Whether you’re after a fun-filled city break in Glasgow or Edinburgh, or a relaxing getaway to the Highlands and Islands, there’s never been a better time to pack up the car and set sail for Scotland.

Ferry company Stena Line offers a choice of up to six daily crossings from Belfast to Cairnryan, and a range of superb value-for-money travel deals. And with a journey time of just 2 hours 15 minutes, the Stena service is quick and convenient.

The company’s Superfast VII and Stena Superfast VIII ships are the biggest ferries ever to sail between Northern Ireland and Scotland, offering unrivalled comfort on the Irish Sea.

As well as all the usual facilities and services you’d expect to find on board a modern passenger ferry, the Belfast-Cairnryan ships also boast a little something extra - the luxurious Nordic Spa.

Weary travellers can enjoy a relaxing jacuzzi, steamy sauna or a soothing massage from only £10 per treatment per person, and those booked into the Stena Plus lounge can enjoy access from as little as just £5 per person - the perfect way to while away an hour or so and make sure you arrive feeling refreshed, ready for the next stage of your journey.
