NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

Late Sailing Scheduled for County Show Visitors

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

The 1645 hours M.V Hamnavoe sailing from Scrabster to Stromness will depart one hour later than timetabled, whilst the return sailing from Scrabster will now depart at 2000 hours, arriving into Stromness at 2130 hours.

Stuart Garrett, Managing Director at Serco NorthLink Ferries, said: “The Orkney County Show is a key event in the calendar for both those from Orkney and the mainland so we were keen to allow passengers to enjoy as much of it as possible.

“We’re very happy to be accommodating those attending and travelling with us and trust that they will enjoy the very best of what Orkney has to offer in terms of produce and crafts.”

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
