This spacious detached villa is situated in a quiet area on the edge of the bustling harbour town of Stranraer. Situated at the head of Loch Ryan, it’s the gateway to the Rhinns of Galloway and for more than a century was a busy ferry port for services between south west Scotland and Northern Ireland. The town has many shops and there are plenty of places to dine out too. The town’s main attraction is the Castle of St. John, a ruined four-storey tower house built around 1500, which sits on a green in the main street, and there are several eye-catching artworks in the area surrounding the castle with Stranraer Museum in the old town hall. Close by are Castle Kennedy Gardens, with the castle, two lochs, a giant lily pond and an avenue of monkey puzzle trees. Logan Botanic Garden sits 13 miles south of the town and is home to exotic ferns and palms and boasts a beautiful walled garden.
The area is steeped in history and the landscape diverse, a haven for artists, birdwatchers and walkers. Portpatrick, 8 miles, lies at the start of the Southern Upland Way, one of Scotland’s acclaimed long distance footpaths, covering 212 miles to Cockburnspath on the east coast. The Mull of Galloway with its grass roofed visitor centre is Scotland’s most southerly point with amazing views of Ireland, England, Isle of Man and Scotland. Lucky visitors may spot seals and minke whales and will most certainly see a host of seabirds. Take the high speed ferry to Ireland for a spot of sightseeing or a shopping trip to Belfast. Ideal for customers looking to make the most of the kitchen, there is a large supermarket just 500 yards away. Let the children run and play in nearby Stair Park, just a short walk away, recently refurbished so that all facilities are adapted for use by children with disabilities including toilets and changing block. Pony trekking is available locally. Beach 500 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.
