Aberdeen (to/from) Lerwick Ferries
The Port of Aberdeen is one of Britain's busiest ports, and is the chief commercial port for the Northeast of Scotland. It handles over 9,000 visiting ships annually, and is also Scotland's main East coast ferry port. Terminal facilities are limited, though you will find a small coffee shop as well as a convenience store in the terminal.
The Northlink Ferries company offers five weekly sailings to Lerwick in the Shetland Islands (duration 14 hours). Two new identical ships operate on the route, the Hjaltland and the Hrossey, each ship providing 100 cabins. Each of the ships also has a very large vehicle deck, complete with an additional car deck. Onboard facilities are extensive, with a number of eating and drinking establishments available, as well as lively entertainment on the 14-hour overnight crossings.

Lerwick is a large and busy working port, and the terminus for the NorthLink Ferries to Kirkwall and Aberdeen. Shetland's capital and only town is Lerwick. This lies roughly at the centre of Shetland's main island, Mainland. The old fishing port has been vastly expanded, but retains much of its charm.
