  • Stranraer Oyster Festival 2020 Cancelled

    The Fourth

    Stranraer Oyster Festival


    SDT are sad to have to announce the cancellation of this years planned Stranraer Oyster Festival over the weekend of September 11/12 and 13th September. Despite leaving the difficult decision as long as possible, in the end there is no way as organisers we can guarantee the environment for a safe event given the current situation worldwide.





    To celebrate the annual harvesting of Loch Ryan`s unique Scottish Native Oysters, Stranraer Oyster Festival takes place in September.

    They’re sought after by chefs around the world but until fairly recently Scotland’s only wild, native oyster fishery, hidden beneath the crystal clear waters of Loch Ryan, was a well-kept seafood secret.

    Stranraer Oyster Festival has shone a spotlight on this delicious seafood delicacy, making Scottish native oysters accessible and easy to try and enjoy during this three-day foodie celebration.

    The Festival was due to return for its fourth year from Friday 11th – Sunday 13th September 2020 but due to the current situation the Stranraer Development Trust have taken the very sad decision to cancel the event for 2020  Despite being relatively new to the food festival scene, it has quickly become established as one of Scotland’s most exciting foodie experiences.

    The Festival marks the start of the native oyster season, which opens on 1st September

    Not too many people know that Loch Ryan is host to one of the largest oyster beds in Scotland. The beds contain  an estimated 1 million oysters and dates back to 1701 when a Royal Charter was granted. The Loch Ryan Oyster Bed is the only one in Scotland to be self-sufficient and harvesting is carefully managed to provide potential for further growth in oyster numbers.

    The Oyster Festival is spread over three days and details of the full and varied programme can be found on their website.




    Check out full details, timing etc on the Festival`s Website

    ……………….always something to see & do!







  • Galloway Country Fair 2021

    Galloway Country Fair




    21st & 22nd August 2021


    It is with regret and huge disappointment that we confirm the cancellation of the Galloway Country Fair 2020, due to be held on 22nd and 23rd August.

    This will be a disappointment to our visitors, traders and sponsors, as it is for the team at Drumlanrig.

    At a time such as this, however, the safety and wellbeing of those involved and local communities must be prioritised. We have a duty of care to protect the most vulnerable and continuing with the Fair would not allow us to do this.

    The team at Drumlanrig are passionate about the Fair and hope to welcome you back on 21st and 22nd August in 2021.

    Join us for the award-winning Galloway Country Fair 2021, set in the grounds of the stunning Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway.

    Galloway Country Fair is an annual two day event held on the grounds of Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway.

    Taking place on 21st and 22nd August 2021  

    The event is a celebration of rural life and brings together food and drink, country sports, entertainment, rural crafts, children’s activities and much, much more to ensure an outstanding day for every member of the family. For more information contact 01848 331 555 or email
