Back to Trail Four – Wigtown to Stranraer

Stoneykirk Aviation Museum

The museum provides a fascinating historical insight into the golden age of British aviation. There is an emphasis on the technology and equipment used by aircrew in post war military jet aircraft.

The focal point of the museum is the nose section of Avro Vulcan B1 XA903, along with documentation, drawings and photographs of its life as an engine test bed. Come and learn how the Vulcan was used to test the Blue Steel missile and the engines for Concorde and the Tornado. The collection also includes other jet aircraft cockpits and a collection of equipment from Cold War military aircraft. A small area is set aside for wartime exhibits to reflect RAF activity in the local area during the Second World War.

The museum is situated about 10 miles south of Stranraer in South West Scotland. All exhibits are displayed under cover.

The museum is open on most Sundays between March and October when tea/coffee and buns are served in our tearoom. The museum is also open on request to interested visitors by prior arrangement.  Please check the website for details and for opening dates/times.
