Ferry concessions for National Entitlement Cardholders

Who qualifies

If you own a National Entitlement Card and qualify for free bus travel, you can also get two free return ferry journeys to the mainland every year if you live in:

  • the Western Isles
  • Orkney
  • Shetland

You must carry your National Entitlement Card when making your journey.

Visit the Transport Scotland website for more information on ferry concessions and how to claim your free journeys.

Young Scot cards

If you have a Young Scot card, and you live on a Scottish island, you'll be sent 4 free ferry vouchers each year while you're 16, 17 and 18.

The vouchers can only be used by you and will have your photo and card number printed on them. You must carry your Young Scot card with you when making a ferry trip.
