About Us


At Gateway to Galloway Visitor Centre and Community Hub we aim to be sustainable, viable, and provide long term economic and cultural community benefit, not just for Stranraer but for all of Galloway, contributing to Scotland’s success.

Although the Gateway to Galloway Hub is based in Stranraer, its activities and projects reach across a wide area. The Gateway to Galloway promises to deliver benefits across the entire Rhins of Galloway peninsula to the West and to a radius extending throughout Galloway to the East and North as far as Girvan in South Ayrshire.


The Hub will be a space for members of the community to use freely and will have free Wi-Fi available. Additionally, the hub will act as a Box Office for any events hosted by Stranraer Development Trust such as The Oyster Festival!

We stock a range of local arts & crafts and are always keen to stock more suppliers! Please visit/contact us if you would like to discuss being featured.
