Stranraer is a town in the Dumfries and Galloway region in the South West of Scotland. The name ‘Stranraer’ means ‘thick burn’ or ‘burn swarming with fish’ in Gaelic, and it lives up to its namesake, because the burn is an excellent place to fish.
The town is famous for the Stranraer Castle, built around 1511. Nowadays Stranraer looks very attractive with its white and colorful buildings.
The mid-summer installation of the WES250 in Stranraer was exactly 500 years after the building of The Stranraer Castle.
Glaick Farm is an excellent site for a wind turbine as it sees strong uninterrupted wind from the Irish Sea for most of the year.
