Couldn't agree more.
Fishguard is a nice compact terminal. A model of good practice.
There are so few locations like this in 2011. Larne Harbour is the nearest example on this side with Dún Laoghaire following a bit behind and Europort...lagging far behind.
Stranraer is currently similar to Fishguard but in the Autumn Stena Line are relocating to a new port further along Loch Ryan near Cairnryan so rail-ferry integration between the main Scottish cities and NI/Dublin will very much be a thing of the past.
We often don't value what we have till it has gone!
