Pentland Ferries Booking Offices are situated at St Margaret’s Hope and Gills Bay ferry terminals, this allows us to provide an up to date service and to let you know of any news that is relevant to your crossing, as well as local information.

We believe that booking and travel with us should be as easy as possible. You can book online or by telephoning our booking offices based at Gill’s Bay and St Margaret’s Hope (Monday – Friday, 9.00 am – 5.00 pm). You will be guaranteed a friendly and personal service from either office.

Please be aware that if you are using any form of gift or discount vouchers (including Scot Exec vouchers), bookings cannot be made online. In these circumstances, please contact the booking office direct.

Passengers should arrive at the ferry terminal no later than 30 minutes before departure time. Card details will be taken and debited at time of booking for reservations made via telephone. You can also pre-pay by booking over the internet. For passengers that arrive at the terminal without an advanced booking, payment can either be made onboard by cash or in the shoreside office by credit/debit card one hour before sailing, please note, we do not accept American Express.

We do not charge an amendment or cancellation fee for bookings made over the phone with our Customer Services staff. Customers who have made a booking online will not be charged an amendment fee and will receive a full refund if cancelled by 4pm the day before travel.

For vans over 7m, commercial vehicles and freight, please contact our booking offices in order to obtain a quote and make a booking. These vehicles cannot be booked online.
