Small enough that if you're pushed for time you don't have to do rush/miss bits but well worked out with each room having boards about said room and a "touchy-feely" for kids to not let them get bored.

As it's sitting in the centre of town you can - on a clear day - have an amazing view if you climb to the top of the tower

This local goal is worth a visit as it gives an insight into Stranraer's past and a trip to the top via the stone staircase is worth the effort as it gives a great view over Loch Ryan.
