In the past few months Stranraer has lost the StenaLine Ferry terminal to Cairnryan which to some indicates the death knell for the town but in other respects it might bring it new life as a holiday resort. The town sits at the southern end of Loch Ryan and there aren’t too many sheltered anchorages or safe sailing areas for junior and inter standard sailors down in this neck of the woods so I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before an enterprising company extends the marina here.
I took this photo from the old road above the town that runs down to Portpatrick —
Will pop in a few more photos from yesterday’s ride in this lovely part of Scotland.
I couldn’t resist showing that one of the hotel again 🙂
Here’s a shot or two taken last year in the hills above Cairnryan to the east to make up for it 🙂
