Northbound ferry sailing delayed

Today’s northbound sailing of the Hrossey is again affected by delays due to the weather.

Last night’s storms and heavy seas meant the southward leg of the journey was delayed and Hrossey is not due in Aberdeen until 7pm today. The new departure time is estimated at 10pm – five hours later than scheduled.

Passenger and car check-in will start at 8pm, with final check-in at 9pm. Estimated arrival in Kirkwall is 6am on Sunday with Hrossey arriving due to arrive in Lerwick at 1pm.
