How will ferry services be managed in an independent Scotland?

Ferries are an essential part of Scotland’s transport network. The quality of our ferry services impacts on us all, affecting both island and mainland communities. The Scottish Government is fully committed to delivering first class sustainable ferry services to our communities, stimulating social and economic growth across Scotland.

The planned improvements to Scotland’s ferry services, as set out in our recently published Ferries Plan will enable our rural and remote communities to thrive, and continue to make a significant contribution to Scotland’s economy. With the fully integrated transport system that independence will deliver, we can ensure the best alignment between ferries and other modes of transport.
