The Rosyth - Zeebrugge ferry was a freight-only ferry travelling between Rosyth in Fife, Scotland, and Zeebrugge in Belgium. It is currently operated by DFDS and travels in each direction three times a week.

A passenger service operated on the route until December 2010; it was originally provided by Superfast from 2002 to 2008, with DFDS (formerly Norfolkline) taking over in 2009 to offer a thrice-weekly service each way. However they found the service was unprofitable, and cancelled it a year later, replacing it with the current freight-only service.

Passengers wishing to travel from Scotland to mainland Europe by boat will now find the nearest crossing is from Newcastle to Amsterdam (actually the Dutch port of IJmuiden).

The freight service was closed in 2018, following an engine fire on the vessel.
