Can you share some background about NorthLink Ferries?
Serco NorthLink Ferries provide scheduled lifeline passenger and freight services to Orkney and Shetland from the Scottish Mainland.
The comfortable and reliable service sails throughout the year, offering a service from Aberdeen to Lerwick in Shetland, with regular calls into Orkney’s capital of Kirkwall. We also operate sailings from Scrabster in Caithness to Stromness in Orkney. This 90-minute journey is the only sailing to Orkney which passes the iconic sea stack, the Old Man of Hoy.
More than just a business, Serco NorthLink Ferries view ourselves as a member of the local community, serving key sectors within the Northern Isles economies. These include the agriculture, aquaculture and tourism markets, carrying the equivalent of over 43,000 freight trailers and over 300,000 passengers per year.
