About the location
Stranraer 6 miles.
Kirkcolm, formerly known as Stewarton, which was established in the early 17th century, is a small village on the tip of the Rhins of Galloway Peninsula. The village offers an award-winning pub and a shop, along with an excellent children’s playground. Nearby are lovely walks to the coast with superb birdwatching. The village is just six miles from Stranraer which is situated at the head of Loch Ryan and has a long history as a ferry port. Stranraer is the gateway to the Rhins of Galloway Peninsula and the town’s main attraction is the Castle of St. John, which is a ruined four-story tower house built around 1500, and Stranraer Museum can be found in the old town hall. Three miles east of Stranraer is Castle Kennedy Gardens where you will find the castle, two lochs, a giant lily pond and an avenue of monkey puzzle trees. Kirkcolm is an ideal village to be based in for exploring this part of Dumfries and Galloway.
