About Scotland

Scotland is the northernmost country in the United Kingdom, occupying the Northern third of the land, sharing a border with England to the South.

Scotland is a beautiful country well-known for its dramatic scenery of mountains and rugged coastlines, with the natural scenes of the Highlands as a top winner.

The Scottish climate tends to be very changeable, but even though the sun might not always shine, the warm welcome from the wonderful diversity of landscapes attracts many visitors.

If you’re heading away from Scotland by ferry then Northern Ireland is easily accessible with a choice of routes and ferry companies. Travelling from the Scottish mainland to the Orkney, Shetland or any of the destinations off Scotland’s west coast is more convenient than ever before and you’ll get to take in some of the most spectacular coastlines and landscapes in the UK while you sail too.

The direct route to the continent is no longer available, but there are numerous routes from Northern England to use instead.

About Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is one of the four parts of the United Kingdom, located in the island of Ireland, bordering the Republic of Ireland to the South and West.

Whether the thriving and vibrant city of Belfast and the story of the Titanic, the Giant’s Causeway coast with enchanting land and seascapes, or the ancient city of Derry with its rich cultural and architectural heritage, Northern Ireland offers so much for everyone to enjoy.

Getting in by ferry is simple with crossings on offer from England, Isle of Man and Scotland. The short hop from Scotland is regular, year round and offered by a number of ferry operators. The direct connection from England is less regular, but also year round and a popular service.

As there are numerous crossings to Ireland, including a service from the continent via France, you could also choose to sail to Ireland and drive across the border to Northern Ireland.
