A Scottish marine services company is currently considering the launch of a new ferry service between Rosyth-Edinburgh and Groningen Holland. According to TEC Offshore David Kellas, they were doing everything they could to make it happen.

The new route will focus on freight traffic, though cars and passengers will also be carried.

Port of Leith-Edinburgh (Scotland)

The service will use ferries from Stena Line freight group and is expected to start at the end of October 2019. Scotland has plans to open a direct service to the European mainland in order to supply whisky and timber products to major markets like Denmark, Germany, and Italy.

A service between Rosyth and Zeebrugge Belgium was terminated in 2010. Travelers to Scotland currently use the overnight crossing ervice between IJmuiden and Newcastle. Freight companies drive to the south.
