Poor forecast means boat will leave early

0 comments, , by , in Fishing & Sea, News

NorthLink’s southbound sailing tonight will be three hours earlier than scheduled because of forecasted bad weather.

The Hjaltland will now leave Lerwick at 4pm instead of the normal 7pm, with check-in times between 3pm and 3.30pm. The expected arrival in Aberdeen tomorrow will still be 7am.

According to NorthLink the northbound sailing of the Hrossey will leave on schedule at 7pm, but due to the weather tomorrow’s arrival in Lerwick could be subject to minor delay.
