The Agnew Monument is situated on a hill just over 4 miles northwest of Stranraer.

The Agnew Monument was built in 1850 in memory of Sir Andrew Agnew of Lochnaw Castle, and MP for Wigtownshire in four successive parliaments.

The monument is built on the site of an Iron Age hillfort known as Tor of Craigoch from 2,500 years back. You can find remains of the fort around the monument.

The area has great views over Loch Ryan, Irish Sea and Mull of Galloway. Bushes around the monument now restrict some views.
