Invest in Ferries

Ferries are lifeline services for Scotland’s islands; they need safe, reliable, and efficient services.

That’s why we are transforming the ferry network, backed by a £580 million investment for five years to 2026 from the Scottish Government. Our plans to upgrade and improve ferries and harbours will be delivered over the next decade, and plans are already well underway.

In our Invest in Ferries report, you will find more details about our current and future plans to modernise and upgrade the network:

We’re confident, with the required level of funding and commitment, our plans can be delivered in the next 10 years to ensure island and rural communities remain connected and their economies are supported.
