More About Rosyth

Rosyth is a port town in Fife, Scotland. It was built in the early 20th century to house the workers at the nearby Rosyth Naval Dockyard. The town is the terminus of Scotland's only direct ferry link to continental Europe.

Most travellers arriving in Rosyth will immediately continue their journeys within Scotland. The ancient capital city, Dunfermline is only 3 miles to the north, while the current capital, Edinburgh is just 12 miles to the south. Fife Council runs a free shuttle bus from the ferry terminal serving the Ferrytoll Park and Ride bus interchange and Inverkeithing Rail Station, both of which offer ample onward connections

Until the early 20th Century, Rosyth Castle was almost completely surrounded by the sea. Now, it is a slightly incongruous sight, surrounded as it is by the naval dockyards and industrial buildings, which were built on land reclaimed from the sea. The castle consists of a tower house and courtyard, largely dating from the late 15th century. It's not normally possible to access the interior of the tower house.

Rosyth Ferry Terminal

The route crosses the North Sea between Rosyth, Fife, Scotland and Zeebrugge, Flanders, Belgium. Near Rosyth, the ferry passes under the Forth Bridge.

Following a detailed consultation and tendering process by the Scottish Executive, the Greek shipping company Superfast Ferries (owned by the Attica Group) were confirmed as the operator of the route. Services commenced in May 2002 using two ships - MS Superfast IX and MS Superfast X - to provide an overnight service with a crossing time of 17 hours.

Whilst car traffic, particularly in the summer months, proved relatively good, concern mounted that there were insufficient lorries and other freight traffic to make the service viable in the long term. The service was reduced to three times per week in 2005 and Superfast IX transferred to the Baltic Sea.

In 2006, the sale of Superfast X was announced and the vessel was replaced with the smaller Blue Star I - of Superfast's sister company Blue Star Ferries (also owned by Attica). In 2008 it was announced that Superfast/Blue Star Ferries would discontinue the service in September.

The decision to axe the route caused considerable political disquiet in Scotland. The Scottish Government sought to encourage a new operator to take over the route. In late 2008 Norfolkline announced that it would restart the route in May 2009, again using a thrice-weekly overnight service (but extended to 20 hours, rather than the previous 17 hours, to reduce fuel consumption). [2] Like Superfast, the Norfolkline service offered a service for both vehicle and foot passengers.

Norfolkline is a Netherlands-based a subsidiary of the Danish shipping company DFDS and formerly of the Maersk Group. On 17 December 2009 DFDS announced that it had agreed to purchase Norfolkline from Maersk.

Norfolkline's vessel for the route was the MV Scottish Viking which, despite the name, is registered in Italy. On 5 August 2010 the vessel collided with a small fishing boat off the coast of Scotland, resulting in the loss of the fishing boat and the death in one of the two men aboard the fishing boat.

On 20 August 2010 it was announced that the passenger service would end on 15 December 2010, with the service being replaced by a DFDS freight-only ferry service. The replacement freight-only service is operated with two ferries the Tor Finlandia and the Cimbria Seaways with 4 departures per week.

Unless another operator recommences operations, there will again be no direct passenger ferry service between Scotland and continental Europe.
