Castles and Gardens in Stranraer

Discover the Medieval history of Stranraer by taking a trip to the Castle of St John. These popular ruins were used as headquarters for government troops during the Killing Times in the 17th Century, then they were made into a prison in the 19th Century. An on-site activity room makes for the perfect family day out with kids.

Castle Kennedy is a 14th century building that sits on a hill with views of White Loch. The preened gardens feature a pretty collection of flowers, shrubs and Champion Trees. Events take place on these lawns in the summertime or guests can simply take along a hamper and rug for a scenic picnic.

Nature lovers might prefer the Aldouran Wetland Garden in Leswalt village. Take a stroll along the boardwalk through the woodland and wetland, listening to birdsong and spotting squirrels. Stop to appreciate the community garden and the peace and quiet that Scotland offers in abundance.
