Fly or Ferry, Belfast to Scotland

Is it a picturesque journey from Belfast to Cairnryan and drive up to Glasgow or is it better to save the time and fly to Glasgow?

The ferry journey itself is quite pretty, and the A77 road between Cairnryan and Ayr can be quite scenic too. It's a relaxing journey but it does take time between the ferry and the bus. If you're in a hurry, flying would likely be quicker, but if you have the time to sit back and relax a bit, the ferry and bus is a great option.

Thanks for your reply. We only have 5 or 6 days in Ireland and Scotland so I'm thinking it would be better to save the time and fly.
