THERE will be some disruption to the NorthLink ferry service this weekend due to the weather.

The northbound sailing from Aberdeen on Saturday will now depart at 3pm instead of 5pm, and it will no longer call at Orkney.

The southbound Hrossey will also leave Lerwick two hours early at 5pm.

Both freight sailings on Saturday are under review, with a chance of cancellation.
