The Hjaltland is a multi purpose roro ferry that is currently owned and operated by the Scottish ferry company Northlink Ferries. She was built in 2002 by Aker Finnyards, Finland for the company where she was placed on the route that links Aberdeen with Lerwick, occasionally stopping in Kirkwall as well. In 2010, she was forced to stay in Aberdeen for two days due to a vomitig bug that infected 17 people. In 2007, she was refitted with extra cabins, making the total rise to 356 berths. She has only one sister ship, the Hrossey. Her current port of registry is Lerwick, UK.
