NORTHLINK is set to run ferries to and from Shetland again following a number of cancellations – but the timetables will be heavily disrupted.

Tuesday night’s northbound sailing to Lerwick via Kirkwall will instead depart Aberdeen at 6am on Wednesday morning.

It is due to arrive at Kirkwall at 1.30pm before docking in Lerwick at 8pm on Wednesday night.

The southbound sailing will now leave Lerwick at 2am on Wednesday morning, arriving in Aberdeen at 1pm.

Tuesday’s freight sailings, however, are cancelled.

Wednesday’s southbound passenger sailing will depart Lerwick at around midnight on Wednesday night and arrive in Kirkwall at 6am on Thursday. It will then arrive in Aberdeen around 1pm.

Meanwhile the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning of snow overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday. A full forecast can be found on our weather pages here.
