Although I have used Northlink before, this was my first time using the service from Stromness to Scrabster. Boarding was smooth and as I was one of the first passengers to board I was able to find a good seat in the Quiet Lounge.
Very comfortable, relaxing and quiet trip from Scrabster to Stromness. Northlink Ferry personnel were helpful, food was good and ride was smooth. Staying in the Magnus lounge might be good during the busy season.
of all the ferries I have been on more than ten NorthLink is the leader in how it should be done
service, style . and runs on time .food is second to none .also all the staff from captain down to cleaner are great

I am assuming you are planning to travel to Orkney as they are the sailings that arrive in late in the evening from Aberdeen. We also travel from Scrabster to Stromness with two sailings to Stromness, Orkney in the Winter months and three sailings in the Summer months. You can see our timetables on our website.
