More ferry delays

WITH the stormy weather continuing Wednesday night’s northbound sailing of the Hjaltland will be delayed by around five hours.

Ferry operator NorthLink said on Wednesday morning that due to the sea heights in the Fair Isle gap they had put back the departure of the Hjaltland from 7pm to midnight.

However, passengers are required to check in as per original schedule.

The Hjaltland had already battled against high seas on her way south overnight, delaying her arrival in Aberdeen by almost four hours on Wednesday morning.

The Hrossey meanwhile, sailing south from Lerwick to Aberdeen via Kirkwall, is likely to be late in arriving at Hatson Pier.
