Cairnryan is a small village in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. It lies on the eastern shore of Loch Ryan, 6 miles north of Stranraer. The port of Cairnryan is ideal for exploring the west coast of Scotland and for heading to the bustling city of Glasgow. Visitors can explore its famous shopping districts, cultural and arts scene or have a meal at one of the city’s renowned restaurants. The scene in Glasgow is so varied that visitors can have a lively time with a group of friends, take their parents for a relaxed treat, enjoy it with the kids or spend some quality time with their partner. There is so much to be uncovered, including the city’s iconic buildings such as the City Chambers and magnificent Glasgow Cathedral and for families there is the Jurassic Jungle with its state-of-the-art play facilities or Glasgow Science Centre. Football fans will undoubtedly want to take a tour of Scotland’s national stadium at the Hampden Experience. For lovers of culture and design, a visit to The Willow Tea Rooms and Glasgow School of Art is a must as they can learn about the wonderful artistic history of the city. For something a little bit different, try the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery to find fascinating exhibitions and collections or step aboard the Tall Ship, an icon of Glasgow’s ship-building heritage which is still afloat to this day. For those partial to an occasional tipple, why not try a tour of Glengoyne Distillery and Tennant’s Wellpark Brewery which presents a fascinating look into the history and success of Scotland’s oldest brewery.
