Things to Do - Carirnryan - Glasgow

I am ferrying into Cairnryan and was thinking about heading to Glasgow for the day. Is there anything to do around Cainryan or on the road to Glasgow?

Are you bringing a car over?

It's about two hours to Glasgow.

Culzean Castle is worth seeing and about one hour north of Cairnryan.

My group of 4 will be ferrying over from Belfast to

Cairnryan for partial day - any public transportation from the FERRY PORT? Taxi service? Any suggestions on what to do while in the area (with no car)?

(One in our group suggested we do this ferry ride - mainly to receive an additional passport stamp. Do they stamp passports??)

THanks!

No they don't dtamp passports as you are travelling from Northern Ireland to Scotland which are both part of the U.K. so there is no border crossing involved.

"(One in our group suggested we do this ferry ride - mainly to receive an additional passport stamp. Do they stamp passports??)" As your main reason is not valid hope you have a few good subsidiary reasons for the trip.

As you aren't leaving the UK they won't even want to see your passports so it seems a rather stupid waste of a day.

Faulty assumptions lead to faulty planning.

By all means visit Scotland, but find a better way to do it.

If you do want to go to Glasgow, use the through Ulsterbus/Scottish Citylink coach service and book your tickets from Belfast City Centre to Glasgow City Centre.

How about a day in Dublin instead? you will at least be in a different country, the Republic of Ireland.

different currency etc. (euros v sterling),.

Still no passport stamp though.
