About W Russell Bryson

I live in Derbyshire with my wife but I was born and bred in Scotland. We both love Scotland so we decided to buy a holiday cottage there. It has taken a year of hard work and love to refurbish Lochpark Cottage , but we think it has been worthwhile and should you stay there we hope you do to.

W Russell Bryson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why W Russell Bryson chose Stranraer

The south West of Scotland has a milder climate due to the gulf stream. The cottage has fantastic views over Loch Ryan yet has shops , restaurants etc within walking distance. The cottage is conveniently situated for exploring other parts of SW Scotland.

What makes this cottage unique

Being in Stranraer you are conveniently situated to visit many places such as Port Patrick, Port William and even a day trip to Ireland as the ferry leaves from just across the loch at Cairnryan

Agnew Park is just across the road from the cottage as is the seafront.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed a super break in the immaculate cottage. A lovely part of the country, our first visit to Stranraer. The welcome pack was indeed most welcome. There is a lot more to see and do around here and if we return, which seems likely, wewould not stay anywhere else.

A road trip to Stranraer

Jane & Russell's value for money property offers a perfect position on Loch Ryan.

The view from the top bedroom is inspiring.

The house is practical warm and comfortable with all you would need of a base as you explore the surrounding country sea and lochside beauty that is Galloway.

Thank you Jane & Russell.

Perfect place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Clean and well kept. Warm. Great views. Perfect Base to explore from. Highly recommend. Something to be aware of is that the bathroom is on the top floor and the stairs to the top floor has a very low ceiling.
