NorthLink Ferries is your gateway to experiencing the Northern Isles.
Sail to Orkney and Shetland by travelling from Scrabster and Aberdeen on the Scottish mainland to Kirkwall, Stromness or Lerwick.
Your journey begins on board the ferry service, where you can enjoy a freshly cooked meal in the on-board restaurant – prepared using local produce – try a drink at the bar, or have a relaxing evening in the comfort of the Magnus Lounge.
For those looking for something different, visit the on-board shop for a selection of gifts and local items, or the cinema which shows some of the latest films. Younger passengers can enjoy a range of games consoles or the Vikling's Den which is perfect for little ones.
Choose from a selection of accommodation options including premium and executive cabins, sleeping pods or reclining chairs which provide a good night's sleep before your island adventure the next morning.
On MV Hamnavoe, take in the sights of the towering Old Man of Hoy – one of the tallest sea stacks in Britain – whilst travelling between Scrabster and Stromness. Fascinating wildlife including seabirds and sea life can often be spotted on this route so keep an eye out for NorthLink's wildlife packs which allow families to use binoculars to spy animals and find out more about local nature.
Make the most of your time in Orkney with MV Hamnavoe's bed and breakfast option – an offer which provides a relaxing but early start for your onward journey. Book to spend the night on board in one of the comfortable en suite cabins before travelling on the first sailing from Stromness for arrival in Scrabster on the mainland just 90 minutes later.
