Aberdeen docks.

Recommended Posts

Always some very unique ships in Aberdeen (Fittie) docks and a ferry, there would have been more photos if it hadn’t been raining so very very heavily.

That would be filed under things that would never happen also I can’t see them ever using Rosyth which is the more realistic option.

Yes, it’s a little bit like asking if BF might operate to Barcelona.  The idea of a BF route to Scotland is not completely stupid, but any such route would surely use a West Coast port, not an East Coast one.  Which in effect means one of Greenock / Ardrossan / Troon / Cairnryan (with most of those requiring significant modification to make them suitable).  But we’ve had that discussion before, and back then I was roundly condemned for coming up with an idea that was never going to happen.

Brittany Ferries have sailed from Aberdeen when they provided refit cover on the Shetland service in 1983 using the Penn Ar Bed!

That’s a case of a BF ship being chartered out to another operator.  Doesn’t mean BF has operated to Aberdeen any more than the charter of Cotentin means BF has operated routes in the Baltic.

I think the original post was about using Aberdeen for refits not running a service. I often wonder about Falmouth, which has a history of ferry refits.

Ah - that makes more sense!  It wasn’t the way Neil or I read it.
