    Solicitors in Stranraer


    Stranraer is a town found in the western part of the council area of Dumfries and Galloway, in the south western part of Scotland. The town is situated on the shores of Loch Ryan, on the northern side of the isthmus joining the Rhins of Galloway to the mainland.

    The town of Stranraer is a major urban centre and is in fact an administrative centre for the West Galloway Wigtownshire area of Dumfries and Galloway. It also used to be the location of a popular ferry that traversed from Stranraer to Belfast in Northern Ireland, but this service was discontinued in 2011.

    The etymology of Stranraer and Clayholers

    The name of Stranraer is believed to be derived from the Scottish Gaelic term An t-Sròn Reamhar which can be directly translated as meaning ‘the fat nose’. This is thought to be a reference to the fact that the settlement is located on a broad headland in the south west of Scotland which protrudes much like a fat nose would from a face.

    The official term for residents of the town is that they are Stranraerarians but those residents who live in the original loch-side area of the settlement, centred around the Sheuchan Street and Agnew Crescent area are sometimes referred to as ‘Clayholers’.

    The population of Stranraer

    In spite of its relatively remote nature, being set away from many of the larger population centres of Scotland, Stranraer is in fact a relatively large settlement. The latest available census data demonstrates that the town does indeed play host to more than 10,000 permanent residents.

    This makes Stranraer a comparatively busy and active settlement, which brings the town a good deal of benefits but also has some downsides. Amongst those is the fact that it will be a relatively common location of accidents and injuries, and it is that which makes it pertinent to discuss compensation and solicitors in Stranraer, residents.
