Out & About at North West Castle
As well as the hotels' extensive indoor leisure facilities which include a gym, swimming pool, spa, sauna 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, tea of afternoon lunch in while you take a break from exploring the area. The surrounding countryside has golf courses such as:
- Creachmore Golf Course
- Dunskey Golf Course
- Glenluce Golf Course
Which guest and visitors can enjoy, as well as beautiful gardens to explore at Logan, Castle Kennedy, Glenwhan and Dunskey House. There are beautiful beaches at Lady Bay, or even closer, the Cockle Shore just a few hundred yards from the hotel.
The long peninsula known as the 'Rhins of Galloway' is dotted with pretty villages, amid very beautiful countryside. At the tip, lies the Mull of Galloway, Scotland's most southerly point, where you can climb the lighthouse, spot some rare seabirds, or perhaps some seals or even porpoises.
