NorthLink timetable changes

FERRY operator NorthLink had to cancel Sunday night’s sailing of the cargo ship Helliar from Lerwick to Aberdeen after the vessel suffered technical problems on her journey north.

The Helliar was originally expected tom arrive in Lerwick at 2pm on Sunday afternoon, but this has now been revised to 9pm after she left Kirkwall only at 11am on Sunday morning.

The next boat leaving Lerwick will be the ferry Hrossey on Monday night sailing directly to Aberdeen.
