NORTHLINK has scooped a national award for “best ferry” at this year’s Guardian and Observer Travel Awards.

The ferry company, managed and operated by Serco, won the gong at a ceremony held in Edinburgh on Friday (3 March) to celebrate the best in travel and tourism.

Serco NorthLink managing director Stuart Garrett said: “We are extremely honoured to have received this prestigious national accolade.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their ongoing support and to those who voted for us. The award not only recognises NorthLink Ferries as ferry operator of choice, but helps to showcase Scotland, and indeed the Northern Isles, as an exciting UK tourism destination.”
