About W Russell Bryson
I live in Derbyshire with my wife but I was born and bred in Scotland. We both love Scotland so we decided to buy a holiday cottage there. It has taken a year of hard work and love to refurbish Lochpark Cottage , but we think it has been worthwhile and should you stay there we hope you do to.
W Russell Bryson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why W Russell Bryson chose Stranraer
The south West of Scotland has a milder climate due to the gulf stream. The cottage has fantastic views over Loch Ryan yet has shops , restaurants etc within walking distance. The cottage is conveniently situated for exploring other parts of SW Scotland.
What makes this Cottage unique
Being in Stranraer you are conveniently situated to visit many places such as Port Patrick, Port William and even a day trip to Ireland as the ferry leaves from just across the loch at Cairnryan Agnew Park is just across the road from the cottage as is the seafront.
A terraced house with lots of room and a great view
We took granddaughter for a break along with our dog, the park straight across from the house which was really good, then straight onto the beach where we managed to go every day, plenty activities and good eating out was really good, House was well maintained and very clean also had a dishwasher/washing machine, plenty dishes for all kids of cooking.
Good week in Scotland
Very good property. One or two minor things could have been better but overall pleased.. Visited Logan Garden good, walked part of the Loch Ryan Way enjoyable. Mull of Galloway was superb with glorious sunshine. Whigtown book festival very good. Played two rounds of golf af good courses at Stranraer and Port Patrick ( our golf not good,) Stanraer not to our liking. Felt run down and struggled to find good places to eat. Like the area very much but would not return to Stranrear.
Lovely clean cottage parking is good great views. Loved the area people very friendly and helpful.
