Glasgow Prestwick is never far from the news, and the argument to nationalise the airport now rages. It’s not to be confused with Glasgow International, with Prestwick occupying a position further south in Ayrshire. This position on the west coast of Scotland makes it a hub for travellers wanting to connect to Ireland; as many flights come in from Dublin and Derry, along with a number of other commercial flights throughout mainland Europe. With car hire in Glasgow Prestwick Airport, the A78 provides fantastic access to the Highlands and Islands, and its proximity to the border makes it good for English arrivals/departures; hiring a car in Glasgow Prestwick makes transfers very much easier.
