THE WINDY weather is again having an impact on NorthLink’s timetable.

Saturday’s southbound passenger ferry is now due to leave Lerwick at 4pm, three hours ahead of schedule, to allow for more time to get to Aberdeen.

Meanwhile, the Hrossey, sailing from Aberdeen via Kirkwall to Lerwick is expected to experience some minor delays getting to Shetland.

Saturday’s scheduled sailing of the cargo boat Helliar has been cancelled. The next departure will now be on Monday morning.
