Take the ferry to Shetland and Orkney
NorthLink Ferries sail daily from Aberdeen to Shetland and from Shetland to Aberdeen, sailing every evening and arriving the following morning.
These ships call in at Orkney frequently, arriving in the late evening before sailing on to Aberdeen or Lerwick.
NorthLink Ferries also sail from Scrabster on the north coast of Scotland to Stromness in Orkney. This is the only ferry crossing to take you past the breathtaking Old Man of Hoy.
The 90 minute crossing takes place up to three times a day.
