Ferries

Aberdeen is a lifeline port for the Northern Isles, the daily passenger and freight ferries provided by Serco NorthLink are an essential service for many travellers and businesses from across Scotland and the UK.

The overnight passenger ferry departs and arrives at the Aberdeen Terminal at Jamieson’s Quay, which is a five-minute walk from the shops and restaurants in the city centre, and the train and bus stations. 

The daily freight ferry service carries a variety of cargo to and from the Northern Isles, including:

  • Containers and Load On-Load Off (Lo-Lo) cargo
  • Livestock and temperature-controlled foodstuffs
  • Unaccompanied vehicles
  • Dangerous goods
  • Outsized loads

Our specialist operations teams work directly with Serco NorthLink to ensure safe and smooth operations. 

There is also a weekly cargo service to Norway operated by Sea Cargo.
