Drop in to the harbour beach area where the world skiffle championship was being held over the course of the week. What a sight that I don't think I will ever see again there must have been around fifty skiffs from all over the world...More

The whole place was very run down, dirty streets and shabby buildings. Would not visit again. There are no nice areas to sit. Free parking though.

Since the ferries moved to Cairnryan the harbour is virtually unused. A few small boats are moored there but the principal memory is of acres of former parking, now growing weeds.

We visited Stranraer Harbour today and thoroughly enjoyed walking along its piers. The ferries no longer dock in the harbour which makes it feel very tranquil and not as industrial. Several pleasure boats were moored in the harbour creating a marina like feel. Very nice

If you are into ships and boats this is a nice place to spend a little time. Fresh and open and good views. Nice to walk round the harbour if nothing to do.
