Afloat adds the port is where the Highspeed Sea-Service (HSS) to Belfast operated until 2011.

The HSS Stena Voyager along with conventinal tonnage was replaced in the same year following a switch of ferryport to nearby Cairnryan. In addition the relocation of the Scottish ferryport saw the introduction of a pair of 'Superfast' ferries.
