Long wait for Hrossey to get into Aberdeen Harbour
The NorthLink ship Hrossey is due to dock at Aberdeen Harbour at 3.30pm after bad weather stopped her entering the port for nearly nine hours.
The passenger and vehicle ferry was due to arrive at 7am but had to dodge the easterly gale outside the harbour all day from about 6.30am.
NorthLink is hoping for a quick turnaround to sail for Kirkwall and Lerwick again at 5pm.
Storm force winds have been battering eastern Scotland, causing flooding, damaging buildings and bringing trees down across Aberdeen.
