Tomorrow night’s departures of the NorthLink ferries Hrossey and Hjaltland are both going to be delayed for several hours, according to the company.
The southbound sailing of the Hjaltland, scheduled to leave at 5.30pm, is now expected to 11pm with no call at Kirkwall, arriving in Aberdeen at 11am on Tuesday.
The northbound sailing of the Hrossey from Aberdeen, scheduled for 7pm, is going to be delayed until midnight, and expected to arrive in Lerwick at around noon on Tuesday.
NorthLink said the delays were due to “forecast adverse weather conditions”.
The departure of the cargo ship Hildasay from Lerwick, scheduled for 6pm on Monday, is now postponed until the same time on Tuesday.
The Pentland Firth service, operated by the Hamnavoe, would continue to operate with some minor delays and possible rescheduling, the ferry company added.
