THE UNSETTLED weather continues to play havoc with NorthLink’s passenger and freight vessels schedules.
Monday night’s southbound sailing of the Hrossey is now leaving Lerwick at 2pm, five hours earlier than timetabled. Check-in is between 1 and 1.30pm.
NorthLink said that the vessel might be slightly delayed in arriving in Aberdeen on Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, the Hjaltland, leaving Aberdeen at 7pm, is not expected to arrive in Lerwick before 11am on Tuesday.
Meanwhile the departure of the cargo boat Helliar, sailing from Kirkwall Aberdeen, is likely to be delayed until 5am on Tuesday morning.
