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.

    Hassle free
    • Trip was good. Boat was on time and hassle free. Only thing I would say is that the price of the food and drinks is too high considering the quality of food offered. Everything else is good.
