Marine activities on Loch Ryan include sailing and coastal rowing. The town hosted the World Skiffie Championships for coastal rowing in 2019.

Fernbank House is well positioned within an elevated garden. The front of the property is mainly mono-blocked providing ample off street parking for a number of cars with a wrought iron sliding gate across the driveway and wrought iron railings bordering the front of the garden at pavement level.

To the side of the property is a wooden gate leading round to the walled rear garden which has been cleverly landscaped to make the most of the plot size. Immediately adjacent to the house is a large gravel area which can also be accessed from both the snug and rear hall providing an ideal patio area for “alfresco” dining. Steps lead up from the gravelled area to a terraced area which is mainly laid to lawn and bordered by raised flower beds that are well stocked with a variety of mature shrubs.




As well as the newly fitted boiler and ‘smart thermostats’, Fernbank also has 12 solar panels which are erected at the back of the rear garden. The electricity generated by the solar panels is used by the current owners and any additional electricity which isn’t used is then exported back to the grid and receive “FIT” payments for doing so. The current contract is with Scottish Power and is due to end in 2033.   It is thought that a new owner may decide to add on battery storage too which would allow them to use 100% of the electric generated.
