While visiting Cross Haven you can do as little or as much as you like.
Below is a small selection of local places of interest including website links:



Glenwhan Gardens.
Glenwhan Gardens, Dunragit - 12 acres of outstanding gardens overlooking the sea at Luce Bay, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland. Hand-crafted out of a wasteland by Bill & Tessa Knott. www.glenwhangardens.co.uk
Ferries to Belfast and Larne.
Ferries run from Stranraer daily to Belfast and Larne.  Discover the essence of the Island of Memories.  The regional diversity of Ireland and its exceptional history and culture have left a legacy of monuments, settlements and buildings that provide the visitor with a great day out.  There are hundreds of exciting things to do and places to see in every region of Ireland

Logan Botanical Gardens.
Logan Botanical Gardens are 14 miles south of Stranraer, at the south-western tip of Scotland, and it is unrivalled as the country's most exotic garden. Because of the influence of the Gulf Stream, a remarkable collection of bizarre and beautiful plants flourishes outside, making this garden a plantsman's paradise.
Mull of Galloway.
The Mull of Galloway which is the setting for the BBC series Two Thousand Acres of Sky is Scotland's most southerly point and is one of its least known parts, remaining an unspoiled paradise for visitors seeking peace and tranquility. We hope you will enjoy your visit and discover for yourself the beautiful countryside, the splendid views and good climate. There is much to see and do, at a leisurely pace.

Ardwell Gardens.
Ardwell Gardens are 10 miles south of Stranraer.The walled garden grows a large variety of summer bedding plants and produce, including potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries and raspberries, all available for purchase.  A walk around the largest pond (approximately half an hour) gives fine views over Luce Bay. Ardwell Gardens are naturally unspoilt and provide visitors with an idyllic location for a gentle walk.

Castle Kennedy Gardens.
Castle Kennedy Gardens are extensively landscaped with terraces, mounds and avenues, all of which were created by men and horses, and extend to more than 30 hectares. I hope you will enjoy using this site, and that you will find the gardens interesting. You may even wish to plan a visit to the gardens when you are next in the South West of Scotland.
Wigtown, Scotland's book town, shopping can be a relaxing day out.  Easy access and easy parking in the town's wide streets and market square, shopping is a pleasure in Wigtown.  It's an easy stroll round bookshops, gift shops, cafes and inns.
Portpatrick is nearly as far west as you can go in Southern Scotland, and nearly as far south as you can go in Western Scotland. So reaching it can involve a lot of travelling. But don't let that put you off. Portpatrick is a stunningly attractive village wrapped around a fascinating harbour, and well worth the trip wherever you are coming from.
