Well done to Anna Signeul and her team. We wish them the best of luck in Gothenburg on Wednesday. What an exciting prospect for the players - beat the group leaders for an automatic place in the World Cup finals. Thanks for your spending your Saturday with us here at BBC Scotland. Have a great evening.
Celtic and Scotland striker Suzanne Grant: "I don't think we could have asked for a better result. The girls were fantastic, especially in the second half."
Scotland striker Jane Ross: "We are really pleased to have got the three points and now we have the play-off spot."
Scotland trail Group 4 leader Sweden by three points but have a better goal difference, so a win would put Scotland into the World Cup finals in Canada. But the team head to Gothenburg knowing they are in the play-offs at least.
Scotland coach Anna Signeul: "It's a great evening. Kim scored on her 100th cap. They'll feel good after a game like this. We can relax and go to Sweden and do our best."
Congratulations to Kim Little who scored on her 100th appearance for Scotland.
Rachel Corsie: "Everyone is contributing. We are really pleased with our clean sheet. We can focus now on the game in Sweden."
If Scotland win in Sweden in midweek they will top the group.
Jenny Beattie makes a yard of space for herself 20 yards from goal and clips a beauty of a left-foot shot over the keeper to make it nine.
We're playing the second minute of the three added for injury time.
Jane Ross could have extended her lead in the World Cup qualifying goal scoring charts there but she lofts the ball over the bar from eight yards.
Former Scotland defender Shelley Kerr on the Faroe Islands: "They are a very honest team, they are hard-working."
Hayley Lauder is named player of the match on the BBC Alba coverage, which goes to show it's not all about scoring goals.
Arsenal's Christie Murray controls the ball on edge of the D, glances at the position of the goalie and clips a shot that comes back off the upright.
Here's a stat to consider. Scotland have scored eight goals from 30 attempts at goal, 18 of which were on target. The Faroese have had one shot on target and none off target in the 80 minutes so far.
Jo Love is replaced by Suzanne Mulvey, who has 15 minutes to contribute to this comfortable win for Scotland.
BBC Radio Scotland commentator Paul Mitchell: "Scotland lead by eight goals to nil. I haven't said that too many times in my career."
The goals are raining in this half and, Leanne Crichton's long-range strike apart, have been fairly similar - the winger beats her opponent and plays a low pass into the six-yard box for a Scotland player to side-foot home.
Kim Little sets up overlapping full-back Frankie Fantom-Brown whose shot is parried into the path of hat-trick hero Jane Ross but she prods the ball just wide.
Paul Saffer @UEFAcomPaulS: "With a hat-trick v the Faroes, @ScottishFA's @janeross10 is now top scorer in UEFA @FIFAWWC qualifying on 13 goals http://uefa.to/1qvuRnv"
Leanne Crichton puts Scotland seven goals clear after an hour of play with a powerful shot over the keeper from the edge of the box.
It's another goal for Scotland, with Rachel Corsie tapping home after an accurate cross from the right.
Jane Ross rounds off a lovely move down the left to score her hat-trick with a slick finish into the far corner of the net.
Jo Love slides in but misses a low cross from the left by a fraction of an inch. The Scots have started the second half like they did the first.
Jane Ross is first to react to a loose ball in the box and she lashes a shot into the net for her second of the game.
We're under way again.
Celtic and Scotland striker Suzanne Grant on juggling motherhood and playing football: "It's been difficult. It's hard but it's worth it. I trained up until I was seven months pregnant."
Former Aberdeen and Scotland defender Willie Miller: "Kim Little has been prominent but she has got herself into situations when she should have had a shot at goal rather than passing."
After three goals in 11 minutes, the first half settled down into a pattern of Scotland trying to pick their way through the block of Faroese white shirts. Scotland look comfortable - just how eager will they be to push for more goals when they have the match against Sweden to play in Gothenburg in midweek?
Former Scotland defender Shelley Kerr: "Maybe we should be shooting a bit more. We've done a lot of the nice things but I'd like to see more at the end of it."
As Scotland are caught offside, former defender Willie Miller says: "You can get a bit frustrated when you are playing against a defence like that. They have shown a lot of spirit despite losing three goals. They have stuck to their plan."
Hayley Lauder brings out a good save from Wardum in the Faroe Islanders' goal with a powerful low shot.
Little put Scotland ahead early in the match.Copyright: PA
Kim Little just about takes a fresh-air swipe at the ball 10 yards from goal, after Caroline Weir cut it back when she ought to have had a pop at goal herself.
The visitors have stemmed the flow of goals but not the tide as Scotland continue to push forward. Can Scotland better the 7-2 result they enjoyed in Torshavn?
Scotland striker Suzanne Grant: "The Faroe Islands players are sitting deep and making it harder for Scotland now."
Former Scotland defender Willie Miller: "It's quite incredible the ball retention Scotland have had, and the accuracy of their passing."

