The port at Cairnryan is only 5 miles from Starnraer, and has good road connections to Glasgow and a long-term car park. Cairnryan is a small Scottish village overlooking Loch Ryan in the south-west of Scotland, set amongst some glorious countryside. Cairnryan is mostly notable today for its large, modern ferry port, and has been of vital importance in maritime history, due to its use during the Second World War. During the War Cairnryan's port had three piers and a military railway constructed by the army linking the village with Stranraer. These developments along with its strategic position of being closer by sea to Northern Ireland paved the way for Cairnryan to be regarded as a vital Scottish port ever since.

    Over the sea to Ballyshannon
    • Cairnryan to Larne with P&O Irish Sea Ferries

      Everything was smooth and professional. Only query I have is - why does it take 2 hours to cover 22 miles??!!

    Ferry - Cairnryan to Belfast (return)
    • Cairnryan to Belfast with Stena Line

      Great experience in both directions. Great ferry (Stenaline), was on time in both directions, very smooth sailing and plenty to do on-board for the 2hr 15min journey.
