising sailors, and a new facilities block will be completed in time for summer 2012. The Stena ferry service moved from Stranraer to Cairnryan in autumn 2011, and Dumfries and Galloway Council has plans to develop more leisure marine facilities at the former port. The town offers a good range of shops and visitor attractions, such as the museum and the Castle of St. John where the view from the roof is magnificent. Transport connections are good for crew changes. Stranraer is a great centre for the serious walker and is skirted by the Southern Upland Way, or the visitor can enjoy 18 holes of golf at Creachmore. Loch Ryan Sailing Club is located at Wig Bay, a little north of the town.
