The town and port of Larne is located on the east coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. The town's maritime history dates back over 1,000 years and is now a major cargo and passenger port. The town is only around 25 miles from the Scottish mainland and lies on the western side of a narrow inlet that links it to the sea. The eastern side of the inlet is the Island Magee Peninsular and to the west is the ancient volcanic formation of Antrim Plateau. Due to the town's proximity to Scotland, there are magnificent views to be had towards the Mull of Kintyre, Rhins of Galloway, Islay and Paps of Jura.
Larne is Northern Ireland's busiest ferry port and handles around 1 million passengers and 200, 000 cars every year. Passenger facilities at the port are excellent with lounge areas, a restaurant, cash machines, shops, tourist information and a rail and bus station. The two main ferry services operating out of the port to mainland Britain are to Cairnryan, with a crossing time of around 1 hour and 45 minutes. There is also a service to Troon with a crossing time of around 2 hours. There is also a ferry that operates between Larne and Fleetwood in the north west of England.
The small Scottish village of Cairnryan is located on the eastern shore of Loch Ryan in Dumfries and Galloway. The village was established in 1701 for workers on the Lochryan Estate, which features a deer park and a bowling green, and has an important maritime history, which continues with a ferry service connecting Scotland and Northern Ireland. The main facilities in the village today, are the Lochryan Hotel, some bed and breakfasts and guest houses, the caravan site built on the site of an old war camp site, Village Shop and the Merchant's House Restaurant.
The village has two ferry terminals connecting Scotland to Northern Ireland. The first opened in 1973, originally operated by Townsend Thoresen and now by P&O Ferries links Scotland with the port of Larne. The second at Old House Point is operated by Stena Line linking to the Port of Belfast in Belfast.