Teresa Watson, Inverness: "Are you going to give us the first round Scottish cup results?"
There are two rows of white-shirted Faroese players on the 18-yard line. They really need a spell of possession to settle into the match.
Scotland play some nice one-twos down the right, with Frankie Fantom-Brown and Jane Ross heavily involved. They are in total control.
Jo Love slides to meet Frankie Fantom-Brown's cross from the right but is denied by a smart dive to the right by the Faroes' goalie.
This looks like it could be a hammering for the Faroese. Jane Ross curls home a right-foot shot to make it three goals in the first 10 minutes - an excellent finish after skilfully creating space for herself in the box.
Caroline Weir is alert at the far post as she thumps home a close-range shot in off the post to double Scotland's advantage.
It's been a totally dominant start for the Scots. They look sharper than their opponents already.
Hayley Lauder lays the ball on a plate for Kim Little to pounce in front of goal and slot the ball home for the opener.
The Faroes are playing in their first World Cup qualifying campaign.
Scotland: Fay, Love, Lauder, Little, Sneddon, Crichton, Ross, Corsie, Beattie, Fantom-Brown, Weir. Subs: Lynn, McSorley, Mitchell, Docherty, Murray, Mulvey, Richards.
Faroe Islands: Wardum, Kristiansen, Petersen, O Danielsen, F Danielsen, A Sevdal, Josephsen, H Sevdal, Klakstein, Magnussen, Andreasen.
And we're off...
Russia lost 4-1 to Germany earlier today so as long as Scotland win this evening they will be in the play-offs for the World Cup finals in Canada next year at least. And they could still win the group.
Scotland will play 4-3-1-2, with Anna Signeul telling BBC Radio Scotland reporter Heather Dewar that she thought 4-4-2 was too predictable a formation.
The Scotland team, in dark blue jerseys and shorts, belt out Flower of Scotland ahead of the kick-off of their penultimate qualifier.
Scotland coach Anna Signeul: "It's absolutely brilliant to have Kim back in the team. It will be tough for her today because there will be a lot of Faroe Islands players around her. I've never seen Kim Little as good as he is right now."
And here come the teams...
A very good evening, all. It may be September but Fir Park is bathed in warm sunshine. Let's hope we have an enjoyable game with plenty of goals to rave about.
I'm going to pass the live text duties on to Keir Murray. Thank you for your company this afternoon and enjoy Scotland v Faroe Islands.
Scotland's Women's World Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands coming up.
Jenni: "Celtic were the big winners in the SPL this afternoon, they made gains on all of the top three teams."
BBC Scotland's Cheri Burns at Fir Park
"With less than 30 minutes to go until kick-off in the Women's World Cup qualifier between Scotland and Faroe Islands, the crowd is filling up here at Fir Park, as they eagerly anticipate this penultimate group pool fixture.
"Scotland head into this one knowing a win would guarantee them a play-off spot, and ensure they remain in with a chance of toppling Group 4 leaders Sweden, if they can secure victory in Gothenburg midweek.
"The last time these sides met, the Scots came away with an emphatic 7-2 win, getting their campaign off to the perfect start and, despite being without the injured Leanne Ross and Lisa Evans today, Anna Signeul's charges are firm favourites to overcome their opponents - who are yet to get a win on the board."
Robbie Devenney: "So Hibs, we still make stupid mistakes like last season but apparently have fight and don't give up, still not good enough #bbcsportscot"
tom watson: "Hibs stay above the relegation zone and keep alive those dreams of a coveted top 6 finish. #bbcsportscot"

It's been frustrating for the Aberdeen players in the last couple of minutes. They claimed unsuccessfully for a handball at a free-kick moments ago and felt they should have had a corner after Niall McGinn's volley, claiming there had been a touch from a Celtic player.
Another chance for Aberdeen as Adam Rooney heads down for Niall McGinn to volley over.

Decent attack from Aberdeen with David Goodwillie and Ryan Jack doing well to retain possession. They eventually win a corner but the delivery is poor.

Kris Commons finds the net via a deflection off Shaleum Logan. That goal came 24 seconds into the second half.

Nicky Low sizes up a long-range shot at the Celtic goal. It has power but is too high.
BBC Scotland's senior football reporter at Celtic Park
"Celtic look very comfortable thus far, with Aleksandar Tonev looking lively on his debut. Ronny Deila would want them to have capitalised to a greater degree on their dominance, because at 1-0 Aberdeen will rightly feel they're still in the match."

"This almost seems a fresh start to the season for Celtic manager Ronny Deila, with his captain Scott Brown available to him for the first time and his new signings all fit and ready to play.
"This truly is Ronny Deila's team and despite Aberdeen's bright start here, that early goal will do wonders for the home side's confidence."
Celtic are in front. Efe Ambrose's volley from Kris Commons comes off Jason Denayer then the crossbar before finding its way into the net.
