From Prestwick Apt


On arrival at Prestwick Airport, the first road you will come to is the A79. Follow signs for Glasgow initially, but watch for signs for the A78/Irvine/Greenock almost as soon as you are on the first bit of dual carriageway. The A78 follows the coast to the north of Prestwick, and the Ardrossan ferry terminal is well sign posted. It is around thirty minutes from leaving the airport to arrival at the ferry terminal.

Public transport is not quite as straightforward, but there is a rail station attached to the airport, and the best idea is to get on a train heading for Glasgow, change at Kilwinning for the Ardrossan ferry train, and the ferry train will bring you right to the pier!! Just do a bit of planning on one of the rail websites to make sure that your connections all work well. You will normally walk off the train and straight onto the boat, as they are timed to dovetail with each other. If one is late, the other will normally wait!
