As this question points out the routes from Sweden and Denmark to Newcastle has been discontinued. Driving the whole way from Stockholm (for example) to Scotland is some 26 hours and geography suggests that there may be a ferry option parts of the way.

What I have come up with this far is the Gothenburg-Kiel ferry (a bit off when coming from Stockholm) and the Amsterdam-Newcastle ferry. Are these the two best options for combining driving with ferrying or are there more alternatives? (Apart from the freighter options already listed in the referenced question.)

There don't seem to be any ferry routes from Stockholm going West of Gdansk.

You can probably go to Direct Ferries to look at a fairly comprehensive list of major ferry operators around Europe.

The best I can figure here is Stockholm-> Gdansk drive to Amsterdam or Rotterdam and take a ferry to England then drive to Scotland.

Rome2Rio also reports similar ferry routes.


Thanks to @Willeke for pointing me in the right direction:

There may again be ferries from Esjberg to Harwich starting this summer.

  • There used to be a Denmark (Esjberg) to England (Harwich) ferry, which is shown on some sites. But I can not find details and even on the sites that show the line on the map I can not get time table details.

  • +1 as you now have two completely different options for routes.

  • Via Gdansk is not an improvement compared to the route via Kiel. Then it would even be easier to drive all the way from Stockholm to Amsterdam. Gdansk - Amsterdam ~ 1200 KM and Stockholm - Amsterdam ~1400 KM. Commented May 22, 2015 at 20:47
