Visit Cairnryan and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Cairnryan, Dumfries and Galloway, lies half-way along the East side of Loch Ryan. Here, on a long straight stretch of coast lying beneath the raised-beach bluff, the modern port of Cairn-ryan was built during the Second World War. Part of the famous Mulberry Harbour, used for the liberation of Normandy on D-Day, was made here. Since the services ceased to use the port installations, they have passed into the hands of a private firm, but they are little used today. There is a lighthouse on the point by the harbour.
Lochryan House was built in 1701 by the Agnew family on a very individual Dutch design, and was inherited in the late 18th century by the son of Mrs Dunlop of Dunlop. This man, one of Burns's correspondents, later changed his name to Wallace. There are Victorian additions to the house, but it is largely unspoilt.
