Cairnryan is a small Scottish village overlooking Loch Ryan and is notable today for its large modern ferry port which opened in 1973, originally operated by Townsend Thoresen and now by P&O Ferries, which links Scotland with Larne in Northern Ireland. Moving forward Cairnryan's status as an important ferry port looks to be secured, with P&O Irish Sea continuing to depart from Cairnryan and Stena Line has also received planning permission to build a separate terminal at Old House Point, including docking facilities for the HSS fast ferry.

P &O stands The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, which is usually known as P&O, was a British shipping and logistics company which dates from the early 19th century. Its head office was in London. In March 2006 it was sold to Dubai Ports World for £3.9 billion. The P&O Scottish routes are actually operated by P&O Irish Sea. P&O Irish Sea (registered as P&O European Ferries Irish Sea Ltd) is a constituent company of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O). P&O Irish Sea was formed in 1998 following the merger of the Cairnryan based services of P&O European Ferries and Pandoro Ltd, who operated routes between England, Scotland and France to Ireland.
