Ferries to Scotland

Scotland is the northernmost of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, sharing a 60 mile long land border with England to the south and separated from Northern Ireland by the North Channel of the Irish Sea.

Scotland is a vibrant, exciting country, with a wide range of cultures and an extraordinarily rich heritage.

What makes Scotland such a hugely popular tourist destination is the sheer range of attractions and activities packed into such a small and accessible country.

Whether using organised tours or exploring at your own pace, you can revel in the lively, cosmopolitan entertainment of the towns and cities, enjoy the wealth of artistic and cultural activities running throughout the year, sample some of the best cuisine in the world, explore the country's dramatic and colourful history and natural heritage, spectate from the sidelines or take a more active role in a wide variety of sporting pursuits.
