Superferry "Norröna" Puts Scrabster On International Route Map
The superferry Norröna owned by Smyril Line was welcomed on Monday evening with bagpipes and champagne as a new ferry service to Norway and the Faroe Islands became a reality.  This is Scotland's first mainland ferry service to these countries. The quayside welcome for the north Atlantic superferry Norröna at Scrabster, Caithness, marked the launch of the country's newest mainland international service. Thousands of holiday-makers from the two Nordic states are expected to arrive in the Highlands this summer using the weekly service. Last night’s maiden sailing from the Faroese capital Torshavn trip saw VIPs from the islands government among the 150 or so passengers disembarking at Scrabster.  The ferry is built to the highest quality standards and is rated amongst the top cruise liners offering passengers a fantastic stay on board. They were welcomed ashore by port officials to the sound of the pipes and drums of Caithness Junior Pipe Band.
