With modern ferry infrastructure to accommodate domestic and international traffic, Scrabster is the gateway for daily lifeline ferry services to Orkney and cruise ships visiting the remote, beautiful and historic far North of Scotland.

The ferry terminal is used by Serco Northlink Ferries roll on/roll off vessel, Hammnavoe. The ship is linked to the terminal by an elevated overhead walkway for the comfort and safety of passengers.

Cruise ships up to 180 metres and 8 metres draft berth alongside, with larger ships using the deep water anchorage available within 0.2 nautical miles. The former St Ola Pier linkspan is used for tenders operating from the anchorage. Pilotage is not compulsory at Scrabster.
