WITH the weather turning windy once again NorthLink has made changes to its timetable for the lifeline ferry service.
Thursday’s southbound sailing from Lerwick to Aberdeen will now depart at 4pm, three hours ahead of schedule. The Hrossey could also be slightly delayed in arriving at Aberdeen.
Meanwhile, the northbound Hjaltland will sail from Aberdeen as timetabled but it is expected to arrive at Kirkwall up to an hour late.
Both cargo vessels have been cancelled.
