Stranraer Vacation Packages
Some 11,000 people call Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway home.
From here it’s about 310 miles (499 kilometers) to the southeast to London and 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southwest to Belfast.
Sometimes dramatic, sometimes wonderfully romantic, the castles and other defensive structures in this country are always excellent to photograph. When you stare up at the fairytale-like outer defenses of the historic Castle of St John, it's easy to envisage how local rulers used to defend this area.
After spending some time in the center of Stranraer, make your way to the coast to visit one of the region’s most illuminating attractions, the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse. This lighthouse is the perfect place to discover some local history, feel the salty wind in your hair and to witness the ocean’s ever-changing moods.
The Glenluce Abbey is a long-standing place of worship that is well worth checking out. Visit the site to learn about its cultural significance as well as to study its design.
