Stranraer is a town at the South Western extremity of Scotland, 9 miles from Glenluce.

It is the major Scottish ferry port to both Northern Ireland and Eire, with a particularly busy route to Larne. This traffic developed from 1820, with piers built into Loch Ryan.

Stranraer was created a Royal burgh in 1617.

Stranraer Castle is a well preserved 16th century tower house, and stands in the town centre. It now houses a museum dedicated to the history of prisons.

Colin Calderwood, Scotland footballer, was born at Stranraer.

The Arctic explorer Sir John Ross lived in the town.
