A LIMITED number of passengers can now once again travel on the Fair Isle ferry, whilst adhering to strict Covid-safe measures.

Passengers have been unable to travel on the MV Good Shepherd IV since the start of the pandemic, although the lifeline ferry service has continued to operate, carrying essential goods and freight into and out of the remote isle.

Shetland Islands Council said a review of the earlier risk assessment on the route has identified that a limited number of passengers can now travel on the ferry once again.

Passengers must wear face masks on board the vessel and regular use of hand sanitisers will be required.

The Fair Isle ferry service is a bookings only service, and passengers can book by contacting the bookings office in Fair Isle on 01595 760363. For more details visit here.

Shetland Islands Council recently submitted a funding bid to the UK Government for a new Fair Isle ferry, which would offer greater accessibility.

Flights also run to Fair Isle from Tingwall Airport.
