Glasgow to Belfast by surface


Departing Cairnryan, Scotland

This evening, I am reprising a sea crossing from Scotland to Ireland.Ultimate start and finish points were Glasgow and Belfast respectively.

First, we travelled down the Ayrshire Coast to the ferry port of Cairnryan passing through Ayr, views of Ailsa Craig, Girvan and the golfing mecca of Turnberry.This section of the trip covered a distance of 108 miles.

Next we connected with the Stena Super-Fast ferry to Belfast, a crossing across the Irish Sea which took about 2 hrs 15 minutes which was on time and smooth.

Arriving Belfast Harbour, Northern Ireland.

We arrived Belfast City Centre about 6.45 pm, checked into our hotel and then went for a pleasant fish and chip meal at a local pub, an outing which proved a good value experience and provided and opportunity to connect with an interesting local.

Next, we commence our tour proper, working our way around the Northern Ireland coast taking in the scenic attractions.
