Scotland's Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been in Stranraer for talks about the regeneration of the town.
She was also there for the signing of a Memorandum of understanding between the Council and Stena over the future development of the old ferry terminal.
Nicola Sturgeon said investment in to the town's marina and west pier was a fraction of what was being planned.
"The £2.4 million being spent in the west pier is a fraction of the investment that's going in to making sure Stranraer has the modern up to date infrastructure, digital infrastructure that it needs to thrive as a town in the future. So this is an ongoing process"
