More disruptions to North Boats

Serco NorthLink has announced disruptions to its service between Lerwick and Aberdeen tonight.

The southbound Hrossey, which was due to call at Kirkwall, will now sail direct to Aberdeen, leaving Lerwick at the usual time of 5.30pm.

According to the ferry company the arrival of the Hjaltland, making her trip north, may be delayed until 10am at Lerwick tomorrow.

NorthLink said the disruptions were due to “forecast adverse weather conditions”. However, the Pentland Firth service was not expected to be affected.

Saturday’s northbound sailing of the Hrossey, due to leave Aberdeen at 5pm and call at Kirkwall on the way to Lerwick, was under review, the company added. An update would follow tomorrow morning.
