Ferrying from Belfast to Scotland

I live in a landlocked state, so I take boats whenever I can.

There might be nothing more serene than moving through open water with no land in sight. And if you want to get to Scotland from Northern Ireland, the best way is by ferry.

It’s about a two-hour ride, and there isn’t much to do except walk around the deck and watch the sea. Which, after a jam-packed week in Ireland, I was happy to do.

    What a lovely ferry ride! I have taken one from the North Carolina mainland to the south end of the Outer Banks. Serene.
