As well as the hotels’ extensive indoor leisure facilities which include a gym, swimming pool, spa and its very own curling rink, there is lots to do in the local area around North West Castle and throughout Dumfries and Galloway.
Stranraer is a busy little town with a large selection of lovely shops and cafes to sit down and have a nice coffee, afternoon tea or lunch, while you take a break from exploring the area.
The North West Castle Hotel is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area including:
The surrounding countryside has golf courses such as Creachmore Golf Course, Dunskey Golf Course and Glenluce Golf Course, which guest and visitors can enjoy.
There are also beautiful gardens to explore at Logan, Castle Kennedy, Glenwhan and Dunskey House and beautiful beaches at Lady Bay, or even closer, the Cockle Shore just a few hundred yards from the hotel.
