Departing Cairnryan, Scotland

Today was the start of our Northern Ireland tour ex Glasgow, Scotland.

First, we travelled down the Ayrshire Coast from Glasgow to the ferry port of Cairnryan passing through Ayr, views of Ailsa Craig, Girvan and the golfing mecca of Turnberry.

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

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.
