Serco NorthLink Ferries has scheduled a later sailing to accommodate those visiting this weekend’s Orkney County Show (Saturday, 9 August).

The annual Orkney County Show will include over 90 trade stands, an extensive entertainment programme and an agricultural show displaying local livestock at its very best. For more information visit www.orkneycountyshow.co.uk
