FREE SHUTTLE BUS: Catch the FREE Wigtown Show bus!

It’s a McCulloch’s Coach which leaves Stranraer, Port Rodie at 8am and picks up enroute at both Glenluce (approx. 8.10am) & Kirkcowan (approx. 8.20am) before running back and forth all day (except 1-2pm) from Wigtown town centre to the showfield.  The bus will leave the showfield for the last time at 5pm to return to Stranraer and drop off at the same places it picked up.   




Take the A75 Gretna-Stranraer road, turning onto the A714 to Wigtown at Newton Stewart. Branch off the A714 one mile before Wigtown and join the B7005 signposted Bladnoch, Whithorn and Port William. Bladnoch Park is just over two miles further on, on the right. 



Take the A77 from Ayr to Girvan and join the A714 to Newton Stewart. Continue through Newton Stewart over the A75 roundabout heading for Wigtown. Branch off the A714 one mile before Wigtown and join the B7005 signposted Bladnoch, Whithorn and Port William. Bladnoch Park is just over two miles away, on the right. See the interactive map for our exact location.
