More ferry delays

Bad weather has once more disrupted Northern Isles ferry services with the Hrossay, which is to sail from Lerwick at 7pm tonight, expected to be delayed by up to three hours before arriving at Aberdeen tomorrow morning (Friday).

On Wednedsay, the scheduled sailing of the Hjaltland to Kirkwall and Aberdeen was pushed ahead to mid-day owing to bad weather. Hjaltland arrived in Aberdeen at 6.51am.
