    Wonderful transport between Belfast and Scotland
    • I considered many transport options to visit Stranraer, Scotland. I spent the day before my eastbound crossing in Belfast and found it to be a wonderful and inexpensive city to explore. The ferry was smooth and comfortable. Excellent experience in the Stena Plus lounge. Return trip was equally pleasant and great value for the money.
