This imposing, detached, red sandstone and whinstone house was built in 1880 by a local chemist. Ardmhor, meaning ’the big, high place’, stands on an imposing rise within large walled gardens. The property is elegantly proportioned and retains many period features including decorative cornices, centre ceiling roses and handsome marble fireplaces, not to mention the impressive staircases and balustrade. It has been renovated, yet retains its links to the bygone days with the service bell console remaining in the kitchen – try it out!

Stranraer is an ideal base from which to explore not only this unspoilt area of Dumfries and Galloway, but is within easy reach of the rugged Ayrshire coastline, or a day trip to Ireland from the nearby port of Cairnryan. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, there are many beautiful gardens to explore, including the world renowned Logan Botanical Gardens.

The area boasts many pretty little ports such as Sandhead, Portpatrick and the RSPB Scotland Mull of Galloway nature reserve where thousands of seabirds nest in the cliff face during the spring and summer. Walking is a delight, whether clifftop, beaches, hills or forests and the Southern Upland Way passes close by. A cyclist’s paradise with the world famous 7Stanes within easy reach. If you prefer shooting or golf there are many facilities nearby including the course in Stranraer and the county course is just a short drive away. Stranraer offers a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.
