Pentland Ferries Routes

Pentland Ferries is a family run low-coast ferry operator offering the shortest crossing to Orkney for cars and passengers. Pentland was established by Andre and Susan Banks in 2001. The under 1 hour crossing is made on the brand-new purpose built catamaran Pentalina, which was launched in March 2009. On the journey you can look out for porpoises, dolphins, puffins, minke whales, and even basking sharks in the summer, all from the sundeck and 2 lounges with excellent panoramic views.

    Excellent experience
    • Easy to book. Very good value. Check in staff friendly and efficient. Amazed at the skill and patience of the staff organising the vehicles on board. Punctual on both crossings we made. Cant really comment on the catering as I didn't consume anything but others were very complimentary. Would recommend without reservation

    Over to Orkney
    • Great booking in as friendly staff walk the line no need to leave your vehicle. Load ok if you are a car, loaders when loading camper-vans were not checking heights when reversing vehicles as friends van nearly damaged the roof
