Dance InformationStranraer in Scotland is a town in the parish of Inch, Dumfries and Galloway, in the historical county of Wigtownshire in southwest Scotland.
It lies on the shores of Loch Ryan, on the northern side of the isthmus joining the Rhins of Galloway to the mainland. Stranraer, Dumfries and Galloway's second-largest town, is an administrative centre for the West Galloway Wigtownshire area of Dumfries and Galloway.
Stranraer is best known as having been a ferry port, previously connecting Scotland with Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland; the last service was transferred to nearby Cairnryan in November 2011. The main industries in the area are the ferry port, with associated industries, tourism and, more traditionally, farming.
The name comes from Scottish Gaelic An t-Sròn Reamhar meaning "the broad headland".
