About Us

OLDEST newspaper in Wigtownshire — and the best seller!

That’s the Stranraer & Wigtownshire Free Press which has been recording the happenings in the Shire for the last 170 years.

Thanks to the loyalty of our readers, who obviously know a good product when they see one, our strength in Stranraer has never been greater. And with sales in the Machars we can now proudly boast that 94 per cent of all adults living within a 30 minute drive time of Stranraer, read this newspaper.

Key to this success has been our drive and desire to cater for people living in Wigtownshire. We are now selling over 7000 copies each week.

Nobody else comes close.
