There are two state of the art ferry ports at Cairnryan which in turn carry 3 million passengers to and from Northern Ireland annually. The harbour at Stranraer will see major re-development. The first part of this larger plan was the opening of the Marina a few years ago which has proved very popular. Details of the harbour regeneration project can be viewed by visiting Dumfries and Galloway Council’s website and follow the links for Stranraer and Loch Ryan Regeneration. The district will benefit greatly from this substantial re-development by way of increasing the flow of visitors to the area.

There is an abundance of attractions to in the locality such as Castle Kennedy Gardens, Dunskey Estate and Ardwell Estate. The district boasts superb golf courses at Creachmore on the outskirts of Stranraer, Dunskey, Portpatrick and County near Glenluce. The pretty village of Portpatrick sits on the rugged Galloway coast. The village has a plethora of restaurants and bars, a harbour and is the starting point of the Southern Upland Way. The Galloway Forest Park, which was awarded the prestigious designation of the first Dark Sky Park in the UK is within driving distance. There are beautiful coastal walks, stone circles and ancient ruins and an rspb reserve to visit.
