VisitScotland has launched an application that could help travellers planning Scottish ferry breaks to make the most of their time in the country.
The Days Out app is designed to highlight some of the inspirational things to see and do across Scotland, with more than 1,000 listings of different places to visit.
Users can pinpoint the location of more than 300 restaurants, bars and cafes and find out about some 150 special offers and promotions available across the country.
One option for people planning a holiday in Scotland is taking a trip to the Northern Isles, with Pentland Ferries
providing ferries from Gills Bay to St Margarets Hope
in Orkney and NorthLink
offering services from Aberdeen to Kirkwall and Lerwick in Shetland.
Other features of the new Days Out application allow users to find out about some of the things to see and do in their area and create their own holiday itinerary.
The guide can be downloaded for free from iTunes and is suitable for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
People planning a trip from Northern Ireland to Scotland can take ferries from Larne to Cairnryan
with P&O Ferries
, while Stena Line
operates ferries from Belfast to Stranraer
