Southbound ferry will not leave until tomorrow

Tonight’s southbound sailing of Serco NorthLink’s Hrossey will be delayed until tomorrow morning because of high southerly winds.

The ferry was due to leave Lerwick at 7pm tonight but will not now depart until 5.30am tomorrow. She is expected to arrive at Aberdeen at 6pm on Monday and leave again on for the return trip north at 9pm.

The northbound sailing of the Hjaltland tonight will leave Aberdeen at the usual Sunday time of 5pm, NorthLink said, but was likely to be delayed in getting to Kirkwall for between one and one and a half hours. However, she should be on time for arrival in Lerwick at 7.30am tomorrow.
